A founding member of the Peoples Democratic Party, Chief Abu King Shuluwa, on Wednesday said former president Olusegun Obasanjo and the National Chairman of the party, Alhaji Bamanga Tukur should be blamed for the crises rocking the party.
He also faulted roles played by the Chairman of PDP Board of Trustees; Chief Tony Anenih and a prominent Ijaw leader; Chief Edwin Clark in the current hostility within the party.
Addressing journalists in his Makurdi residence, Shuluwa, an associate of the late Shehu Musa Yar’Adua and former vice president Atiku Abubakar, said the quartet took advantage of President Goodluck Jonathan’s perceived weakness to mislead the party and pursued their personal agenda.
“Don’t forget that Anenih is the chief financier of the People Democratic Movement and don’t that he wants it to be registered as a party. The entire governors fighting the president are loyalists of ex – president Obasanjo while Clark is drumming ethic war.
“Tukur is running the party like a private property, bringing crises for the President.
“President Jonathan does not know the power play currently going, he is innocent and they are making him to look confused,” Shuluwa stated.
