PDP Raises Alarm Over Plan To Disrupt Tribunal Sitting In Nasarawa, Urges  Security To Be On Alert



The Peoples Democratic party, (PDP)  on Wednesday raised the alarm over planned disruption of tomorrow’s (Thursday) sitting of the state’s Governorship Election Petition Tribunal In Lafia by people suspected to be  government officials to disrupt sitting to adopt final written addresses by the tribunal.

Chairman of the  People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Nasarawa state,  Francis Orogu  raised the alarm during a press conference in Lafia yesterday said  that the alarm  raised was to draw the attention of the security agencies and other stakeholders to available information on the plan action to creat chaotic situation in two locations in the state.

He said “The attention of the party  has  again been  drawn to an alleged plan by some suspected government officials to cause mischief by organizing crisis with intent to disrupt the Governorship election petition tribunal from doing it’s job in Lafia as   closing argument by parties  is slated to hold in the state Capital”

“As a responsible party we have  to notify  the security agents ahead the plan action so as  to take necessary steps  to forestall break down of law and order especially in Akwanga ana Lafia”

“We urge all unpatriotic  Persons nursing the intention,  parading themselves as mastermind to allow peace reign as the tribunal is set to deliver quality  in the state”.

The opposition PDP  however,  dismissed  any hatch rumour that the party is demanding for the relocation of the tribunal from the state.

 “The party  is not contemplating  or have   reasons to justify relocation of governorship tribunal sitting in the state capital to  some where else. We have confidence on the tribunal as such Nasarawa state remained the choice for the tribunal”.

Orogu then reaffirmed the stand of the party to  respect the decision of the governorship petition tribunal sitting in Lafia.

Speaking when contacted, the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Nasarawa state police command, DSP Nansel Ramham said the command  has put up mechanisms in place to forestall any breakdown of law and order.
” Massive deployment has been made in that regard”

He warned those contemplating such actions to have a rethink as the command was ever ready to deal with those found involved in disrupting the peace of the state.
