Labaran Maku Hits Back At David Mark, Ahmadu Ali Through A Press Statement by Countryman93: 4:01pm On Jan 28, 2015
The attention of the Maku Campaign Organisation has been drawn to repeated accusations by some leaders of the People's Democratic Party (PDP), who continuously portray the governorship candidate of the All Progress Grand Alliance (APGA), Mr. Labaran Maku as an ingrate for dumping the PDP to pursue his ambition in APGA.

The accusations have amounted to blackmailing President Goodluck Jonathan of allegedly sponsoring Mr. Maku to contest the governorship of Nasarawa State on the platform of APGA.

Last week at the PDP rally in Keffi to flag off the campaign of the highly unpopular Alhaji Yusuf Agabi, the Senate President, David Mark, accused Mr. Maku of being ungrateful because he left the PDP to emerge as the governorship candidate of APGA in Nasarawa State.

On Tuesday, 27th January, 2015, various speakers at the presidential campaign in Lafia repeated the same accusations.

While Mr. Maku has high respect for Senator Mark and Dr. Ahmadu Ali and wishes not to join issues with them, he finds it especially curious that Senator Mark has remained mute over the defection in his own native Benue State of Former Minister of State for Trade and Investment Dr. Sam Ortom and former PDP National Chairman Senator Barnabas Gemade who have gone all the way to the opposition APC to contest for the governorship and senatorial positions respectively.


Why has Senator Mark not condemned these defections from his native Benue state? Why the undue attention on Mr. Maku and Nasarawa State?


The import of these attacks on the APGA governorship candidate clearly shows that there is panic in the PDP in Nasarawa State following the emergence of Mr. Maku as the Flag bearer of APGA.

The truth of the matter is that Mr. Maku never told anyone even while contesting for the governorship ticket in the PDP that the president was behind him, neither did he suggest to anyone when he decamped to APGA that President Jonathan supported his decision.

The PDP primaries was marred by irregularities including the change of delegates' list and the manipulation of religion to impose Alhaji Yusuf Agabi as candidate. Some delegates' lives were openly threatened at the ill-fated PDP primaries at Nasarawa town if they ever voted for Mr. Maku.

Before Mr. Maku left the PDP, he followed the due process to seek redress over the highly bungled governorship primaries including petitioning the PDP Governorship Primaries Appeal Panel under the chairmanship of the National Chairman, Alhaji Adamu Mua'zu on the irregularities and other anti-democratic activities that led to the imposition of Alhaji Yusuf Agabi as the candidate of the PDP.

However, the Appeal Panel neither acknowledged nor invited Mr. Maku to defend the appeal he filed against the conduct of the governorship primary election.

Since loyalty is crucial in party politics, why was Mr. Maku, a loyal party member and leader of the party in Nasarawa state for four years schemed out of the PDP primaries on the basis of religion?

Another pertinent question to ask is why scheme out a loyal party member who stood by the party and defended its policies and programmes at the state and national level for many years only to turn around to use his loyalty against him?

The real issue in Nasarawa state is that some people within and outside the state believe that no Christian should ever be governor of Nasarawa state. Therefore, Mr. Maku is being persecuted purely for religious reasons.

The attacks on him are orchestrated to sustain the status quo in Nasarawa, which is already leading to destruction of the state by insurgents and mercenaries. This development portends danger to the future unity and development of Nasarawa state and our dear country.




Mr. Maku' s well considered decision to leave PDP for APGA was actually intended to bring out the real hidden issues that have continued to undermine the unity and development of Nasarawa State.

In doing so, he is fully aware that he will be blackmailed and maligned because he ever dared to challenge the status quo by those who want a divided state.

It is equally curious how some of the PDP chieftains openly expressed their anger because Mr. Maku is campaigning for the president in Nasarawa State even though his new party, the APGA, has adopted Mr. President as its own presidential candidate because of his sterling leadership qualities and many achievements in office.


The Maku Campaign Organisation views the sustained attack against the APGA candidate as a desperate measure by some leaders of the PDP to distract him from campaigning to defeat their candidate and the incumbent in the upcoming governorship elections as Mr. Maku is experienced enough in politics to know there is no way a sitting president will support him in an opposition party against his own party.

We therefore urge our teeming supporters to disregard all insinuations and threats and sustain the tempo of the campaign for Mr. Labaran Maku and Dr. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan to emerge as President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and governor of Nasarawa State in this year's general elections.

Why are they fighting? What are they fighting for? Both PDP and APGA in Nassarawa state will be defeated by the Incumbent and APC's Almakura Tanko. The People of Nasarawa made it clear that while they desire change in Aso Rock, they are comfortable with the governmment of Tanko Almakura that came to their rescue in 2011. The process that brought Almakura to power also led to the shameful sacking of PDP's ex-Governor Doma of which Maku wasthe Deputy. What has PDP done for the good people of Nasarawa? Anyway, APGA and PDP should accept the fact that there is no vacancy in Lafia Government House. Nigerians are not only yearning for a Change in the Presidency, they are also telling the PdP to pack their load and go at all level.

Ever after saying Nigeria has developed Ebola vaccine, life has never been the same for this Maku.
Nigerian politicians are classless. Was it not Maku who called Kwankwaso and co political nomads after they left PDP for APC? Now, this same Maku has become a political nomad too. What a world!

Contrary to public opinion especially on the social media, Labaran Maku is coasting to victory in Nasarawa State. For those who are in tune with developments in Nasarawa, you will agree that the state is electorally radical. The masses who in just a month plus rallied for Tanko Almakura the incumbent are badly disenchanted with him for woefully failing their high expectations. They have vowed to pay back with unprecedented revolution for Labaran Maku's APGA. It may sound like a joke but I challenge people to make their verifications. All the initial posturing of his Eggon Kinsmen has changed tremendously. Now with the Eggon fully in mobilization for their kinsman, it is an assurance of 0ver 50% votes. Coming to the Alago nation next in population, Maku will pull at least 30% votes in solidarity with their son Alhaji Ibrahim Abu his running mate. The Biggest jugular for Maku is that a chunk of PDP followership in the state who cut across the Megili/koro, Mada, Gbagyi, Afo, Agatu, Tiv, Fulani, Yeskwa Panda and many other ethnic nationalities are loyalists of Labaran Maku who will fight from within in retaliation for the ugly manipulation at the PDP primaries. Further more, the massive Igbo residents in Karu, Mararaba, Nyanya, Masaka, Karshi, Ado, Auta Balefi, One Man Village, Keffi, Lafia, Akwanga etc are mobilising heavily for John Labaran Maku on the platform of their favourite Party APGA. It is wise to make confirmations and follow up with developments before making erroneous conclusions on politics and personalities in the social media. For the rural masses, the idea of voting for the Chicken Logo excites them a lot. Funnily, the chicken is a popular topic amongst the people in all gatherings which has helped in accentuating Maku acceptability and popularity. Note also that the small Hausa Communities in lafia, keffi, wamba and nasarawa that are sympathetic to Almakura of APC and Agabi of PDP will have to divide votes amongst them which is a huge deficit for the two candidates. whichever way you analyse the mathematics in the state, Labaran maku is highly favoured and better poised to win massively. for sure 2015 has so many shocker for the country as people perceived by the media to be underdogs will emerge victorious at the polls! please I again challenge us to verify this piece of analytical information by reaching out to theses various factors I have listed to confirm for ourselves the true situation in Nasarawa aside all these erroneous media reports!!!

I gotta say im really embarrassed that Nassarawa is listed as State of Origin on most of my documents. I find the people of that state to be basic halfwits. But thankfully i'm out of the entire country in General so i personally dont give a shlt if you people vote for people that are only gonna destroy your pathetic country just because he's your Kinsman.

That said i do want to see GMB emerge the president in that country just so i can see the look on the PDP apologists faces (and if he doesnt ofcourse i expect some crap to happen that will finally split that POS Country and then all of you from the border of Kaduna South down East can finally go to hell )

PDP is actually the master at religious politics to the extent that Sambo boasted in jigawa that they were more Islamic than APC.

Serves maku right anyway. He rode the tiger. Its only fair he gets consumed by the tiger.

Labaran Maku is a popular candidate running on a wrong and unpopular party in the North

PDP is a popular party with a wrong and unwanted candidate in Nasarawa.
