Former National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic party Bamanga Tukur has urged the leadership and members of major political parties in the country to eschew bitterness and rancour as they engage in internal maneuvering for power, to ensure the protection of the nation’s democracy.
In a statement by his Special Adviser on Media, Oliver Okpala,
Bamanga Tukur says he decided to make this intervention because of the current bad blood, rancorous disunity and widening cracks in the major parties and main opposition, PDP.
It expresses worry that if this current spate of disunity and acrimony in parties continue, the nation’s democracy would be greatly endangered.
The statement further stresses that Democracy only thrives when there is peace, stability and proper functioning of internal conflict resolution mechanisms of political parties.
