Ishaku plans fake protests, as plot to replace him thickens

Here is The Peoples Democratic Party PDP governorship candidate in Taraba Darius Dickson Ishaku(pictured above) is reportedly battling to retain the party's ticket over National leadership of the party plans to change him due to his unpopularity and unacceptance by voters in the state.

Darius however has concluded plans to deceives the party's leadership by stage managing a series of protests at the PDP National Headquarters in Abuja.

The plan is been carried by the Chief of Staff to the state acting governor, Aminu Jika who has been recruiting and contacting various youths and interest groups both in Abuja and Taraba for the protests scheduled to hold Saturday or next week.

The main aim of the protests is to deceive President Goodluck Jonathan: the PDP leadership and the world that imposed Darius is  accepted by the people of the state, Ahmend Isa, a member PDP in Taraba state said.

Isa in a statement warns the PDP national leadership not to be deceived by hired protesters.

"Jika has been running around using state funds to ensure PDP and Jonathan losses Taraba state, our people have severally rejected Ishaku, the PDP had sent an underground team to ascertain whether or not he is popular, but the reverse is the case. And should we go ahead with him President Jonathan and PDP will lose Taraba to the opposition party.

"We need a popular candidate that would emerge through a primary as stipulated by the electoral laws, no primary was held by the duly elected delegates. Other aspirants have gone to court to challenge him.
"Ishaku is scared of primary election because he knowns he's not on ground, he was never a PDP member in Taraba state and would stop at nothing to ensure he did not face a credible primary with other aspirants.
"We hope its not too late for the PDP to do the needful, that is to correct the illegality, an illegality would always remain an illegality, a stage managed protest can never authentic it," Isa said.

The National Leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party PDP had earlier declared that it's yet to have a governorship candidate in Taraba State .

Ishaku was selected in Abuja by some stakeholders and Taraba born Elder Statesman, Gen. TY Danjuma.
