Welcome to Wadata Plaza, PDP headquarter, an Amphitheater of Dreams for PDP chairmen. For PDP chairmen the seat remains the most unsettled and uncertain. Wadata Plaza remains a nightmare for it’s would be occupants.
Since the formation of PDP in 1998, the seat has become a nightmare, the list of chairmen that has occupied the seat were either booted out or disgraced with some even being arraign for embezzlement and fraud. Except it’s first chairman, Chief Solomon Lar and Chief Audu Ogbeh, subsequent chairmen that follows ended up being disgraced out of the PDP chairman seat.
The impending exit of Chairman Bamanga Tukur is another endless uncertainties that has beclouded PDP since it’s formation and later hijacked by money bags, neophytes, and corrupt minded politicians is also a manifestation of PPDP lacked of internal democracy mechanism, how can constant changing of it’s chairman translate into good governance, with PDP at the helm of Nigeria affairs?
Wadata Plaza, PDP headquarter remains a slippery place. The seat is bedeviled with corruption, ineptitude and greed. Those who tasted the bitter pill at Wadata Plaza, includes; Okwesilieze Nwodo, Barnabas Gemade, Dr Haliru Mohammed, Vincent Ogbuluafor and the out-going chairman, Bamanga
Tukur. According to sources Bamanga Tukur did not actually won the PDP primaries, the seat ought have been occupied by Alhaji Sanni Toro, it was learn President Goodluck Jonathan has to pressurized Alhaji Sanni Toro to step down for Alhaji Bamanga Tukur and this was later felt by the uneasy calm that pervades Alhaji Bamanga Tukur’s reign as PDP chairman, again the manifestations of PDP lacked of internal democracy mechanism.
Among the list of PDP chairmen, Chief Audu Ogbeh remains the fiercest and blunt having confronted the Owu born prince, Chief OIusegun Obasanjo [eru o bodo] with ideas on how best to govern, the Owu born prince was dumbfounded being challenge, this led to Chief Audu Ogbeh’s unceremonious resignation as PDP chairman.
The office has become slippery, consuming it’s occupants in fist of political maneuverings, bicker-rings and power play. Wadata Plaza, PDP headquarter is an Amphitheater of Dreams for it’s would be occupants, so comical that it’s occupant begin to plan for his exit mmediately he takes charge.
Wadata Plaza: Amphitheater Of Dreams!
