The former senator who represented Kaduna Central senatorial district at the National Assembly and chieftain of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP),in Kaduna state, Senator Mohammed Mukhtar Aruwa has declared that he would have staged a coup ahead of 2015 elections tension if still in the military.
Speaking with journalists in his farm along Abuja- Express Way, Senator Aruwa while maintaining that civilian leaders have failed Nigeria accused the All Progressive Congress (APC) of inviting chaos in the country through its decampment drive.
Senator Aruwa, a onetime governorship candidate under All Nigeria Peoples Party (ANPP) in 2007, Kaduna state boasted that gang up against PDP will fail just like what happened in 2011 elections.
His words: “Now if we are talking about governors defecting, members of the house or House of Representatives. They are not doing this for neither Tukur nor PDP, but they are inviting chaos in the nation and it will affect every one of us, because only a country where there is no rule or law that you
can take a mandate from party ‘A’ to party ‘B’ without regard to the electorate and you expect democracy to succeed.”
He continued, “Today, if people like me were still in the Armed Force, we would have sent the politicians home long time, because they have failed the nation. No issues that the political party or body cannot resolve, unless they wants total destruction.
Let me be clear, PDP will not sit and just look at this thing. It will not just sit and look at it, so, let’s be concerned and worry about what will be the reaction, in the coming weeks and months. We should all be very concerned because there is no two ways about this” Aruwa added “So, talking about defection within a ruling party and expecting it to be a minority through the whims and caprices of its own members not the electorate; I don’t think anyone of you should even give credence or support, unless you all resolve that the military should come back.
“For example, if PDP today decided to recall each of those members, governors, senators or House of Representatives members, it requires only 5,000 signatories.
Do you think all those states that the governors said they have left; PDP will fail to get 5,000 signatories from its own members within that state? The answer is no, PDP can always get that signatories “If you want to defect, resign your elected office. But in this case they are not resigning, and do you expect PDP to just sit and fold its arm? So, this is a question for each and every one of you. It affects all of us. It’s an invitation to chaos”
