CUPP members are 419ners, fraudsters- Sen. Adamu

CUPP members are 419ners, fraudsters- Sen. Adamu

Senator Abdullahi Adamu, representing Nasarawa West Senatorial zone, has described the alliance of 40 political parties as Coalition of United Political Parties (CUPP) as composition of ‘419ners’.

Adamu, former governor of Nasarawa State stated this while fielding questions from journalists at the APC National Secretariat in Abuja.

Senator Abdullahi, who was at the secretariat to pay a courtesy visit to the APC National Chairman, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, argued that the whole confusion about the Reformed APC was to create crisis to justify the exit of certain principal officers of the National Assembly from the party.

He said, “I am at the APC headquarters on a courtesy visit to our new chairman. New improved Comrade Oshiomhole, who I have very useful discussion with and I could not have gone out with a better impression of the depth of his understanding of the problems of the APC and the passion that he is coming with to do what with the party.

“Because God is a God of all times, I know that every situation has a leadership that is unique to it. From what I have seen and heard from him, he is the man of the moment to provide the leadership required to win the 2019 general elections.

“He has given that understanding that there is lots of work to be done but he remains absolutely committed to make a success of his mission as chairman of our great party. We will give him maximum possible support from the National Assembly where I operate from to the streets of Nigeria and the wards, constituencies so that APC will emerge victorious in the 2019 general elections.

“I told you when I spoke on the nPDP recently here that the so called nPDP is fake. I described them as people who have got felonies that they hiding from and want to use their positions in the party and national assembly as a facade, as a veil to hide from the felonies they have committed.

“The whole thing they are fighting for is not so much service to Nigeria but service to their interest and I did tell you that they are just staying in the APC to cause maximum possible damage. I have been proven right.

“I told you all the noise about wanting to stay and work for the family of the APC but they are just trying to create the kind of impression that in APC they had no deal, nobody in the old PDP that became the new PDP and went into the accord with the PDP in 2013, nobody stood beneficiary of that more than the current Senate President Bukola Saraki.

“He has benefited more than any single new PDP person and he seems to be the arrow head of this resistance now or betrayal the party elected as national assembly. I thank God I have lived to witness what I said come to pass. Its left for you now to follow up to know who was telling the truth or lying.

“They did not deserve the attention they wanted because it’s not founded in realism, it’s not founded in truth, it’s not founded on loyalty or patriotism to the country,” he noted.

Asked his impression about the coalition of the 39 political parties and whether they pose any threat to the ruling party, he said: “The issue of threat doesn’t arise. I don’t feel it in my body and I have been in politics if I am modest, maybe 40 years.”

“I have contested election, I have never lost any election. I have operated at the local government level, the National Assembly level, I have been governor in this country, I have been secretary of the board of trustees of the PDP when it was PDP and I am a second term senator today.

“I think without being immodest, I have seen enough Nigerian politics thus far and from what we have seen so far, the indication is that we are dealing with 419ners. None of them will stand up to say I was a senator, I was in the House of Representatives or I was this today separating from his base, all politics is local. How many of them can go to their constituency and say or do what they are doing in Abuja?

“I don’t call them Abuja politicians because they don’t deserve that. They are just 419ners these are guys who just go from place to place.

“The truth is that if Saraki and Ekweremadu and the rest of them, leaders today in the National Assembly genuinely feel aggrieved and genuinely want to go out, let them go out. You don’t push pons in the game of chess and expect to win, you have to move the major actors, the kings, the knights, the bishops.

“But these ones have feats of play, unfortunately they don’t threaten anybody here and as far as I am concerned, we don’t see them as well as what they called Reformed APCs. I think they are rejects.

“Why do I say so, we are witnesses to the fact that we held a national convention. We started from the unit level, that’s where the ballot boxes are, to ward, local government, zonal to state level and we had a convention. There was no side statement from anybody.

“Three weeks after convention we are hearing some riffraffs saying that they have form something called R-APC. You don’t just wake up and form a party or coalition. What is happening is that those their principals who are in the National Assembly do not want to risk making a declaration so that they do not lose their seats and so they want to justify there is a split in the APC. That is what they are trying to do. No more no less. Before you see monkey, monkey must have seen you because it is on top tree.”
