NASARAWA STATE – Senator Solomon Ewuga of Nasarawa state has debunked speculations making rounds that he has dumped the PDP for APC, while giving assurance that he still remains a bonafide member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
A statement to this effect was signed by his media consultant, Danjuma Joseph, a copy of which was made available to newsmen on Sunday at Akun, Nasarawa Eggon local government area of Nasarawa state.
Senator Ewuga, who is former deputy governor of the state and onetime minister of state for FCT, urged his supporters to disregard speculations that he had dumped the PDP or defected to another political party.
According to the statement, “the rumour is a figment of the imagination of the peddlers,” and reassured that he is still in the PDP.
The statement observed that, in the past few days, Senator Solomon Ewuga has been inundated with calls from friends and political associates seeking clarification on the rumours of his ‘departure’ from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
“One wonders how Senator Ewuga could be expected to quit a house he jointly built with other patriots since 1999.”
The statement further explains that, “it is true that enormous pressure was brought to bear on Senator Ewuga to move to another party because of the glaring injustice meted out on him during the recent PDP primaries.
“Senator Ewuga wishes to maintain his earlier stand, that, he would not defect at this critical period that his party, PDP, needs his attention and support.
According to the statement, “For those, who know Senator Ewuga very well over the years of his struggles, are usually not about his own person but equity, justice and fairness for all, especially the downtrodden masses of Nasarawa state.”
