FORMER NIGERIAN AMBASSADOR “AHMED MUSA IBETO” TO SOUTH AFRICA LOST PDP GOVERNORSHIP TICKET

FORMER NIGERIAN AMBASSADOR “AHMED MUSA IBETO” TO SOUTH AFRICA LOST PDP GOVERNORSHIP TICKET

In Minna, PDP governorship candidate in the 2015 general election in Niger, Umar Nasko, re-emerged the winner of the party’s primary for the 2019 general election.

He beat former Nigeria envoy to South Africa, Ahmed Ibeto, and four others in a well organized and peaceful primary attended by 2,809 party delegates from the 25 local government areas across the state.

Others who contested the primary with him were Umar Dogonkoli, Hannafi Sudan and Aminu Baka.

Ambassador Ahmed Musa Ibeto who described his sojourn to the All Progressive Congress in 2015 as an act of God precipitated by human conducts. He said the mass exodus into the All Progressive Congress by many PDP members on the eve of the 2015 general elections and immediately afterward has since turned out a big, painful lesson for all those who flocked into the APC.

“Our sojourn to APC as painful as it has been is a huge lesson on how not to do things”. I am back in the PDP, it is for good and I won’t leave it” he added.

Ambassador Ibeto noted that in politics, any government that is irresponsive to the yearnings of its people soon becomes irresponsible.

He said the continuous outcries by the vast majority of citizens over hardship, insecurity and general maladministration have exposed the weaknesses of the governing All Progressive Congress as a political party that has refused to learn the ropes and is ill-prepared for governance and the task of forging the country forward.

Ambassador Ibeto had last July ditched the APC, resigned from his ambassadorial appointment as Nigeria’s envoy to South Africa and returned to the PDP in what political observers described as a rare, selfless and daring political decision.
