A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Plateau, Hon. Felix Jonah has accused the party’s presidential campaign organisation, led by Governor Aminu Waziri Tambuwal of Sokoto, of running an ethnic and religious agenda.
Hon. Jonah, who spoke exclusively with this newspaper on Tuesday, said the Director of Field Operation, Hon. Umar Bature, who like campaign director general Tambuwal is a Muslim from Sokoto, northwestern Nigeria, is said to be most culpable in undermining campaign officials from other parts of the country.

To buttress his allegation, the party faithful cited how the National Woman Leader, Prof. Stella Effah-Attoe from Cross River, has been frustrated with her programmes and proposals from women mobilisation turned down.
Hon. Jonah said similar fate has befallen other non-Muslim party chieftains and campaign operatives as there were “clear one-sided budget approvals.”
“For example, just look at the Advance Team, it is populated with northerners,” he said.
Meanwhile, another campaign manager who spoke under anonymity said the party’s presidential candidates need to urgently look into the running of the campaign before matters degenerate further.
The source said most Director Generals such as Operations, Administration and Research and Strategy, have been rendered redundant in the campaign organisation.
