The gubernatorial candidate of the People Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2019 election, and former Nigeria’s Ambassador to Romania and Bulgaria, Ambassador Umaru Damagum, has said he did not file any suit against the removal of Governor Mai Mala Buni.
Damagum stated this while speaking with journalists in Damaturu on Friday, adding that he came to know about the suit while watching the 8 pm news on Thursday night.
He stated that he did not contact or inform any lawyer to institute a case on his behalf on the matter in question.
Damagun noted that he suspects those behind the suit are some angry All Progressives Congress (APC) members who followed the last ward congress and PDP elements to unsettle Gov. Buni.
“I think some members of my party, the PDP were not happy with the success of the last state congress that we did in the State.
“For your information, there is a court case at the Damaturu High Court, and I suspect it’s a ploy to frustrate that case.
” I also think that this may be coming from the APC members themselves looking at the gang up against Gov. Buni in the part,” Amb. Damagum explained.
The PDP chieftain added that he had asked his lawyer to investigate anyone behind the suit and communicate with him.
According to him: “It’s laughable that those who instituted that case are not aware that my running mate has since decamped to APC”.
