The 2023 Labour Party gubernatorial candidate in Gombe state, Keftin Amuga, has lamented the sorry state of Nigeria, stating that if General Theophilus Danjuma (retd.) had accepted to be president, the country would not have drifted.

Amuga, who doubles as Chairman of the Gombe State Middle Belt Forum, while congratulating General Danjuma on his 85th birthday on Saturday, extolled the leadership qualities of the Octogenarian, describing him as a mentor.

Amuga reflected on the journey that began with the formation of the Political Association of the People’s Solidarity Party in 1989 during the second republic and noted that the Association, though not registered, garnered acclaim for its massive electoral acceptance nationwide, acknowledging the inspiration he derived from Danjuma’s qualities.

Amuga said, “Since you piloted us in the formation of the then Political Association of the People’s Solidarity Party- PSP, which should have won the General Election at the inception of the Second Republic, had it been registered, I became inspired by your love for the Nigerian Nation irrespective of primordial cleavages,” he said.

Amuga said the inherent wisdom and courage of Danjuma had been instrumental in guiding his political endeavors, “My leader’s profound understanding and unwavering strength of character has served as a beacon of inspiration for me and countless others,” he added.

He emphasized General Danjuma’s humility, discipline, and firmness, which left an indelible mark on his perception of leadership.

“I wholeheartedly believe that had Gen. T. Y. Danjuma accepted the presidency of the Nigerian nation, the country would have been spared from the current catastrophic state it finds itself in. Nonetheless, I express unwavering divine confidence in the leader’s ability to continue leading with vigor, not only in the entire Middle Belt Region but also Nationally,” Amuga said.

According to him, Danjuma’s love for the Nigerian nation transcends primordial cleavages.

“It stands as a testament to our commitment to national unity. His resolute stand on the unity of the Nigerian Nation is unwavering and non-negotiable. Gen. T. Y. Danjuma’s steadfast dedication to combating the oppression of the less privileged and his unwavering readiness to uplift the downtrodden. These qualities exemplify his unwavering commitment to social justice and equality,” Amuga said.
