The national leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) yesterday waded into brewing crisis within its state chapter in Kano State by resolving to expand the caretaker committee to “accommodate all interests in line with its adherence to the principles of all inclusiveness”.
The party stated this after its National Working Committee (NWC) rose from an emergency meeting yesterday.
PDP had last week dissolved the executive of Kano State. Barely hours after the dissolution of the executive committee, reports emerged that a former governor from the state and PDP chieftain, Ibrahim Shekarau, was planning to defect from the party.
Shekarau’s defection was tied to concerns that the party was offering the party structure in the state to his successor, Senator Musa Kwankwaso, who recently returned to the party.
A statement by the national publicity secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan said, “The party also said it is open to opinions and suggestions from stakeholders in ensuring reconciliation and accommodation for all interests within its fold in the state, so as to ensure good governance to the people of the state.
“The NWC assures that no stone will be left unturned in the overall quest to bring good governance to Kano State, while putting in place machinery to hedge the infiltration of fifth columnists into the party’s fold in the state.
“The party leadership further assures of its preparedness to engage with all stakeholders in Kano provided all matters in court against the party are withdrawn, as all members work together to build a united PDP that can confront and send out incompetent and insensitive people in governance in Kano State and Nigeria at large.
“Furthermore, the NWC urges all stakeholders to always emulate our members in Benue State in the way and manner they united to resolve all issues concerning party structures of their state,” the statement said.
Earlier, Ologbondiyan, had explained that all the party leaders in the state agreed to a sharing formula which was approved by the Board of Trustees (BoT) and National Executive Committee (NEC) of the party.
