Crisis In PDP Kano As Committee Disowns Lamido’s Factional Leader
There is crisis in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Kano state after the Rabi’u Suleiman Bichi-led Kano state Caretaker Committee of the party rejected the newly emerged Administrative Committee of the party led by Mahammina Bako-Lamido.
Bichi’s leadership was disowned and rejected by the Mahammina Bako-Lamido faction.
YANS gathered that Bichi in a statement described his rivals as, “disgruntled party members whose sole aim is to improve APC chances to win the forthcoming January 25, 2020 rerun elections in the state.”
According to him, “for the records, however, we want to remind our party members and, indeed, the general public to note that this has been the antics of this group and their sponsors.”
“For instance, they took the Committee and the National Leadership of our great party to courts on four different occasions and on each of those occasions, the courts gave judgments in our favour.
“They pledged their allegiance to the state APC-led government on the eve of the 2019 general elections. It is therefore widely known that the group voted for APC against our party at both the national and state elections.”
Bichi also said: “based on their actions and antecedents, they were compensated for a job weldone with juicy positions by the APC government which gave them. commissionership and Managing Director slots.
“We, therefore, view their action as a deliberate attempt to scatter the chances of our great party in the forthcoming rerun elections in the state.
“We, therefore, urge all our law-abiding members to remain calm and continue to work hard with our candidates at the Local Government Areas where these elections are going to be held.”
