The National Working Committee, NWC, of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has resolved to expand the Kano State Caretaker Committee to accommodate all interests, in line with its adherence to the principles of all-inclusiveness.
This came a few hours after the former Governor of the State and Presidential Aspirant, Ibrahim Shekarau, decamped from the party, over the disbandment of the State Executives, and setting up of a Caretaker Committee, allegedly loyal to his arch rival, Senator Rabiu Kwankwaso.
In a statement signed by the PDP National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, on Tuesday, which was sent to Post-Nigeria, the party revealed that 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 statement reads: “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 statement added: “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of its preparedness to engage with all Stakeholders in Kano, provided all matters in court against the party are withdrawn, as all members work together to build a united PDP, that can confront and send out incompetent and insensitive people in governance in Kano State, and Nigeria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.”
