Crisis has hit the Zamfara State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP).
The state ruling party has been factionalised due to alleged irregularities observed by a waring group known as the True Peoples Democratic Party(PDP)
Speaking on the development, the chairman of the faction, Hon. Bilyaminu Aliyu Badarawa said the fractionalization was informed by the irregularities in the party.
Acccording to him, deterioration of the party under the factional chairman, Alhaji Tukur Danfulani and the way he handled the party is not good.
Addressing in Fussy, Badarawa explained that the leadership of the party in the state was not respect the opinions of the members, elders and other patrons of the party.
He boasted that that the faction has established its exco members in the state, Local Government, 147 wards and 2516 polling units in the state.
“We have suffered to ensure that PDP excel in the state since inception, while some of the present leaders of the party were in the other political parties but unfortunately we were being neglected and uncared for.
He accused Tukur of not having time for party affairs as he is always travelling and when in town is always at the Government House instead of at the party secretariat.
He said further that “Among our grievances was his untimely and unpopular decision to suspend the state PDP publicity secretary, Alhaji Farouq Umar Shettima Rijiya which indicates vividly lack of focus and capacity to lead the party. By expressing his opinion aimed at promoting the party, the publicity secretary has committed a grievous offence against them ”
“Due to the aforementioned, we resolve to form the new faction named “True PDP” to salvage the PDP and rescue it from total collapse”
But reacting, the state secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Hon. Ibrahim Umar Dangaladima said the party had no idea of any faction in the party.
