The leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP in Kano State under Mas’ud Doguwa-led faction decamped to the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC.
Sen. Mas’ud Jibrin El-Doguwa made the pronouncement in a press conference organised in Kano.
Sen. Doguwa said they leaved in all thier entirety to PDP and decamp to APC under the able leadership of Governor Ganduje, which he said this is most painful decision to take and only solution in order to move Kano forward.
“PDP in Kano are in complete disarray and gripping in neck-deep turmoil, and we are ready to join the peaceful bandwagon who are ready to move Kano forward” Doguwa insisted.
He added that, in view of what is transpiring in Kano political arena, we decided to follow Governor Ganduje based on his cheerful disposition and good relationship with others irrespective of political or religious inclination.
Mas’ud El-Doguwa added that it is apparently clear that PDP under Secondus iron-fist is seriously under threat of extinction based on the fact he fails to unite the party, due to his selfish interest and lopsided treatment to members.
“The party underestimate the power of Mallam Shekarau when he was in PDP, Kwankwaso joined the party later and dislodged Shekarau, and the party national party done nothing to correct the anomalies, Shekarau and his members rejoin APC, and this is what transpired at the end. PDP nosedive terribly”
However, he added that, since then no one made any move worthy to call him to order with a view to salvage the party which is rolling towards the edge of the cliff.
“There had never been anytime When Kwankwaso or Abba Kabir call or even came personally seeking for suggestions to move the party forward, but everything goes to no avail” El-Doguwa emphasized.
Sen. Doguwa noted that the outcome of the last February’s election have proves us right, PDP have failed woefully, and we don’t want be part of the PDP failure in Kano and the nation, that’s why we resolved to scampered for our luggage and depart to APC as early as possible to avoid trading accusations and exchanging accusing fingers.
It can be recalled that the group has been in a loggerhead with the Kwankwaso led faction of the PDP since the defection of the former Kano state governor Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso to the PDP from APC last year.
In another development A Federal High Court in Kano on Monday nullified Peoples’ Democratic Party Governorship Candidacy for not conducting Primaries.
The court presided by Justice Ambrose Lewis ruled that the purported nomination of Abba Kabir as Governorship Candidate of the Peoples’s Democratic Party PDP is revalidated.
Counsel to the Plantiff, Kabiru Usman says the PDP would have to provide another Governorship Candidate before the coming Polls.
In his respond , Peoples’ Democratic Party Counsel, Bashir Yusuf says the verdict does not affect Abba Kabir as a Candidate but the PDP as a party.
According to him, the PDP will obey court order, while a PDP gubernatorial aspirant, Ali Amin-little, had approached the court, challenging the process that led to emergence of Abba Kabir Yusuf as PDP gubernatorial candidate in Kano
