Crisis has weakened PDP, Kwankwaso decries
Former governor of Kano state, Rabiu Kwankwaso has decried that the crisis rocking the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has weakened it as an opposition.
This was stated on Friday by the PDP chieftain when he featured in an interview with BBC Hausa.
Kwankwaso said the crisis is “heightened by those who are after leadership” of the party.
“Now the strength of the party has reduced and in the end what will happen is that it will tear us apart,” he said.
You see the result will not help us since we do not have a president and we do not have many governors.
“People like me have nothing to do with the crisis. I’m after what will bring development to people; every good leader should focus on that.
“The party chairman has only one month left. I think it’s better to wait so that we can emerge stronger.
“But the crisis is heightened by those who are after leadership. They are not doing it for the betterment of their people.”
The opposition party has lost several key members to the All Progressives Congress (APC) as a result of its internal crisis.
Uche Secondus, the embattled national chairman of the PDP, has been under increased pressure to resign from office.
He was suspended after a high court in Rivers state granted an interim order restraining him from parading himself as the national chairman of the party.
Subsequently, the party’s national working committee (NWC) named Akinwonmi, the national deputy chairman (south), as the acting chairman.
