Shekarau, Stakeholders Meet Tuesday To Decide Political Future


The crisis in the Kano state Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is aggravating as a former Kano State Governor, Malam Ibrahim Shekarau and his supporters would meet today (Tuesday), in Kano to decide their political future following what they called the injustice meted out to them by the Uche Secondus led National Executive of the party, over the dissolution of the state executive.

The state executive of the party was dissolved despite a court order restraining the National Working Committee (NEC) from doing so.

The dissolution of the exco sparked off protests from the Mallam Shekarau faction who viewed the action as an attempt to wrestle power from them and hand it over to the Dr. Musa Kwankwaso faction.

Since the dissolution, rumour has heightened that Shekarau and his supporters have resolved to leave the opposition party the PDP and join the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) over the “injustice” done to them by the PDP.

“We have not left the PDP but have called for stakeholders meeting today (Tuesday) to decide our political future because of the injustice done to us by the PDP. After the meeting we will then decide where we are going,” Shekarau media aide Sule Ya’u Sule told the BridgeNews, on Tuesday morning in a telephone interview.

He lamented that despite a subsisting court order, the PDP executive went ahead to dissolve the state executive adding that the action amounted to a breach of the law.
