PDP Splits in Zamfara
A faction led by Alhaji Bilyaminu Badarawa has emerged within the Zamfara State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP),
The faction which called itself True Peoples Democratic Party announced on Friday that it has expelled the state party chairman, Alhaji Tukur Danfulani, and his executive members.
The state PDP Secretary, Alhaji Ibrahim Umar, has however feigned ignorance of the new faction, saying he was not aware of it.
While addressing a press conference in Gusau on Friday, Badarawa lamented that PDP in the state has lost focus and has become undemocratic, hence the need for a new faction.
He said “It becomes imperative to form the True PDP in order to salvage the Peoples Democratic Party in Zamfara State from sinking and deterioration under its factional chairman, Alhaji Tukur Danfulani.
“The PDP leadership in Zamfara State is not respecting the opinions of its members, elders and other patrons, which led it to lose its glory in the state.
“The leadership’s selective justice and ‘I don’t care’ attitude to the plight of its members is another reason we decided to create a faction within the party.”
He declared: “As from today, April 30, 2021, I, as the coordinator, PDP Grassroots Mobilisation, Zamfara State, and the new chairman of the True PDP Zamfara State, hereby announce that Alhaji Tukur Danfulani and his executive members have been expelled from the party.”
