Sharing is caring!

The Embattled PDP National Chairman, Bamanga Tukur has promised that the party would deal with the seven factional PDP governors at the appropriate time. Tukur told journalists at the Eagle Square, that the governors were planning to defect to another party.

A visibly angry and rattled Tukur said, “The PDP does not recognise any parallel party. Those who staged the walkout are all self-seeking and treacherous individuals pursuing neither regional nor religious agenda except their own agenda, except their own personal interest. He further said “Their attempt to create parallel party is illegal, unlawful as there are no crises within the PDP whatsoever.

When probed further and what he think is responsible for the walk out the embattled chairman said “They were all active participants in the setting up of this convention. And many of them were with the President and rode with him to the convention venue and joined them in the salutation of all the delegates including their state delegates.”

“The PDP is studying the situation as it unfolds and will deal decisively as the situation warrants. “It is obvious that they are creating crisis where there is none to give the impression that the party is divided. This in their thinking will allow them persuade loyal members of the National Assembly to cross carpet with them. We will resist this.”

 Tukur’s led PDP were rattled by the walk-out and the announcement of Alhaji Abubakar Baraje and Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola as National Chairman and Secretary respectively under the guidance of Former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar.

 Abdufatah Ahmed of Kwara, Muazu Aliyu of Niger, Musa Kwankwaso of Kano, Sule Lamido of Jigawa and Aliyu Wamakko of Sokoto States walked out of the Eagle Square, venue of the party’s convention in Abuja. They were later joined by Governors Murtala Nyako of Adamawa and Chibuike Amaechi of Rivers States, who were barred from attending the convention due to suspension.

Following the development, feelers from grapevine said that the Board Of Trustees (BOT) Chairman of the embattled PDP, Chief Tony Anenih has summoned an emergency meeting of the PDP NEC, NWC, Governors and NASS for today (Sunday) in Abuja to discuss unfolding events within the party
