Governors of Sokoto and Jigawa States Alhaji Aliyu Wamakko and Alhaji Sule Lamido respectively, have stressed that the crisis rocking the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) is a test of the party’s constitution.
“We want the sanctity of the party’s constitution to be respected and allowed to work,” they stated in Sokoto.
Lamido and Wamakko are two out of the seven governors that floated a faction of the party known as “New PDP” in expression of their frustration at the happenings in the ruling party under the leadership of Alhaji Bamanga Tukur.
They also maintained their earlier resolve to remain in the PDP saying that “one cannot build a house and leave it.”
The governors spoke at the Sultan Abubakar III International Airport, Sokoto, before Gov. Lamido, who was on a two day official visit to Sokoto left for Jigawa State.
Speaking through the PDP North-West Vice chairman Ambassador Ibrahim Kazaure, the governors insisted they are fighting for the truth.
His words: “The G-7 governors are not fighting anybody but we are fighting for the truth”.
