PDP Crisis’ll End Once Tukur’s Impunity, Lawlessness Stops – Baraje

Bamanga-Vs-Baraje-500x283Chairman of the New Peoples Democratic Party (nPDP), Alhaji Kawu Baraje has declared that more than five PDP governors would soon join the fold of the splinter faction.

Baraje gave the indication during an interview with newsmen in Ilorin, Kwara State shortly after casting his vote at his Baboko ward in Saturday’s local government election in the state.

He further explained that the crisis rocking the ruling party would end only when the Bamanga Tukur-led National Working Committee, NWC, of the PDP stopped the “impunity” being perpetrated in the party.

On plans to receive more governors into the fold, he said, “Yes, we are only telling you five. They may be more than five. Don’t be in a hurry”.

He added, “Simple, there is an end once there is stoppage to impunity, lawlessness, disorderliness and then whims and caprices being perpetrated by the so-called leadership of Bamanga Tukur.

“The powers that be will answer that question. I’ve stood up as demanded by Nigerians and on behalf of the downtrodden and on behalf of the masses of the generality of the PDP to say that impunity is not part of PDP and you are living witnesses that Nigerians are behind me”.

Meanwhile, the leadership of the New PDP will meet today at the Sokoto Governor’s Lodge in Asokoro, Abuja by 8pm.

The meeting is expected to deliberate on the recent defeats the faction has suffered in the courts in recent weeks, the political witch-hunt of its members using the Federal Capital Territory Administration, FCTA, the G-7 governors’ rescheduled meeting with President Goodluck Jonathan among others.
