The decision to dissolve the state executives of the Yobe chapter of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is a laudable step that will reposition the party to unseat the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, in 2015, a former Minister of Police Affairs, Alhaji Adamu Maina Waziri, has said.
He made this known in a chat with reporters yesterday at his residence in Abuja.
According to Waziri, the immediate past chairman of the PDP, Alhaji Bamanga Tukur made a lot of mistakes during his aborted tenure and supported such illegality that destabilized the party in the state and almost consumed the party nationwide.
“There was no congress as stipulated by the party’s constitution to elect leadership at the ward, LGA and state level when congresses were held nationwide in 2012. There was serious insecurity at that time In Yobe and Borno States. Then the PDP conducted congresses in other states but postponed in both states.
“INEC wrote to the PDP leadership from Kawu Baraje to Bamanga Tukur, reminding them that nine states in the country had flawed leadership. The party under Tukur in its selective justice decided to re-conduct national convention but refused to heed INEC’s report”, he said.
The former minister was of the hope that with internal democracy set to be established in Yobe, the political equation in the state will change next year.
“In doing so, the party must take hold of Yobe by producing an all acceptable exco that will stir the party in the 2015 elections, by restoring internal democracy and complying with the game changer Adamu Mu’azu’s all-inclusive philosophy”, he added.
