Polls fallout: PDP sacks Katsina State exco

The National Working Committee, NWC, of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has approved the dissolution of Katsina State Executive Committee of the party. 

This was contained in a statement signed by the party’s National Publicity Secretary, Debo Ologunagba, in Abuja yesterday. 

The decision of the NWC appears to be a direct fallout of the internal squabbles within the state chapter of the party which party watchers say was largely responsible for the party’s defeat in the just concluded governorship and State Assembly elections in the state. 

The statement read:  “After extensive deliberation on issues relating to the Katsina State Chapter of our great Party, the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, the National Working Committee, NWC, on behalf of the National Executive Committee, NEC, hereby approves the dissolution of the PDP Katsina State Executive Committee with immediate effect.

The decision of the NWC is pursuant to Sections 29(2)(b) and 31(2)(e) of the Constitution of the PDP (as amended in 2017).

“The PDP charges all leaders, critical stakeholders and teeming members of our Party in Katsina State to remain united and focused on the task ahead.”
