Congresses’ ll resolve internal crises in Katsina PDP — Atiku


The former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, says the forthcoming party congresses will resolve the lingering internal crises in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Katsina State.

Fielding questions from newsmen on Saturday in Katsina, Abubakar said that he was in the state to condole with the Emir of Katsina, Alhaji abdulmumini Kabir-Usman, over the death of his son, Abdullah Abdulmumini.

“I also condoled with the family of the former Governor of the defunct Kaduna State, late Alhaji Lawal Kaita, over the death of his widow, Hajiya Yelwa Lawal-kaita,” he said.

Atiku also visited the former President Muhammadu Buhari in his Daura country home, after which, he condoled with the family of late Alhaji Sade, father to the Managing Director, NNPC Trading Limited, Lawal Dade.

He then visited the Emir of Daura, Alhaji Umar Farouq and condoled with him over Sade’s demise.
On the internal crises that had divided the party into two factions, Atiku said: “There will soon be congresses, so, people will elect whom they want to be their party leaders.”

It would be recalled that a group called ‘PDP major stakeholders’ and the state caretaker committee were at loggerhead over the sales of congress forms.

While the group claimed that they were denied purchase of the forms, the state caretaker committee remained silent on the issue in spite of several efforts to hear from them on the allegation.
