A chieftain of People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Kaduna State, Alhaji Adamu Musa Lere, has alleged that Sokoto state Governor, Rt Hon Aminu Waziri Tambuwal, who is nursing a presidential ambition is trying to create a division in the part’s north-west zone in order to protect his interest and ambition in the forthcoming 2023 general Elections.
This is coming at a time when the party is preparing to hold its North- west zonal congress on saturday, 10th April, 2021 in Kaduna.
According to Mr Lere, a consensus was reached at the party’s northwest zonal caucus meeting to cede the National Vice chairman Northwest, National Woman leader northwest, Ex-officio national and zonal to kano state.
Lere accused that Tambuwal, who was absent at the meeting, is deviating from the agreement by purchasing a nomination form for the office of the National Zonal Vice chairman for a party cheiftain in Kano state, which he alleged is aimed at causing divison among the party’s ranks in the Northwest.
The party chieftain appealed to the party’s leadership to nip the budding conflict in order to prevent a repeatation of what caused the party a defeat in the last general elections.
He, however, warned that the party should not risk creating artificial crisis in kano, which has the largest voting population,
“Creating crisis in kano political structure will certainly have contagious effect in the North-western region because of the fact that kano is the heartbeat of the entire northern politics”, he said
