PDP Removes Atiku’s Name From List Delegates for the Forthcoming Mini Convention
The Peoples Democratic Party has really proved to be one party that won’t stay away from trouble. Just when you think the party’s quest of reconciling all aggrieved members will be something to look forward to, it comes up another decision that further set members and the party afar.
The latest of what the PDP has done is the removal of the name of former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar from the list of persons who are to serve as delegates in the forthcoming mini national convention of the party.
because his name is not on the list of delegates submitted to the party from his home state, Adamawa.
The list signed by the Adamawa state chairman of the party, Mr. Joel Madaki, an ally of the National Chairman of the PDP, Dr. Bamanga Tukur, also contained the name of Governor Murtala Nyako of Adamawa State, a man who does not belong to the Madaki faction.
The party has tentatively slated August 20 for the special mini convention.
Former Information Minister and Chairman PDP Convention Planning Committee, Prof. Jerry Gana, had said only those that voted at the 2012 convention, where the members of the party’s National Working Committee were elected, would vote at the mini convention.
The report of INEC on the convention that faulted the emergence some of the party officials at the convention, compelled 20 of them to resign recently. The party’s National Executive Committee accepted their resignation at its June meeting.
A list of the March 20, delegates’ list was signed by Kaugama Mijijinwa as the Adamawa State chairman. However, the fresh list by Madaki faction did also not contain the name of Mijijinwa as a delegate.
