Unease in Jigawa PDP over anti-party allegations

Wed May 20th, 2020 - Abuja (FCT)

A recent protest staged by a group identified as Northwest PDP Concerned Youth Forum at the Wadata House, National Headquarters of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) against the party’s National Vice Chairman in the zone, Senator Ibrahim Musa Kazaure, has continued to raise dust within the party. The group, said to have represented the party’s interest across the Northwestern states, accused Senator Kazaure of anti-party activities and demanded his removal.

The youths, led by one Abubakar A. Rafindadi, who blamed Senator Kazuare for the party’s misfortune in the last general elections, especially in Jigawa state, expressed the belief that the vice chairman was working with the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) to sabotage the chances of PDP.

Besides the orchestrated Abuja protest, there are unsettled matters rattling the ranks of two heavyweight politicians in Jigawa State, which first erupted when the party started witnessing strange disintegration soon after it lost the 2015 general elections at the federal and state levels.
