Fearing more defections of aggrieved members, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has resolved to expand the Kano State Caretaker committee to accommodate all interest groups.

The National Working Committee (NWC) of the party took the action in line with its adherence to the principles of all-inclusiveness.

The National Publicity Secretary of the party, Mr. Kola Ologbondiyan, on Tuesday in Abuja said the party was also open to opinions and suggestions from stakeholders.

This according to Ologbondiyan is to allow ensure reconciliation and accommodation for all interests within its fold in the state, so as to ensure good governance to the people of the state.

Ologbondiyan said no stone would be left unturned in the overall quest to bring good governance to Kano state, while putting in place machinery to hedge the infiltration of fifth columnists into the party’s fold in the state.

“The party leadership further assures of its preparedness to engage with all stakeholders in Kano provided all matters in court against the party are withdrawn, as all members work together to build a united PDP that can confront and send out APC governance in Kano state and Nigeria at large.

“Furthermore, the NWC urges all stakeholders to always emulate our members in Benue state in the way and manner they united to resolve all issues concerning party structures of their state.”

Reports say that the state chapter of the party had been torn apart by intrigues and power struggle.

It was reported on Tuesday that a notable member of the party in the state was a former governor and minister has dumped the party because of power struggle with a member who recently joined the party. (NAN)
