The coalition in a protest at the PDP Secretariat in Kaduna, on Friday, said the national chairman had to keep his promise and resign, following the crisis that the party had faced since former Vice-President, Atiku Abubakar, clinched the presidential candidate ticket of the party for the 2023 general election.
Spokesperson of the coalition, Mr. Shehu Isa-Dan’Inna, stated that the PDP was not a northern party, but a party for everyone, either from the north or south.
He said, “The PDP is not a Northern Peoples Democratic Party nor Southern Peoples Democratic Party, we have to be just and united, to enable us to win at various levels in the coming 2023 general elections. If the PDP’s internal crisis persist, I do not think we will win the presidential election.
“For the PDP to project transparency as it had always done, the North should not hold about three key positions in the party.”
Isa-Dan’Inna, who noted that some PDP governors and leaders particularly from southern Nigeria were insistent that for fairness, northern Nigeria should not hold both the party’s presidential ticket and national chairmanship position, said the country needed the PDP at the helms of its affairs for overall wellbeing of Nigerians.
