The leadership crisis rocking the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) seems not to be abating as the 37 States’ chairmen and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) have joined forces with the 23 governors, insisting that Mijinjiwa Kaugama is still the state chairman of the party in Adamawa State.
Also, the national secretariat of PDP has described the party’s sweeping victory in the last Saturday’s Kano state Assembly bye elections as a sign that the people still strongly believe in the PDP despite the much talked about alliance by opposition parties.
Twenty three governors of the party had two weeks ago at a meeting presided over by Governor Chibuike Amaechi of Rivers state recognized the Kaugama led PDP state. The PDP governors also said that they are supporting the resolution of the ten members of the National Working Committee (NWC) that dissolved the Caretaker Committee in the state led by Ambassador Umar Damagum.
