Five governorship aspirants under the platform of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP in Kaduna State have passed a no-confidence vote in the party’s leadership, headed by a onetime Minister of Aviation, Hassan Hyet.
Consequently, the aggrieved aspirants have therefore called on the National leadership to take over affairs of the party in the state.
At a news briefing in Kaduna by their Spokesman, Ahmed Maiyaki said “In view of the above, the Forum humbly requests the National leadership of our great party to take full charge of the Party’s activities in Kaduna State in order to rescue the situation and restore the confidence of majority of members and loyalists in the State once more,”.
According to the spokeman, “The aspirants comprising Senator Suleiman Othman Hunkuyi, Mohammed Sani Sidi, Mukhtar Ramalan Yero, Muhammed Sani Bello and Shuaibu Idris Mikati met and took unanimous decision to intimate the National leadership of the party with some of the disturbing activities including tampering with the delegates list.
Maiyaki explained that, prior to and after losing the 2015 general elections, the PDP has never been a more cherished bride with the prospects of winning almost all the elective posts in Kaduna State than now with more people willing to join and participate actively in rescuing the state and the Nation at large.
The aspirants, Maiyaki noted, condemned strongly the activities of the Kaduna State Chairman of the Party, Felix Hassan Hyet, who had openly attached himself to one of the gubernatorial aspirants saying, “this is against the norm and the principle of fair play”.
“He has, without a sense of decorum, been openly working against the aspirations of the other gubernatorial aspirants in favour of his anointed candidate because he has been promised the position of a running mate,” he said.
