Congresses, invitation to Atiku: Adamawa pdp in fresh crisis

By Umar Yusuf

YOLA—Fresh crisis has engulfed Adamawa State chapter of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, as the National Caretaker Committee, NWC, of the party issued two different letters to factional chairman of the party over the conduct of non-elective ward, local and state chapters of the party.

The National Organising Secretary of the party in the latest letter, denied authorising Alhaji Abdulrahman Bobboi, a factional Chairman, to conduct state and ward congresses.

Vanguard gathered that Abdulrahman Bobboi’s faction’s invitation of former Vice President, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, back to PDP is not going down well with the party top shots.

Another factional Chairman of the party, Chief Joel Madaki, displaying a new letter signed by Abdul Ahmed Ningi, addressed to Alhaji Bobboi, indicated that the NWC of the party has not instructed anybody to conduct the said congresses that would lead to the special non-elective National Convention.

According to the letter, “neither you nor any party member in the state chapter is authorised to conduct such congresses. This instruction supersedes the earlier one in the letter quoted above.”

Madaki told the party’s supporters at a meeting in Yola that his tenure as the state chairman of the party came to an end January and that there were no congresses to elect new executives of the party.

The party’s state Organising Secretary, Abdullah Prambe, said the only way normalcy can return to PDP in the state was through new congresses.

However, in a swift reaction to Chief Madaki’s statement, Abdulrahman Bobboi distanced himself from the letter, saying if the letter was meant for him, it should have been sent directly to him and not through a factional chairman.
