… Denies Kwankwaso’s defection to PDP
The new Peoples Democratic Party (nPDP) bloc of the All Progressives Congress (APC), will soon adopt a new name. The leader of the group, Alh Abubakar Kawu Baraje disclosed this while reacting to the purported defection of former governor of Kano state, Senator Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Baraje who described the purported defection of Kwamkwaso to the PDP as a fallacy and figment of the imagination of the author of the report, said membership of nPDP remains intact.
He maintained that the group will make public its position about the continued membership of APC public between today (Thursday) and tomorrow.
He said the former Kano state governor played active roles in all the decisions of nPDP and that he would continue to play such roles as a key leader of the group.
“We are all still in APC but the nPDP will come up with a lot of changes. nPDP is likely to change its name as a splinter group from APC,” said Baraje.
Baraje had on Monday announced that his group will make its positions regarding its relationship with the APC known this week.
He had disclosed that before the end of this week, members of the group would have concluded their consultations and come out with their stand on all what they stand for.
He emphasised that whatever decision they would take will be one that will seek to promote the wellbeing of the Nigerian masses.
He stressed that corporate interest of the citizenry and a united Nigeria where no man is oppressed is paramount and very dear to their hearts.
Baraje thanked Nigerians who have always seen reason for their struggle particularly, the media for adequately reportage of their activities.
