Kogi Guber: Why PDP May Go Into Extinction In Kogi – Friday Sani
Friday Sani Makama, a Former lawmaker who represented Igalamela/Odolu Constituency in the Kogi State House of Assembly, has said that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Kogi State would go into extinction if party leaders continue to entrench their personal interests ahead of the gubernatorial elections in the state.
Sani condemned in strong terms through a letter he addressed to PDP leaders in the State and the National headquarters that the party was losing credibility over Alhaji Ibrahim Idris fielding his son, Abubakar Ibrahim as a gubernatorial aspirant.
The letter which was obtained by newsmen on Wednesday in Abuja noted that the development was dismantling the PDP structure in the State, adding that it would deny the party victory come November 16 gubernatorial elections.
Part of the letter reads: “I quite understand the fact that the fact that Igala lost leadership in PDP as a result of our leader’s to promote his son to become Governor of Kogi State.”
According to him, all aspirants contesting the gubernatorial elections across the State have constitutional rights to do so, adding that, “the chances of PDP would replete if the previous arrangements were jettisoned.”
He urged PDP leaders in the State not to be divisive, noting that the current travails in the State call for a competent person to take over governance through the November 2019 elections.
