Many members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) have left the party in Kaduna state, six days to the March 9 governorship elections across Nigeria.
Kaduna PDP governorship aspirant Mohammed Sani Sidi announced his resignation over the weekend.
He also said he was leaving the party with his followers across the 23 local government areas of Kaduna.
Concise News gathered that the PDP governorship aspirant did not indicate the party they were joining.
The mass defection was revealed by Ahmed Maiyaki, a close associate of Sani Sidi.
Sidi conveyed his resignation in a letter sent to the Chairman of Unguwan Sarki Ward in Kaduna North area.
”Since the party’s primaries held last year, characterized by manipulations, impunity, lack of internal democracy and intimidations of party delegates, the party’s leadership at the state or the candidate has failed to genuinely engage all aspirants towards consultation and genuine reconciliation, an important task that would have helped the party forge ahead,” he said.
”Even more worrisome is the mutual mistrust that exists between the party leadership, the gubernatorial candidate and some of its members and above all the failure to showcase any meaningful blueprint and capacity on how to govern the state when voted into power.
“It is based on these reasons and after due consultation with my political associates across the 23 local government areas, l decided to resign my membership of the party henceforth. And l thank you most sincerely for your support while in the party.”
