Jos- The Plateau chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) said on Thursday that it had no leadership crisis that would warrant the resignation of its chairman, Haruna Dabin.
Peter Shyepsuk, the State Publicity Secretary of the party, said in a statement in Jos that the State Working Committee (SWC) of the party did not hold any meeting where it asked the chairman to resign for nursing a governorship ambition.
He said that the SWC still affirmed that Dabin was still the state chairman of the party.
"Let it be stated clearly that the leadership of the party did not at any point in time ask the chairman, Dr Haruna Dabin, to resign his position.
"What actually happened was that at the commencement of the SWC meeting, a member challenged the chairman who was presiding to step down.
"The member claimed that Dabin has signalled his intention to run for the governorship of the state in 2015 which disqualified him from continuing as state chairman of the party.
"The member said that based on that Dabin would not preside over the SWC meeting and if he did, that he would not be part of that meeting.
"In the ensuing arguments, the member and three others, opposed to the chairman, walked out of the meeting after Dabin insisted on presiding and supported by majority of members.
According to Shyepsuk, Dabin told the meeting that the PDP constitution did not ask him to resign before making his intention to contest the governorship of the state known.
He stated that the meeting continued with majority of members present while Dabin presided as the state chairman.
