PDP inaugurates caretaker committee for Zamfara

31 October 2013, 11:36

Abuja - The National Chairman of the PDP, Bamanga Tukur, has inaugurated a 12-man caretaker committee to manage the affairs of the party in Zamfara.

Speaking on Wednesday in Abuja while inaugurating the committee, Tukur urged the members of the committee to ensure that aggrieved members of the party in the state were reconciled.

He said that the committee was inaugurated because the tenure of the current state executive committee of the party in the state had expired.

He said that the caretaker committee was expected to manage the affairs of the party and conduct fresh election for a new executive in the state.

The chairman urged members of the caretaker committee to ensure that the tenets of true democracy were maintained in the state.

In his response, the chairman of the caretaker committee, Ibrahim Adamu said the members were prepared to work.

He said that the committee was ready to mobilise people at the grassroots in Zamfara to ensure the victory of the party in the 2015 election.

He said the committee would need the support of the party's leadership to succeed in its assignment.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Yunusa Shusha would serve as secretary of the committee.

Other members of the committee included Bashir Kurya, Bello Moriki, Kabiru Moyi, Umaru Bungudu, Bala Maru, Danlami Idris and Yusuf Idris.

Hassan Danmri, Ibrahim Danmaliki and Abdullahi Yanware are also members of the committee.

In a related development, the PDP National Working Committee (NWC) would on October 31, inaugurate a 60-man National Campaign Committee for the November 16 Anambra governorship election.

A statement issued on Wednesday in Abuja by Olisa Metuh, the party`s National Publicity Secretary, said the decision was part of resolutions reached at the 363 meeting of the NWC.

He said the committee would be headed by the Vice President, Namadi Sambo, while Victor Kwon, the party's National Legal Adviser would serve as secretary.

He said the committee was expected to work round the clock to ensure the victory of the party in the election.

He urged members of the party in the state to close ranks and support the party's candidate, Tony Nwoye to ensure his success in the election.
