Abuja - The decision whether or not to grant waivers to former Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) Chairman, Nuhu Ribadu and two others seeking its governorship ticket, has split Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) National Working Committee (NWC) into different camps.
While the Chairman of the party, Adamu Muazu and a few other members of the NWC are favourably disposed to granting the waivers to the candidates, many NWC are opposed to the move, reports The Nation.
Member of the NWC could not arrive at a final conclusion on the issue at the Wednesday’s meeting of the committee in Abuja.
