The Kano State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has rejected the governorship primary election conducted on Monday in the state.
Senator Rabiu Kwankwaso’s son-in-law, Abba Kabiru Yusuf, emerged as PDP governorship candidate in the state in the primary election that was conducted on Monday night.
The primary election held at the personal residence of Kwankwaso was conducted by the electoral committee constituted by the party National Working Committee (NWC) headed by Ezeogu Emeka-Onouha.
The State Chairman of the party, Sen. Mas’ud Doguwa, declared the stand of the party while addressing newsmen in Kano on Tuesday.
Doguwa described the election that was conducted by the committee headed by Ezeogu Emeka-Onuaha as null and void.
He explained that they had been in the PDP for quite some time and were conversant with the technicalities involved in conducting primary elections.
Doguwa said a court had ordered a substantial order that the party’s caretakers were operating illegally, yet they went ahead and conducted the governorship primaries, saying members of the party would not accept such illegality
The chairman, therefore, urged the National leadership of the party to ensure justice and fairness for the survival of the party in the state.
