Zamfara PDP vice chair resigns

…Says party lost direction

From Ahmad Ibrahim Gusau

The Zamfara State People’s Democratic Party (PDP) vice chairman, Prof. Kabiru Jabaka has resigned from the party.

He said PDP has lost direction, adding that it is no longer in line with principles of providing social justice.

In a statement issued on Friday evening, Prof. Jabaka said his exit from the party was as a result of its operating without regards to the constitution in the state. 

“A lot of people were asking whether I truly exited from PDP and what were the reasons and whether I resigned from my position in the party or not and what were the motivations. 

“The answer is in the affirmative and the answer to the former caters for the latter.

“I have principally taken this decision in view of the fact that PDP is no longer in line with my principles which are social justices based and development focused as contained in the party manifestos. 

“Consequent from covetous leadership, the party has completely lost direction,” the vice chairman said. 

He disclosed that the party operates without regards to the nation’s constitution and its own constitution, regulations or even decorum. 

He said such party (PDP) does not and cannot provide the salvation people are labouring for in favour of the people of the country.

He said: “This covetousness of the leadership does not only demonstrate in what drains the party and dwindles its prospect but also sells it out to the benefit of its opposition.

“Imagine for instance, a biological son of a state party chairman holding sensitive political appointments as SA and councilor in an opposition government.

“I have been undermined by the unseriousness and lack of focus.

“I observed in the gubernatorial flag bearer of the party, we all saw his commitment in the 2019 when he was not given the ticket to contest. 

“Now he got the ticket but we are not witnessing half of his past commitment.” 

He revealed that people have casted doubt about the sincerity of the party flag bearer. 

“By implication, people adjudged him as an agent paving way for the APC on lack of focus which also demonstrates unpreparedness; the big chunk that frightens the awake minds is here.

“Insecurity for instance is the most bedeviling scourge to a traumatizing state in the North and more particularly in Zamfara. 

“So any aspirant that cannot spell out intention in tackling it, does not give the impression that he is out to provide a sigh of relief to the distressed indigenes, even the current government of Bello Matawalle we are fighting is making proclamations on improving it,” he disclosed.

The vice chairman mentioned that if aspirant cannot say a word, what other bait does he think of to attract support, stressing that aggrieved members of the party who were meted injustice do not see any hope of getting justice or any redress from it.
