Former Minister of Police Affairs, Adamu Waziri, has described as unfortunate the dwindling fortunes of the People’s Democratic Party in Yobe State and attributed it to lack of legitimate leadership of the party at the state level.
Speaking to Channels Television in Damaturu, the Yobe State capital, the former Minister said that as a founding father of the party in the state, he would not just sit back and watch the dwindling fortunes of the party but would work hard to reposition the party ahead of the 2015 general elections.
The former minister said that he was consulting with relevant stakeholders across the state for the restoration of the party in the state with a view to clinching power from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) government in the state.
The Yobe PDP has since the return of democracy to Nigeria, failed to make the desired impact in the state as the three governors since then have been of the All Nigeria People’s Party, which has now merged with other parties to become the All Progressives Congress, APC.
At the moment, only one member of the National Assembly is of the PDP while all the state lawmakers are in the APC, a situation the former minister vowed to change come 2015.
