The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Yobe State has summoned an extraordinary stakeholders meeting of the party ahead of the 2015 general elections.
The meeting, chaired by the State Caretaker Chairman of the party, Sule Abdulkadir Doguwa, was attended by over 200 party stakeholders drawn from across the state.
Addressing newsmen shortly after the meeting, the caretaker chairman said that the meeting discussed exhaustively on the progress of the party at whisking power from the All Progressives Congress (APC).
He said that the meeting also deliberated on party selection process in all elective positions ahead of the election and gave assurances that all the primaries would be peacefully resolved.
“We as a party have resolved all our issues ahead of the 2015 general election and I can confirm to you we don’t have any faction in the party again. We are working to win all the election positions during 2015 election,” Doguwa said.
The Chairman said that the party also resolved to embark on zonal rally to galvanize the party and its members as part of the repositioning process.
The meeting had in attendance the former Minister of Police Affairs, Adamu Maina Waziri, that of State for Finance, Dr. Yarima Ngama and the present Minister of State for Science and Technology, Dr. Abdul Bulama among others.
The All People’s Party (APP) which later changed to the All Nigeria People’s Party (ANPP) and now the All Progressives Congress (APC) has continued to dominate the governance of the state since the return of democracy in 1999.
Currently, all but one of the elective offices in the state are being manned by the APC, a situation the Yobe PDP has vowed to change come 2015.
