Below is the press release:
JOINT PRESS RELEASE BY TWO KATSINA STATE PDP GUBERNATORIAL ASPIRANTS: (Mal. Abdullahi G. Faskari & Alh. Sada Ilu)
We have rejected the process that produced Sen. Yakubu Lado as the Party’s Most favoured Gubernatorial Aspirant for 2019.
We agreed on the process to be followed in selecting a consensus candidate by the party before the Primaries. We also agreed among other conditions that “…there will be no Voter inducement, financial or otherwise from any one of us…”
We realised however, that all the conditions were breached with the active connivance of the State Party Chairman and some of the party officials.
In view thereof:
1. We have rejected the result;
2. We have lost confidence in the leadership of the party at the State level and as such, we are not comfortable to participate in the primaries unless there is very strong intervention by the PDP National Headquaters on Transparency, Justice and Fair Play.
Finally, we are by this Press Release urging the PDP National Headquaters to intervene in the interest of the party, Party members in the State & the People of Katsina State in general.
