FORMER Governor of Niger state and member board of trustee of the Peoples Democratic Party PDP, Engineer Abdulkadir Abdullahi Kure has given the assurance that the current leadership crisis rocking the party will soon be a thing of the past as the reconciliation move by the elders of the party is beginning to yield result. Engineer Kure disclosed this in Minna on Saturday evening when PDP elders and stakeholders from zone c senatorial district in the state, led by the former Minister of state for foreign affair, AlhajiAbubakarAchituwo and the party governorship aspirant in the 2015 election in the state, AlhajiHannafi Susan paid him a courtesy visit in his home. He informed his guests including all former and present national and state houses of assembly members, chairmen of local government andcouncilors from the zone that already the ModuSherif led faction has agreed to embrace peace for the overall interest of the party. He said the party will come out of the current leadership crisis stronger and will avoid the type of crisis that led to it losing the 2015 general election, saying that the party will take it’s rightful place in the Nigeria politics come 2019. Kure told the PDP members from the zone that the party has a lot of lesson to learn from the experience of 2015 where “PDP defeated PDP” and gave birth to the current change which has put Nigeria in its worst economic situation in her 56 years of existence as a nation. According to him, “all the PDP members who left the party and ensure the party lost the 2015 general election are not comfortable where they are today. They are not finding things easy at the moment”. He argued that everything that PDP was accused of doing in the past is exactly what is happening today and even worst, adding that “they said PDP postponed election to rig, today we saw election being postponed and rigged”. He said that the current crisis in the ruling All Progressives Congress(APC) is worse than that of PDP with over five factions and groups are already in existence, saying that “if they said PDP is a dying party, I think APC is already dead before 2019”. “Today we have in the APC, Tinubu faction, Amaechi faction, Atiku faction, BukolaSaraki faction and the rest of them. But we in PDP have just one faction and we have already overcome it, we will now wait and see how they will overcome their factional problems”.
