Why PDP declared purported Jigawa LG caretaker committees illegal, null and void

By Suleiman Abdullahi

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has explained why it declared the purported composition and inauguration of unauthorized caretaker committees in the 27 local governments in Jigawa state as illegal, null and void.

The National Working Committee (NWC) of the PDP which called on all the party’s leaders, members and supporters in Jigawa state and the country at large to disregard the purported caretaker committees, claimed that they do not have the mandate and approval of the party at any level.

In a statement by Mr Kola Ologbondiyan, the PDP National Publicity Secretary, the NWC said it has therefore directed the North West Zonal Working Committee of the party, to immediately take charge and supervise the activities of the Jigawa state Caretaker Committee.

The NWC assured all members of the PDP in Jigawa and urged them to remain calm and continue to work with the North West Zonal Working Committee as it coordinates the activities of the Jigawa State Caretaker Committee.
