Bauchi State Governor Bala Mohammed Abdulkadir has set up a 22-man-member reconciliation committee to win people in the opposition camp in the state into the People’s Democratic Party, PDP.
The Governor locked horns with former Vice President Atiku Abubakar at the recently conducted presidential primaries of the party in Abuja openly pledged his support to Atiku ahead of the 2023 general election. At the moment, Bala Mohammed holds Bauchi governorship ticket in preparation for the 2023 polls.
Bala Mohammed said this in Bauchi while inaugurating the 22-member Bauchi PDP reconciliation committee at the Government House Bauchi.
He said the success of the party at the polls is dearer to him than any other consideration.
The Governor said Nigeria needs the tactical prowess of the PDP to help put back the nation on track for a prosperous day ahead after years of APC incompetence.
He called on PDP members in Bauchi who felt unfairly treated at the recently concluded primaries in the state to make their case before the committee, assuring that the committee will carry out its mandate without fair or favour to any section of the party members in the state.
Governor Bala said it is a norm that after every primary election a portion of members of the party will hold grievances against the outcome of the election, adding that the internal democratic process within the PDP afforded an enabling playing field to all members.
He said though, at the moment, the party did not register any complaint accruing from the conduct of the primaries of the party in the state.
He said the committee has been inaugurated to ensure fairness to all party members.
The committee, WikkiTimes gathered, has four weeks to submit its report to the party secretariat
