A PDP Zonal vice chairman Kebbi north, Alhaji Muhammadu RK Ruwa Dakingari said, in his personal capacity he does not know whether any member of the PDP in Kebbi state had collected bribe or monetary induced compromise from anybody, before, during or after the general election. Alhaji Ruwa said this on Saturday, in Birnin kebbi during an interaction with Seniora Post.
Seniora Post gathered that there had been wide spread allegation that had circulated in the general public in Kebbi state, that some top placed and influential PDP members in Kebbi state might have compromised, following alleged financial inducement during the general elections.
PDP in Kebbi had loss balance at the dying and most crucial moment during the gubernatorial election, a situation that resulted to a death knell and was allegedly attributed to financial inadequacy.
Alhaji Ruwa said “ After the elections, some of the stakeholders in PDP Kebbi thought there is need to come together to find out what actually transpired during and after elections. To me I cannot say somebody took bribe, because we are yet to find out. Immediately after the elections, there had been exodus of prominent members of the PDP decamped to APC and because of that, there has been saying that there is no more PDP in Kebbi state. There was an instance in Bagudo Local government where we wanted to collect some of the material belonging to PDP from the former PDP chairman who joined the APC, but they said we had no rights because there is no PDP in Bagudo local government.”
“ So if there are people who think there is no PDP in Kebbi state, we the people in PDP should make sure that the PDP is existing in Kebbi state. We want to reposition the PDP to make sure that the PDP is vibrant, to make sure the PDP is alive in Kebbi state, and we are up to the task. There wasn’t serious election, as I mentioned earlier, many prominent PDP stakeholders decided to join APC, if that has happened that is very terrible, I for once, I did not even know why we failed the election, I have been wondering why, with all the popularity of the PDP candidate (Senator Isah Galaudu) and with all the popularity of the PDP in Kebbi state, it ended like that,…. I’m still surprised “.
“ I urge the good people of Kebbi state to hang on, PDP is going to bounce back, definitely we are going to succeed insha Allahu, those who are seriously minded about PDP they are still in PDP, even if you go to rural areas, they’ll say muna nan, meaning they are still there for PDP , those who are serious about PDP are still in PDP, so PDP is alive in Kebbi state”.
