The Peoples Democratic Movement (PDM) has inaugurated its National Fund Raising Committee to raise funds for the activities of the party, especially the congresses and National Convention coming up in August 2014.
Performing the inauguration, the National Chairman of PDM, Mallam Bashir Yusuf Ibrahim, noted that the fund raising committee was set up to give all stakeholders a stake in how the party is funded and ensure that it is not funded by a small group of financiers as is the case with other political parties in the country. He urged members of the committee to use their enormous goodwill to ensure adequate funds are raised.
The National Chairman informed members of the committee that their selection was in recognition of their resourcefulness and commitment towards the growth and sustenance of the party as well as their individual traits of honesty, transparency and integrity.
Members of the Committee include Sen. Lado Danmarke, Alh. Ibrahim Gusau, Dame Titi Ajanaku, Alh. Alin Kwari, Alh. Haruna Maitala, Hon. Frederice Osar-Ose Uyigue, Dr. Akin Badmus, Alh. Musa Bashir Baffa, Alh. Adamu Mohammed, Mrs. Cicilia Aku, Mr. Dagogo Emmanuel, Hon. Zakari Shemaza Kutunku with Alh. Aminu Ayama as Secretary.
