From Ahmed Idris, Birnin Kebbi

Kebbi North People’s Democratic Party (PDP) Zonal vice chairman, Alhaji Muhammadu RK Ruwa Dakingari has said that they are still strong as an opposition party and also set to reposition the party before coming 2023 general election.
He stated this on Monday in Birnin Kebbi while fielding questions from newsmen adding that the party will soon bounce back and made a progress.
“we are doing well and we are working towards united, while in my capacity as a stakeholders in the party I did not aware that any member from the PDP in the state collected bribe or monetary induced compromise from anybody, before, during or after the last general election” he said.
Our correspondents gathered that their was a rumour spread across the state that some party officials 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.
“you see after the elections, some of the stakeholders in the party meet and they discussed but their is nothing like that, 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” he added.
