PDP Crisis Worsens As Marwa Dumps Party

Chris Steven, Abuja

The last may not have been of the trouble that has befallen the erstwhile ruling party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), as former military governor of Lagos state, Gen. Mohammed Buba Marwa, yesterday dumped the party.

Marwa, in a statement by his media aide, Bello Zubairu said that he left  the party on personal reason.

The statement said: “The former military governor decided to quit the PDP on personal grounds.”

It would be recalled that before the emergence of the All Progressives Congress, (APC), Marwa was the governorship candidate of the Congress for Progressive Change (CPC) in Adamawa state and after the merger of CPC and other opposition parties to form the APC, thousands of his supporters from several local government areas of Adamawa state were technically denied the opportunity to register in the new party then.

Though the statement was silent on whether Marwa would be returning to the APC, it however stated that “the retired General will be making public his next line of action in the coming days.”

He however appealed to his numerous supporters and well-wishers, who have been calling him for direction from across the country to await his next move.
