Police lock ‘New PDP’ office


Following the crisis rocking the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), the police have sealed off the office of the Alhaji Abubakar Kawu Baraje-led faction, situated at Plot 3206A, No 4, Oyi River Crescent, Maitama Abuja.

The PDP splintered into two  last weekend after a group of members, led by former Vice President Atiku Abubakar and six governors namely, Sule Lamido (Jigawa), Abddulfatah Ahmed (Kwara), Aliyu Babangida (Niger), Aliyu Magatakadar Wammako (Sokoto), Musa Rabiu Kwankwaso (Kano) and Murtala Nyako (Adamawa), staged a walk out from the party’s special national convention holding at the Eagle Square and, less than one hour later, announced the emergence of their own faction of the PDP and named some members as top officials of the party.

Following the development, the “new PDP” as it calls itself appointed new exco members and rented a new office at Maitama.
