Members of the Plateau State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) have hailed the party’s Deputy National Chairman, North, Sen. Sulieman Nazif, for his efforts in resolving the months-long leadership tussle that has rocked the chapter and had created disunity and disloyalty among members in the state during the period.
You would recall that the leadership tussle in Plateau chapter of the PDP has been an issue before the National Working Committee for months before the appointment and approval of Sen. Nazif, as the Deputy National Chairman North, in November, 2019, in furtherance of section 47 (6) of the Constitution of the PDP.
Members, who spoke to REALITY during and after the swearing in ceremony of Hon. Yakubu Gwott Chocho, as the Substantive Chairman of the chapter, while expressing happiness over the development said that, the coming of the two-time Senator into office is a blessing to the state chapter and the entire party at large.
Taking their time, some member of the State Executive Council (SEC) who are not surprised by the development said, Sen. Nazif, had only displayed a little part of his qualities, while also describing him, as a nationalist, grassroots politician, and philanthropist.
They added that, “A man that has served as Chairman, Senate Committee on Labour and Productivity, as well as, Chairman, Senate Committee on the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), the duty to correct, redirect, rebuild and resolve the issues concerning Plateau State chapter was a small task, but yet commendable.”
Adding that, “Since we started honouring meetings with him at Abuja, we know from his actions that, he has Plateau chapter at heart and would want the PDP to own Plateau State again. From his eyes, you can see his worries and disappointments. We are grateful that this issue of leadership that has bedeviled the chapter for so long was resolved through his intervention.”
