Kaduna PDP Chairmanship: Why I Stepped Down – Haruna


By; Alex Uangbaoje, Kaduna.
Kaduna State Chairman of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Hon Abubakar Gaiya Haruna, said he stepped down from contesting in the congress in other to pave way for the former Minister of State for Aviation, Hon Felix Hassan Hyat to emerge.
Gaiya said his decision not to contest as the Chairman of the PDP in Kaduna was for the interest of the party.
According to Gaiya, it is important for politicians from the Southern part of Kaduna State to find a common ground on issues, adding that his stepping down for the former Minister has proved many people wrong.
“Look we have learned a lot from former President Goodluck Jonathan when it comes to issues like this,” Gaiya told newsmen.
Gaiya, who is the outgoing Chairman of Kaduna State chapter of the PDP, said he is ready to support former Minister of State for Aviation, Mr Felix Hassan Hyat to succeed.
“They zoned the PDP Chairmanship office to Southern Kaduna and a lot of us came out to contest. People wanted to see if we can speak with one voice. I stepped down for Hassan Hyat after other seven contestants have done so. For me, it was not appropriate for us from Southern Kaduna to start contesting an office zoned to our area. We have spoken with one voice and our decision is for the interest of the party. Anyone that did not stepped down as advised will spend his money trying to mobilised delegates,” Gaiya added.
The Kaduna State PDP Chairman, Gaiya, said he will offer his support to the incoming Chairman to unite the party members for a good outing in 2019.
