In a document written and signed by Dr. John Danfulani, entitled: “PUBLIC INAUGURATION OF KADUNA STATE PDP CTCs: Joke of the century!” Which was issued to Gurara Accord, Danfulani vehemently rejects the conversion and inauguration of Ward Excos to Caretaker Committee, CTC, by the former Chairman of the kaduna State chapter of the People’s Democratic Party, Mr. Felix Hassan Hyet.
According to Danfulani, the state PRO of PDP claimed that WADATA PLAZA approved commuting of the present party excos to care taker committees. And later issued another statement withdrawing parts of his earlier letter(withdrawal of approval of new ward excos).
Since only approval of ward excos list was withrawn other orders subsist i.e.conversion of LG, zonal and state party excos to CTCs. To the best of our knowledge, tenures of the three branches of the party (LG, Zone and State) are still on. When they expired, the ritual of swearing in can take place.
The 28th April 2020 approval letter from WADATA PLAZA gave the state the authority to inaugurate new ward excos on 30th April 2020. This task given, even without their withdrawal letter, was not possible. Why? Because of the lockdown in Kaduna state(it was a Thursday- day that movement is illegal), and the law forbiding large gatherings. Ward excos are usually inaugurated at LG party office. A rough estimate shows that, they are almost two hundred, excluding LG party exos, major stakeholders and their loved ones.
A careful reader will notice a vacuum in these dramas being staged by WADATA PLAZA and Kaduna state PDP leaders. And somehow,they swam their fins into the net of confusion that only divine intervention can salvage them.
Techniccally, their withdrawal left wards without CTC or legal party excos. Once in such quandary,only 100% unity of party members and all stateholders can solve the problem.
Somehow, the state chairman of the party Mr.Felix Hassan Hyet realised that they have dribbled themselves and scored an own goal. Again, instead of drawing back and peruse the situation properly, he went into another nauseating and no nuisance value misadventure which is; public convertion and inauguration of ward excos that their tenures expired on 30th April 2020 to CTCs.
Who gave him the power to do that? We saw a letter that converted higher party organs to CTCs but didn’t see the one that authorised the illegal midnight announcement of 30th April 2020.
