PDP suffers setback as Gov. Matawalle marks secretariat for demolition


Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), in Zamfara State, has instituted a suit challenging the state’s Urban Regional and Planning Board, ZUREP, for marking the party’s state secretariat in Gusau for demolition

The state Caretaker Chairman, Bala Mande made this known while addressing newsmen immediately after the party’s executive meeting at the secretariat on Wednesday.

Mande, who is a former Chief of Staff to Governor Bello Matawalle had remained in the PDP after the governor joined the All Progressives Congress, APC, on June 27.

He stated that marking the party secretariat for demolishing was mischievous and an attempt to harass and intimidate the party members and officials.

“The PDP members are law-abiding citizens and we have approached a competent court to seek redress over the matter.”

Mr Mande urged supporters of the PDP to remain law-abiding and refrain from taking the law into their hands.

It was reported that in the suit filed before Zamfara High Court sitting in Gusau, the PDP is among others seeking the court to set aside the October 29 notice of demolition given by ZUREP and declare it as illegal.

It also prayed the court to compel the defendant to pay the party the sum of N60 million as damages.
