Peace may be coming to the crisis ridden Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Adamawa state, as former Minister of Information, Prof. Jerry Gana Monday waded into factional crisis in the state at the instance of the Presidency. The basic aim of the intervention is to ensure harmonisation of party offices in the state between the factions.
Gana at the instance of President Goodluck Jonathan met with the two factions of PDP in the state. The former minister who is also heading the restructuring of the party's Board of Trustees (BoT) committee is expected to meet both factional chairmen and groups loyal to Governor Muritala Nyako and the National Chairman of PDP, Alhaji Bamanga Tukur.
This is the second intervention by the Presidency. The first intervention was when the committee led by Governor Sule Lamido was set up by President Goodluck Jonathan. Alhaji Kaugama Minjijiwa is leading the faction loyal to Nyako and Joel Madaki faction loyal to Tukur. At the preliminary meeting Monday the Madaki group demanded for 65 percent of the state executive council of the party.
