Tukur, Anenih Disagree On Fate Of G-7 Govs - Leadership

Buoyed by Friday’s Federal High Court verdict, which gave it a lifeline and the INEC’s pronouncement that authenticated its leadership, the Alhaji Bamanga Tukur-led ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has mulled stern punitive measures against promoters of the Alhaji Kawu Baraje-led group, otherwise known as the ‘new PDP’.

The punitive steps to be taken, according to an impeccable source in the party, include a process that would lead to the eventual expulsion of the backers of the factional body, also known as the G-7 governors.

The G-7 governors, who are promoters of the new PDP are Rotimi Amaechi (Rivers); Rabiu Kwankwaso (Kano); Aliyu Wammako (Sokoto); Abdulfatah Ahmed (Kwara); Sule Lamido(Jigawa); Babangida Aliyu (Niger) and Murtala Nyako (Adamawa).

But the arrowheads of the planned measures have the chairman of the party’s Board of Trustees (BoT), Chief Tony Anenih to contend with, as he insists that the governors, as leaders of the party in their respective states are still needed in the party.
