The former Kano governor who is the leader of the Kwankwasiyya political movement said he is still a member of the PDP and will continue to work with his colleagues to ensure the party succeeds.
PDP's crisis would have been averted
Kwankwaso also spoke on the suit by Uche Secondus, suspended PDP national chairman, asking the court to suspend the party's national convention.
He said he had advised the PDP to allow Secondus and his team to complete their term since they have just had a few months left.
The former minister of defence said the current crisis would have been averted if his advice was heeded.
He said Secondus' suit has created uncertainty which is not good for the party’s convention as people who are supposed to be in Abuja are somewhere else waiting for the court verdict which is expected on Friday, October 29.
PDP convention: Party leaders move to prevail sn Secondus to drop suit
Meanwhile, other leaders of the PDP have swung into action with the hope of saving the party from impending doom.
The leaders were reportedly pleading with Secondus to have a rethink.
A source in PDP said several party leaders have arrived in Abuja in preparation for the national convention while a whole other have concluded plans to be present at the event. According to the source, it would be unfair for Secondus to be the one to cause such a crisis within the party ranks.
