PDP crisis: You are impostors – Tukur tells new PDP

Bamanga Tukur
Embattled National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Bamanga Tukur in what appeared like a riot act on Tuesday, described the Bareje led new PDP as impostors and renegade.
In a world press conference in Abuja this afternoon, the adamant and unperturbed Tukur said there was only one Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) led by his executives, adding that any other one laying claims to any leadership in the party is an impostor, urging Nigerians to see them as such.
“I want to state categorically that, the Peoples Democratic Party has no faction, the PDP has only one duly elected National working Committee under my chairmanship. I wish therefore to state that anybody parading himself as a member of any executive is deceiving himself and will face the wrath of the law. There is only one legally recognised PDP and I am firmly in charge. I wish therefore to state that anybody parading himself as chairman is an impostor.’’
He said that Nigerians and the leadership of the party will not fold their arms while some unscrupulous, unpatriotic elements destroy the party. While stressing that any person not duly elected and is laying claim to the leadership of the party, arrogating power to himself would be made to face the law.
Tukur equally noted that those who are in position of authority under the platform of the party that identified with the new PDP will have their seats declared vacant as required by the law.
He urged members to make use of the internal mechanism of the party in ventilating or channelling their grievances.
