Defection: Sambo Storms Kaduna

Sequel to last week’s defection of former Kaduna State Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Audi Yaro Makama, some former commissioners and several other stakeholders to the All Progressives Congress (APC), Vice President Mohammed Namadi Sambo yesterday arrived Kaduna apparently to intervene in the crisis tearing PDP apart in his state.
The Vice President who arrived Kaduna in the convoy of the Executive Governor Mukhtar Ramalan Yaro, His Deputy and some major PDP stakeholders, alongside security chiefs in the state at about 5pm moved straight to the Presidential Lodge, General Hassan Usman Kastina House.
Newsmen who waited patiently to speak with the Vice President on the PDP crisis in state did not get to see him, and other party stalwarts would not speak to the press.
As observed things are not well judging from the looks on their faces.
However, one of the State PDP women leaders, Hajiya Hauwa Kilda denied the allegations that Kaduna State PDP is in crisis.
According to her, the Vice President is in his home town to meet with his people and foster ways of moving the state forward.
Speaking on the recent defection by some PDP members in the state, Hajiya Kilda said “politics is all about interest and if Yaro Makama and others feel they no longer have interest in the PDP agenda, they are free to move.”
An inside source who preferred anonymity disclosed that the Vice President would be in the state for two or more days during which he would be meeting with party stakeholders in an attempt to mend the broken fences in the party.
It was also gathered that he may be meeting with some of the defectors with a view to wooing them back to the party.
