2023 : Chaos as thugs sack PDP Northwest zonal congress


Miscreants suspected to be hired political thugs on Saturday invaded the North-West Zonal Congress of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) held at Kaduna International Trade Fair ground, scattering the event.

It was not clear what caused the chaotic situation, but there were insinuations that supporters of key contenders for elections in 2023 were responsible for the development that led to the destruction of ballot boxes and chairs.


The major contenders for the position of National Vice Chairman, Northwest include Sen. Bello Hayatudeen Gwarzo, Aminu Wali and a candidate of former Governor of Kano State, Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso.

A source told our correspondent that some supporters loyal to Sen. Kwankwaso were responsible for the chaotic situation the congress turned to.

The source hinted that the thugs had already taken over the venue even before the commencement of the congress and “when they foresaw the possibility of their leader losing out, they became aggressive and turned things upside down”.

“Some miscreants from Kwankwasiyya group, Kano, disrupted the PDP North West congress against the aspiration of a loyal PDP member from Kano who is not in their group”, the source said.

Meanwhile, the former Minister of Information, Prof. Jerry Gana, was yesterday readmitted into the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) alongside five other prominent former members who earlier left the party from the North Central Zone.
