Naija News learnt that Doguwa described the election which was conducted by the committee headed by Ezeogu Emeka-Onuaha as null and void.
He further explained that they had been in the PDP for quite some time and were conversant with the technicalities involved in conducting primary elections.
“With this attitude of impunity of enforcing candidates on members of the party, the national leadership of the party is doing nothing but paving way for the All progressives Congress (APC) to win elections in Kano State,”
He added that a court had ordered that the party’s caretakers were operating illegally, yet they went ahead and conducted the governorship primaries, saying members of the party would not accept such illegality.
The chairman, therefore, urged the National leadership of the party to ensure justice and fairness for the survival of the party in the state.
