THE Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Nasarawa State, Honourable Francis Orugu, has declared that the victory of the Makarafi-led faction of the party was a sign of an end to the senatorial ambition of Governor Umaru Tanko Al-Makura.
Orugu made the statement, on Saturday, when he was accompanied by a crowd of supporters to the party’s secretariat, after returning from Abuja, venue of the Supreme Court’s judgment.
He explained that the governor was trying to cause confusion in the party in the state, hence, the reason he sponsored a non-party member to declare himself parallel chairman of the party.
“The victory portends that the doors are closed to those going to the senate and open to PDP members going to the state government house,” he said.
He said his next agenda was to begin to look for genuine members of the party to return to the party and be part of due process, noting that as leaders of the party, they would be fair to every genuine aspirant.
