The People Democratic Movement, (PDM), said Alhaji that Bashir Yusuf Ahmad is not the National Chairman of the Party, and that he has no capacity to function or speak as such.
It said the National Working Committee (NWC) of the party has already been dissolved since November 24th, 2016, saying on July 4th, 2017, the party also got a Federal High Court injection stopping Bashir Yusuf Ahmad from parading himself as the PDM’s national chairman,
Speaking in Abuja on Wednesday after the meeting of the 36 state chairmen of the party and that of the Federal Capital Territory, (FCT), alongside the Chairman of the National Advisory Council, (NAC), and the National Secretary, the party said it invigorated by the Federal Hight Court’s judgement, even as it prepares to participate win the coming general elections at national and state levels.
According to the Chairman of the National Advisory Committee, Chief Frank Igwebuike, Bashir Ahmad who is parading himself as national chairman of the party not only broke the laws of the country but has also gone ahead to disobey the constitutions of the party and disregarded the judgement of the high court which struck out his petition and awarded cost against him.
Igwebuike said Bashir Ahmad is neither a member of the party, neither was he recognized by any of the 36 state chairmen of the party, including that of the FCT.
Describing Bashir Ahmad as a political jobber who is only out to destroy the party ahead of the 2019 presidential and general elections, the NAC chairman explained that Bashir Ahmad had since left the PDM after joining the All Progressives Congress, (APC), and accepting the position of a board member of the Benin Owena River Basin Development Authority from President Muhammadu Buhari.
