The 2  hours meeting was said to have been attended by PDP stakeholders such as Bello Hayatu Gwarzo and Ambassador Aminu and many more.

According to the source, there is an ongoing battle between Kwankwaso and Doguwa, over the fate their members aspiring for various positions via the PDP platform.

“Kwankwaso told the gathering that any move to remove any member of Kwankwasiyya from the aspirants list will lead to his defection from PDP.
