Contrary to reports in some quaters that the State secretariat of the Peoples Democratic Party in Borno, was demolished, PDP youth leader for Borno Central, Umar Sanda on Monday said the building was still standing. Sanda, who represented Maiduguri Metropolitan Council as member of the State PDP caretaker committee before the party became factionalized, also released a photo of the building. He said the clarification became necessary in view of misleading reports capable of destabilizing the peace in Maiduguri.
Sanda in a statement said: ”I have been receiving calls from some of our PDP members in local government areas within Borno State, and some members outside the State, asking me whether it was true that the PDP state secretariat in Maiduguri has been demolished. ”As early as 7am, I rushed to our State secretariat located in Wukari, off Sir Kashim Ibrahim way, around the old UTC which everyone knows to be our State headquarters in Maiduguri within the last fifteen years and saw it intact.
