Alhaji Abdullahi Jibo, Bauchi State Chairman of People Democratic Movement (PDM), said on Tuesday in Bauchi that lack of funds had stalled the party’s membership registration in the state.
Jibo, who stated this in an interview with Naija247news.com in Bauchi, said though materials for the exercise were available, money had not been released for funding the exercise.
“We have the materials at hand, but we are lacking logistics to transport them to the various local government areas.
“We will wait until funds are available, then a new date will be fixed for commencement of the exercise,’’ he said.
Jibo said the exercise would not commence until funds were released from the party’s headquarters, adding that whenever the exercise began, there would be extra days to recover lost ground.
According to reports that the exercise, scheduled from March 17 to March 23, was to take place in all the 20 local government areas of the state.
