Our correspondent reports that upon expiration of the tenure of elected executives of the party in the state, ousted national chairman of the party, Alhaji Bamanga Tukur, last year constituted a caretaker committee for the state with Dr. Hassan Kafayos as chairman.
 Our correspondent further reports that the defection of the governor ended the internal wrangling in the party as members of his Kwankwasiya group followed him to his new party.  The development closed the chapter of rivalry between his group and those loyal to Ambassador Aminu Wali
 A source in the party said the fresh crisis was ignited by the defection of former governor of the state, Mallam Ibrahim Shekarau to the party from the APC.
The crisis got to its peak on Wednesday when nine out of the 11 members of the caretaker committee invited newsmen to a hotel, where they were about to announce their resignation before a stalwart of the party from Abuja appealed to them to hold on.
However, later in the day, deputy chairman of the caretaker committee, Alhaji Shehu Wada Sagagi, in a letter addressed to the national chairman of the party, said members of the caretaker committee had unanimously resigned their appointments.
He said they resolved to resign their appointments at a meeting on Wednesday attended by all members of the committee, excluding the caretaker committee chairman, Dr. Hassan Kafayos.
According to him, the decision became necessary taking into cognisance the developments of recent time. Sagagi, who chaired the meeting said though their chairman was not part of the meeting, he was fully in support of the decision reached at the meeting.
When our correspondent contacted Sagagi as to why they resigned their appointments, he declined comment, saying “You will know later”.
Chairman of the caretaker committee, Dr. Hassan Kafayos, on his part, said he was not aware of the resignations, saying “ I am yet to hear from them and the national secretariat”.
