The Niger chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has adopted Sen. Zaynab Kure, wife of late Gov. Abdulkadir Kure, as its leader.
This is contained in a statement by Mr Suleiman Aliyu, the state PDP Publicity Secretary on Tuesday in Minna.
Aliyu said that the decision was taken during a stakeholder meeting in Minna, adding Kure had automatically replaced former Gov. Babangida Aliyu, as the party leader in the state.
The PDP had repeatedly accused the former governor of anti-party activities, leading to crisis in the state.
Kure has in September replaced Aliyu on the PDP Board of Trustees (BoT), as North Central representative.
