PDP flags used to illustrate the story.

Former Emir of Bakura in Zamfara State, Hassan Marafa, has emerged as the Deputy Chairman of the state chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Mr Marafa emerged during the party’s state congress held in Gusau, the state capital on Monday.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Mr Marafa was appointed Emir of Bakura in 2010 by former governor, Aliyu Mamuda, but was removed by the immediate past governor, Abdulaziz Yari, who replaced him with the current Emir, Bello Sani.

Mr Marafa would now deputise for the chairman, Ibrahim Mallaha, who was re-elected for second term during the state congress of the party, supervised by the former Niger governor, Babangida Aliyu.
