Still upset by the defeats suffered by their party in the just concluded general elections, PDP governors are poised to take their anger out on the national chairman of the party, Alhaji Adamu Mu’azu whom they have asked to resign.
The governors who were said to have met in Abuja at the Akwa Ibom State Governor’s Lodge, Asokoro, on Tuesday, accused Mu’azu and other members of the NWC of working against the party during the general elections.
Mu’azu, his deputy national chairman, Uche Secondus; and the national Legal Adviser, Victor Kwon, were said to be present at the meeting summoned by Governor Godswill Akpabio, who is the chairman of the PDP Governors’ Forum.
Apart from being defeated in the presidential election, the ruling party also lost majority of the states in the north which was hitherto known to be its base.
Mua’zu, according to one of the governors, was shocked when he was accused of working against the party’s interest during the elections.
The governor said they told Mu’azu that he should resign with members of the NWC and allow a new set of people to pilot the affairs of the party.
