Please leave us, PDP govs tell Mu’azu



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.

    This is what I expected PDP to do since once election ended and Mu’azu did not wisely resign. I have said it on this same platform before that you cannot lose the presidency after 16 years and the seats in the house and senate, and still have the same party chair. Its highly inadvisable. It will be the end of the party as we know it.

    Here, people like to get their arse kicked before they move. Most are lacking in self-worth. So?
