At the convention ground this afternoon ,it was announced all  except aspirant for the of National Chairman of the Party withdrawn .Bamanga Tukur, widely believed the President Goodluck Jonathan’s anointed party chairman is the only in the race.Jonathan appears learnt from Obasanjo’s way of muscling his way through  while he was president in Nigeria’s recent past.

Earlier, a report said even Dr Musa Babayo who won the chairmanship contest from Tukur’s North East zone had been prevailed upon withdraw from the race.By implication the villa has decided ride  roughshod over the will of the people by imposing its candidate.But has happened may be seen as  repeat  of occurred  in 1998/99 when the North worked for the election of General Olusegun Obasanjo despite the fact the South West people rejected him at the polls.
