People’s Democratic Party (PDP) stakeholders from North West Zone has advised President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan to as a matter of urgency remove from office the National Chairman of PDP , Alhaji Adamu Muazu for what they called incompetent leadership that has led to the present conflict in the ruling party.
Spokesperson ,Alhaji Ibrahim Suleiman Zango gave the advice in a statement in Kaduna and stated that the current conflict between PDP Senators and the Presidency was a result of the inability of Muazu to resolve the issue as the chairman of the party amicably.
He explained that the current political instability in PDP could spell doom for the ruling party in the forthcoming 2015 general elections if not properly managed and handled by a competent leader like Bamaga Tukur.
Suleiman Zango also noted that the present PDP national chairman was unconstitutionally imposed as leader of the party to replace Tukur without proper consultation with stakeholders of the party.
The PDP chieftain from the North West Zone also stated that the massive defection of PDP members in the National assembly to the opposition All Progressives Congress,APC was as a result of the incompetent leadership of Muazu and his failure to reconcile aggrieved members of the PDP.
He also observed that the planned decamping of more PDP legislators in the national assembly from the North to the opposition party was aggravated by the inability of Muazu to initiate dialogue and resolve the crisis before it affects the chances of the party in the 2015 general elections.
He urged President Goodluck Jonathan to immediately return Bamanga Tukur to his position as the Party National Chairman, and failure to do so will cause him to lose the presidency in 2015. He added that Tukur was the bonafide chairman duly elected and recognized by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
