PDP Chairman Adamu Mu’azu Resigns Amidst Pressure


The embattled PDP Charmain Adamu Mu’azu, has resigned his appointment.

He resigned on Wednesday afternoon on health grounds, according to Channels Television.

Adamu Mu’azu who is a former governor of Bauchi State, was known to have travelled to Singapore to seek medical attention and it is not known if he has returned.

There has been strident agitation for Mu’azu’s resignation since the end of the 2015 election in which the PDP performed poorly.

Ekiti State Governor Ayodele Fayose led the campaign for Mu’azu’s resignation, saying having led the party into an election where it recorded a massive defeat, he should resign honourably.

Fayose cited the example of British party leaders Ed Miliband and Nick Clegg who resigned immediately their parties suffered a defeat in the recent British parliamentary election.

President Goodluck Jonathan was trounced by Muhammadu Buhari of the opposition All Progressives Congress in the March 28 presidential election.

The president lost to Buhari mostly in the states in the North-west and North-east, which included Mu’azu’s Bauchi homestate, which also paraded a PDP Governor Isa Yuguda and Federal Capital Territory Minister, Senator Bala Mohammed.

Incidentally, President Jonathan used to call Mu’azu fondly as the ‘Game Changer’.

There have been recriminations among PDP stalwarts over who should take the blame for the party’s defeat in the election..

With Adamu Mu’azu’s resignation, the heat would be on other members of the party’s National Working Committee to resign as well as many have also been calling on them to resign..
