The National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has resigned from his position. This is coming weeks after the monumental loss of the party in the Nigeria general election which held between March – April 2015.
Although, he attributes his resignation to his failing health, it is widely known that senior officials of the party has mounted serious pressure on him to resign following the loss of the party as the party seeks to rebuild. According to reports, Mr. Muazu left the country just weeks after the elections not because of his health as he claimed but in a bid to avert a forced resignation when he convenes a meeting of the National Executive Committee (NEC) of the party.
His resignation letter was received by the party’s National Working Committee of the party according to the party spokesman, Olisa Metuh.
Alhaji Muazu has been the chairman for about a year, after he took over from Alhaji Bamanga Tukur who stepped down under intense party crisis.
His deputy, Prince Uche Secondus has since taken over the office until the party decides what is next.
