PDP crisis: I will not resign as chairman – Tukur insists

by ‘Jola Sotubo


Despite continuous agitation for his removal by aggrieved party members and reports that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) might “sacrifice” him for the sake of peace, National Chairman of the party, Bamanga Tukur, has said that he will not leave his position.

The aggrieved governors, termed “G7” had, before the eventual defection of 5 of them to the All Progressives Congress (APC), insisted that Tukur be removed for his dictatorial tendencies.

Tukur disclosed his resolve yesterday while addressing journalists after a meeting with Vice President, Namadi Sambo at the State House Abuja

The Telegraph reports:

Fielding questions from journalists , the PDP Chairman said that there was no basis for him to resign. He added that he was not moved by the accusations leveled against him by both the G7 governors and members of the opposition political party.

“They even say that I am a virus. Yes, I agree that I am virus, but a virus for discipline; a virus for good governance, virus for positive change and virus for all things that are good.”

“Do you resign when you know that you are doing good things? Do you resign simply because a few people are angry that you are doing positive things and they are comfortable with such good things?”

Tukur said that party chieftains would continue to talk to the aggrieved governors, adding that they would still return to the party. “Even in your home, if your wife runs away, you will always look for ways of talking.”
