The National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Dr. Ahmadu Adamu Mu’azu, has warned top party members rooting for the dissolution of the current National Working Committee (NWC) of the party to desist from the act, saying such people are “risking their own political careers.”
Mu’azu also warned that those campaigners are also “dragging President Goodluck Jonathan’s image into the scrap heap of history, thinking that they are acting in his favour.”
The PDP chair dropped the warning in a statement made available, on Tuesday, by his Chief Press Secretary, Chief Tony Amadi, in Abuja.
He said: “Top party men rooting for the dismemberment of the current National Working Committee (NWC) of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) are hereby warned that they are not only risking their own political careers but are dragging President Jonathan’s image into the scrap heap of history, thinking that they are acting in his favour but indeed destroying his legacy.
“Mr President is being hailed world-wide for his historic conduct of a free and fair election in Nigeria and conceding power to the incoming President-elect General Muhammadu Buhari, while a coterie of his aides are working to diminish his newly acquired world statesmanship status because they are scared of the consequences of losing federal power.
“They are also endangering the future of the political party that brought them to prominence when they should be concerned with working together with party leadership to rebuild the Peoples Democratic Party. The same party leaders that thought it fit to make President Jonathan the sole Presidential candidate of the party in the recent general election they are indirectly harming not only his political future but the cherished legacy he was leaving behind after a momentous six years in office as President of Nigeria.
“When you remove the engine room of the party, what you have left is a party that is finished, they can’t move, can’t plan and above all can’t win elections. No matter what level of defeat that has occurred, the PDP can still win in 2019 if we get our act together, perform creditably in opposition and convince Nigerians that we are ready again for governance.”
He said that the current NWC under his leadership is in the best position to revamp and consolidate the party for the role because of the individual and collective expertise.
“The National Working Committee needs the support of well meaning party members particularly in view of the political maturity they displayed when they were sidelined by the same presidential aides.
“It is not in the interest of our great party for presidential advisers to disrupt the party machinery and render it rudderless as those fighting the MU’AZU-led NWC are currently doing. The same go for out going or incoming governors who should be working harder to return the PDP to power in four years time.
“The anti-MU’AZU campaigners are harming the President, the party and their own political future. It is on record that senators, honourable members and the party supremos across the states recently passed a vote of confidence on the Chairman and members of the National Working Committee of the PDP. For those who don’t know, to survive a vote of confidence is the highest test in political leadership, therefore all genuine members of the party should work with the leadership to bring the party back to the top and in its winning ways once again.
“A word is enough for the wise. The party under Dr. Ahmadu Adamu MU’AZU and the current NWC are is good hands. Those fighting their party leadership for no just cause deserve to be sent to gulag archipelago for full reformation and restoration,” he said.
‘It is disingenuous to accuse everyone who calls for restructuring as trying to break up the county. History tells us that that kind of cheap blackmail will not work as long as the underlying reasons for the agitations persist.’
‘The biggest challenge seems to be that we seem to be allowing moderate voices on this issue to be drowned out by the reckless utterances of a few rabble rousers on all sides who may be tools in the hands of those who do not wish this country well. These are some of the people who arrogate to themselves the toga of spokespersons of our diverse groups.’
