There are indications that the level of opposition to the Adamu Mu’azu led National Working Committee (NWC) is swelling by the day. Despite the call by president Good luck Jonathan for the various aggrieved groups in the party to shield their swords, the plot to sack the chairman and his NWC thickens. The governor of Niger state, Babangida Aliyu has joined his colleague, Governor Ayo Fayose of Ekiti state in calling for the resignation of the PDP chairman and the NWC in line with what happens on other democracies as was seen in the last UK elections where leaders of the parties that lost all resigned.
Governor Aliyu criticised members who are threatening to form a parallel PDP because of call for them to resign. He reminded them of the attempt by the G7 governors to form the new PDP as a result of the conflict they had with the party leadership.
He said any leader that leads his political party, in this case it’s the PDP, to defeat should resign. According to him, ‘it is unfortunate that people had to be called to resign. The leaders are supposed to voluntarily resign their positions for the loss at the just concluded general elections. It is unfair that they are threatening to form a factional PDP because they were asked to resign.
‘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.’
