National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Adamu Mu’azu, has been flown abroad, due to an ailment, his office announced Tuesday. The chairman flew out of the country last week for treatment of which, the current hospital where the chairman is being treated abroad remains undisclosed.
Tony Amadi, media aide to the chairman released a statement saying;
“The National Chairman of PDP, Dr. Ahmad Adamu Mu’azu is sick and currently undergoing medical attention abroad and will return to the country as soon as his doctors are satisfied with his medical condition. He left the country last week and hopes to be back soon,” the statement said.
“The leader of the party, President Goodluck Jonathan, the Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the party Chief Tony Anenih and Senate President Senator David Mark and members of the National Working Committee of the party are all aware of the Chairman’s medical trip abroad.”
This was to clarify a statement made by the Ekiti State Governor, Ayo Fayose, accusing the PDP chairman of secretly traveling to Singapore for treatment, during the recent elections, without informing his party’s presidential candidate, President Goodluck Jonathan.
Mr. Fayose, who spoke on Channels television, said even when the chairman traveled recently, for treatment for his left hand, he told some people he had “deceived the president”.
Mr. Fayose challenged the PDP chairman to deny his claims.
Meanwhile, the PDP chief has appealed to party members to be patient, expressing hope that “the travails facing the party will soon wither away and the party will be a united opposition to the incoming All Progressive Congress for the overall good of Nigeria”.
