In what many would call “hard times” for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), the National Chairman of the party Adamu Mu’azu, is set to resign his position as the party leader. According to sources, the chairman was advised by friends and associates during a meeting on Tuesday to resign his position.
Indications that he had told members of the party’s National Working Committee, NWC, of his decision, emerged early Wednesday when the spokesperson of the party, Olisa Metuh, told reporters at the party’s head office in Abuja to expect a “breaking news” briefing from him later in the day.
Our source also said apart from Mr. Mu’azu, the chairman of the party’s board of trustees, Tony Anenih, is also resigning today.
Top members of the party including Governors have been calling on the NWC members to resign their positions for leading the party to its most disastrous outing since 1998.
The PDP has been enmeshed in crisis since losing the presidential election which held March 28.
The party also lost most of its states especially in the north to the All Progressives Congress, APC.
The APC has also snatched the majority number of seat in the two chambers of the National Assembly.
