January 14, 2014 – PDP Chairman Has Bamanga Tukur Resigned Days After Obasanjo Left The Party

Nigeria’s leading political party, Peoples Democratic Party, PDP is about to crumble days after former President Olusegun Obasanjo left the party.

If the story making round is true, then the National Chairman of the party, Alhaji Bamanga Tukur has resigned.

Why PDP Chairman Bamanga Tukur Steps Down

According to Presidency sources, the PDP chairman was forced to resign by President Jonathan during a short meeting he had with him.

As gathered, the President had reminded the embattled chairman of a letter from the Independent National Electoral Commission [INEC] stating that the national executive council of the PDP was illegally constituted. Mr. President told the embattled Chairman that the letter can be recalled into play.

Tukur however refused to step down until he became aware of the upcoming vote of no-confidence meeting coming up on Thursday January 16th, 2014 against him.

To avert the vote of no confidence, Alhaji Bamanga Tukur hurried a resignation letter – and dated his resignation for January 15, 2014 – after the Muslim holiday.

Femi Fani Kayode and Kayode Ogundamisi confirmed Tukur’s resignation on Facebook few hours ago:

“The national chairman of PDP Alhaji Bamangar Tukur has resigned. This is a step in the right direction. PDP clap for yourself” – Femi Fani Kayode said on FB

“FLASH Tukur eats his own words! Resigns? Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP Malam Bamanga Tukur is reported to have submitted his resignation letter to the PDP and the Presidency” – Kayode O said via FB

PDP party is about to crumble.

Obasanjo’s exit has caused a lot of confusion in the party.

    The National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Alhaji Bamanga Tukur, has debunked the rumour going the rounds that he had resigned from his position.
    Tukur, who is presiding over a deeply divided National Working Committee of the party, insisted that he still remains the national chairman of the party,
    A statement by his Senior Media Assistant on Media, Mr. Oliver Okpala, said his boss had not tendered any resignation letter to anyone.

    You want to blame the politicians, blame the campus student-cultist who have lost direction for the future, blame those that call themselves political thug-marshals, and after run to seek help from SCAON.
