The Niger state Governor, Babangida Aliyu on Saturday joined Ekiti state governor Ayodele Fayose to call for the resignation of the National Chairman of Peoples Democratic Party, Adamu Muazu, accusing him of planning to create a faction should the PDP governors insist on his removal.Aliyu who made this known in Dutse, Jigawa State capital, at the inauguration of a township road named after the then ‘G7 Governors’ by Jigawa State Governor, Sule Lamido.
He said any leader, who led his political party to a defeat, like it happened to the PDP, was expected to resign.
“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.”
The governor noted that morality and principle were key attributes the PDP must imbibe to succeed for future elections.
According to him, what happened in the United Kingdom election on Thursday was a reflection of morality and principle, which must be brought to the Nigerian polity.
Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State had engaged PDP National Chairman, Mr. Adamu Mu’azu, in a war of words over the defeat of the party in the 2015 general elections, calling on Mu’azu and others in the party’s National Working Committee to resign.
