bamanga_tukur_The rumoured sudden resignation of the National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaj Bamanga Tukur, has been dismissed by one of his aides as well as the National Publicity Secretary of the party, Chief Olisa Metuh.

Tukur’s alleged resignation filtered around the Wadata Plaza National Secretariat of the Party on Tuesday afternoon but in his reaction, Metuh said, “I am not aware that the national chairman is taking an inventory of items in his office. His office is locked.

“I am also not aware of any resignation. NWC members are unaware. Why will he resign? What for? I was with him today before he travelled out, he did not tell me anything.”

Also, dispelling Tukur’s resignation rumour, his Special Assistant on Special Duties, Dr. A .Y. Ahmad said his boss was on a national assignment to Canada on the invitation of the Nigerian Ambassador to the North American country, Chief Ojo Madueke.

Ahmad’s position was contained in a statement which noted that Tukur left Nigeria in peace with nothing whatsoever to lend credence to any rumour about his resignation.

The statement reads: “The speculation is part of the machinations of some faceless, treacherous and wicked individuals who are aiming to profit from misleading innocent members of the party and Nigerians in general for no sane reason.

“The national chairman is a national and an international figure. He has been working hard to ensure the re-positioning of PDP for future challenges and so had no plan to resign as being suggested by some sworn enemies of the party.”
