bamanga tukurThe National Chairman of the Peoples’ Democratic Party, PDP, Alhaji Bamanga Tukur, on Tuesday debunked media reports that President Goodluck Jonathan had asked him to resign.

“It is not true that I am resigning; resign for what? It is not true at all”, Tukur told State House Correspondents in Abuja.

Tukur spoke after a meeting of the party’s National Working Committee (NWC) with the President at the Presidential Villa in Abuja.

He said, “We are here to run the PDP and we have done so and we will continue to run the PDP.”

Tukur, however, told reporters that some members of the NWC whose elections did not follow the due process had been asked to resign from their offices.

According to Tukur, his office, that of the National Financial Secretary and the National Auditor were not affected by the directive.

Also, no affected is the Office of the National Secretary which was vacant due to litigation.

“The meeting is about regularising the family of PDP; there was an INEC’s observation that some of the members of the NWC were not properly elected, so it has to be regularised.

“Those who have not been elected will resign and they will go back. They will have the opportunity to regularise it.

“About eight people are affected while three people are not affected.

“They are the National Chairman, the National Financial Secretary, the National Auditor and of course, the National Secretary which is vacant now.

“The other eight people, all the deputies, and ex-officios and the rest of them whose election in the convention was not voted for are affected,” he stressed.
