Bamanga-Tukur2The national chairman of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Alhaji Bamanga Tukur, Wednesday, dismissed threats by some members that the party will die a natural death and they will help in burying it, saying the party has come to stay as an institution and cannot die.

Tukur said that like democracy, as propounded by Socrates, which outlived him and became universally acceptable, PDP will outlive those he accused as wishing it premature death and gain more recognition worldwide as the largest political party on the African continent.

Tukur, who made this known in a statement by his Special Assistant, Media, Prince Oliver Okpala, said: “It is unfortunate that in Nigeria, like in other advanced countries, orientation courses, seminars and retreats are not organised for elected governors to help reform and remodel them into being politically and socially civil in their public utterances, mode of dressing, social comportment and the norms of the society as against their past indoctrination and behaviour.

“This lacuna in our political structure has allowed elected governors to behave and talk in ways that desecrate the sanctity of the office of governor of states that they were elected to hold.”

Information Nigeria recalls that following the visit of PDP governors to former military Heads of State, Generals  Ibrahim Babangida and Abdulsalam Abubakar in Minna, Niger State on Monday, Governor Murtala Nyako of Adamawa state reportedly said if their consultations aimed at saving the party from imminent collapse failed, they will watch it die and also help in burying it.
