The immediate past National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Bamanga Tukur has expressed the confidence that his successor, Alhaji Adamu Mu’azu, will unite the dissenting groups within the party.
In a statement he issued on Tuesday, Tukur, who was conspicuously absent at Mu’azu’s inauguration on Monday, said the former Bauchi governor’s emergence as party chairman was a clear manifestation of his unique leadership qualities, visionary and purposeful disposition as well as his immeasurable contributions to the growth of the PDP.
He said, “This new appointment is a call to serve your fatherland, which bestows great responsibility on your shoulders.
“I am confident that you will not only discharge your duties effectively, but will leave an indelible mark in the area of rebuilding the party in line with the transformation agenda of Mr. President.
“It is my sincere prayer that the Almighty Allah will endow you with wisdom to bring these positive and result-oriented qualities to bear as you assume the leadership of our great party”.
