The Peoples Democratic Party has reiterated its stance that the National Chairman of the party, Alhaji Adamu Mu’azu, remains the game changer of the party.
The ruling party alleged that there were plans to rubbish Mu’azu and destabilise the party ahead of the 2015 general election, but said that such plan would not succeed.
In a statement signed by the National Publicity Secretary of the party, Chief Olisa Metuh in Abuja on Friday, PDP alleged that there were people concocting lies against Mu’azu with the aim of causing disaffection in the party.
The statement noted that Mu’azu has maintained very healthy and robust working relationship with leaders of the party at all levels across the country, which had resulted in the impressive performance posted in the last three months.
Metuh said, “It is common knowledge that since assumption of office, our National Chairman has continued to deftly apply his wealth of experience, his far-reaching connections and profound goodwill among Nigerians to stabilise and reposition our great party to the admiration of our leaders and members including President Goodluck Jonathan, members of the NWC, PDP caucus in the National Assembly, PDP governors, and our teeming supporters nation-wide, a feat for which he has been popularly dubbed the ‘Game Changer’.
“In the last three months, Mu’azu has succeeded in shaming the enemies of our party by achieving unity among our people, restoring the confidence of the members in the leadership and regaining the trust Nigerians have in the PDP as the only vehicle to deliver democracy dividends to them, a development which would not have been possible without a good working relationship with the President and our governors”.
The PDP spokesperson added that those seeking to sow seeds of discord in the party must understand that they have already failed, adding that the ruling party has emerged from its challenges stronger and more united, and shall not in anyway whatsoever, be taken off-course by such evil machinations.
“The PDP under Mu’azu as National Chairman is completely on course and shall remain the pre-eminent party wholly committed to the national interest and the welfare of all Nigerians in line with our manifesto and visions of our founding fathers”, he said.
