The National Working Committee (NWC) of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has accepted the voluntary resignation of the National Chairman of the party, Ahmadu Adamu Mu’azu.
The party made this known in a statement signed by the National Secretary, Wale Oladipo following the NWC’s 399th meeting today.
Mu’azu was said to have tendered his resignation letter, citing health grounds as his reason. Chief Uche Secondus, the Deputy National Chairman, has taken over, in line with the provisions of sections 45 (2) of the PDP constitution.
The NWC, however, expressed complete confidence of the party in the National Publicity Secretary, Chief Olisa Metuh and commended him for his outstanding performance, exemplary commitment and sacrifices, particularly in the ways and manner with which he conducts the affairs of the Publicity Directorate in projecting the positive image of the party and its government.
Members and other critical stakeholders, including the media have been urged by the party to be understanding “at this time of reengineering process in our great party while directing any member with genuine grievance to channel such through the appropriate organs.”
