Aminu Tambuwal, the Governor of Sokoto, has denied resigning as the chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Governors Forum, according to the party.
There were claims earlier on Thursday that Seyi Makinde, the governor of Oyo, had taken over as the forum’s chairman after Tambuwal’s resignation.
The forum’s director-general, C.I.D. Maduabum, however, stated in a statement that Tambuwal will remain in his post while the party attempts to resolve the dilemma.
“This is to inform the general public and stakeholders of the Peoples Democratic Party that the Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party Governors Forum (PDP-GF), Rt Hon Aminu Waziri Tambuwal, CFR, has not resigned as Chairman of the Forum contrary to some media reports,” the statement reads.
“Members of the PDP Governors Forum are working behind the scenes to resolve all contending issues concerning the Party.
“To this end a meeting of the Forum will soon be convened,” he disclosed.
