I have not resigned as PDP Chairman, Tukur insists

Mr. Tukur’s fate could be decided in the next few days.

The National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Bamanga Tukur, has insisted that he has not resigned from his position.

Mr. Tukur stated this on Wednesday afternoon through his Special Adviser on Media, Olivier Okpala.

“Be informed that the national chairman has not resigned, it is all speculation,” Mr. Okpala told PREMIUM TIMES.

The spokesperson said Mr. Tukur will be at the Board of Trustees, BOT, meeting of the party on Wednesday night and will also attend the National Executive Committee meeting of the party on Thursday.

There have been reports that Mr. Tukur has resigned from his position.

A meeting of leaders of the PDP held at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, Tuesday night, to decide Mr. Tukur’s fate was inconclusive.

Vice President Namadi Sambo, who presided over Tuesday’s meeting, said it would continue by 6:00 p.m. on Wednesday.

UPDATE: At the end of the PDP caucus meeting on Wednesday night, Mr. Tukur again insisted he has not resigned.

“I’m not one to resign and you will not know,” the PDP chairman told journalists at the state House. “I have not resigned.”

Shagari, Balarabe Musa, Solomon Lar and Lateef Jakande were his classmates in Nigerian politics, why can’t Tukur resign and chop his stolen wealth. Ole. PDP is dead, take it as Gospel…

    True or False

    Deri why are you always crying over Amaech’s successes. The old man has no home in the PDP anymore. Tukur and Jonathan are on the cross road.

  • Now that the PDP and GEJ apologetics and
    advisers have all gone AWOL, it is time to use our brains and intellect. PDP party’s problem is symptomatic of its inability to appreciate
    the extent of hunger, poverty, unemployment, kidnapping and crime in the land.
    Unknown to GEJ, his Apologetics and Advisers, the GEJ and OBJ’s Presidencies
    are both children of circumstances. They came about as a result of protest
    votes from the Northern Talakawas, Minorities and Christians, Middle-belt.
    South South, South East and South West against a specific oppressor. This
    singular oppressor had ensured the employment of a day old graduate as General
    Manager of a Federal Government agency over his Seniors, who as Assistant
    Managers have put in over 20 years in Service. Ensured that no Igbo man rose to
    the position of a General in the Nigerian Army or headed the Police as an IG.
    Covered up the assassination of a thriving small Igbo trader by favoured
    competitors in most Northern villages, Ensured the fleecing of Nitel,Nepa, NNPC
    and other Federal agencies by Emirs and Traditional rulers, Political
    assassination of Southerners and Northern minorities whether through sponsored
    air crashes or other means with impunity. Shout one North during elections but
    discard Northern Christians and Minorities in the sharing of the spoils and
    positions thereafter, Use under-age children,northern immigrants, cattles and
    goats as voters during elections, Use the BBC and VOA Hausa service to
    denigrate Southern leaders like Ojukwu, Obasanjo, Awolowo, Azikwe, etc.Ensured
    that dry deserts have more inhabitants, local governments,legislators than the
    wet south.Emboldened the slaughtering of villagers by Cattle herdsmen for land
    grabbing and expansion purposes, Appropriated the position of the Chief Justice
    of Nigeria to the extent that when it fell on Justice Karibi White, he was
    posted out of the country and many more. GEJ rather than continuing OBJ;s
    legacy handed us to Tukur, who embarked on “reverse politiconology”.thereby
    making the devil to look like a saint. GEJ compounded this with massive
    officially induced corruption, fund diversion, poverty, unemployment. Whatever
    the decision, we know that the way forward is not by going back to Egypt but by
    drumming the implications of GEJ’s failures into his ears. Forget the Yorubas,
    they do not follow their leaders sheepishly. We really need a genuine National
    Conference to correct all these anomalies because if power goes back to this
    oppressors, you and my children will be dead. This is my little contribution
    for posterity.
