Jonathan confirms Tukur’s resignation, says new PDP Chairman to be announced Monday

The president said he will give Mr. Tukur a better appointment.

President Goodluck Jonathan has announced that Bamanga Tukur has resigned his position as the National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

The president handed over Mr. Tukur’s resignation letter to the National Secretary of the party, Wale Oladipo, at the ongoing National Executive Committee, NEC, meeting in Abuja.

“He (Mr. Tukur) is not guilty of any offence and I am going to give him an assignment that is tougher than PDP chairman,” the president said.

Mr. Jonathan also said the PDP will hold another NEC meeting next week Monday to announce a new chairman.

Governor Liyel Imoke of Cross River moved the motion to accept Mr. Tukur’s resignation. The motion was seconded by the Deputy Senate Leader, Abdul Ningi, and was accepted by the NEC.
