Mu’azu’s appointment as PDP chairman already yielding results – FCT Minister

PDP Manifesto word cloud

Minister says Mr. Mu’azu is transforming PDP.

The Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Bala Mohammed, on Saturday said that the appointment of former Bauchi State governor, Adamu Muazu, as the National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has started yielding positive results.

Fielding questions from newsmen at a civic reception organised in honour of Mr. Muazu in Bauchi, the minister described the new chairman as a “catalyst” for the transformation of the party.

He said Mr. Muazu’s ability was already creating the desired impact, especially in the area of re-building the party, by reconciling all aggrieved members.

“You can see the spirit of reconciliation already penetrating across every length and breadth; you can see his energy and his pedigree already coming to bear on the polity. He has reached out to former president, former governors and all the aggrieved persons. This is a clear indication that he has the capacity to bring everybody on board,” Mr. Mohammed said.

According to the minister, the emergence of Mr. Mua’zu as the party’s national chairman, is not unexpected, considering his pedigree.

“His emergence has rekindled hope; it has reinvigorated our stamina in politics and built inter-relationships across board, irrespective of our personal interests, desires and differences. It has also dissolved all elements of suspicion, mistrust and bitterness,” he added.

The minister said that Bauchi State, being the home of the party chairman, has now been saddled with an uphill task of ensuring the success of the party in the forthcoming elections.

“We cannot, in pursuits of personal interests, create an impediment to the success of the national chairman. We have therefore agreed to suspend personal interests for the interest of the state and the country at large. This has become necessary so that we can do politics without rancour, division, suspicion or conflict,” he said.
