The National Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Olisa Metuh has denied reports that some members of the party are demanding the resignation of National Chairman, Adamu Mu’azu.

Metuh also denied that members of the PDP National Working Committee were under pressure to resign.

The PDP spokesperson stated this via a statement released on Thursday, April 30, 2015.

The statement reads:

 “For the avoidance of doubt therefore, the NWC states that at no time was the National Chairman of our great party, Ahmed Adamu Mu’azu walked out of the meeting of the governors, neither was he in any way ill-treated at that meeting contrary to reports in some section of the media.”

“To put the records straight, our National Chairman upon invitation by the governors attended the meeting alongside our Deputy National Chairman, Prince Uche Secondus and National Legal Adviser, Barr. Victor Kwon and left after a brief and fruitful discussion with the governors. He was not at any time asked to resign and nothing close to such was ever insinuated at the meeting.”

“For purposes of clarification, the National Working Committee as a duly elected organ of the party has a constitutionally guaranteed tenure which expires in March 2016. It is therefore focused on galvanizing every organ and interests within the PDP with a view to re-engineering it for the task ahead.”

Earlier reports had it that Mu’azu and members of the NWC were being pressured to resign due to the defeat suffered by the PDP in the recently concluded elections.
