As the crisis in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) deepens, Niger State Governor Babangida Aliyu has echoed the words of Ekiti State Governor, Ayo Fayose, calling for the national chairman of the party, Adamu Mu’azu to relinquish his post following the party’s loss at the general election.
Speaking in Jigawa at the inauguration of a road named after the then G7 governors, Governor Aliyu said the party had gone past the time when leaders would have to be coerced into resigning after failing, sighting the British example where two opposition leaders resigned following their party’s loss at the recently concluded polls.
He said: “It is unfortunate that people had to be called to resign. The leaders are supposed to voluntarily resign their positions for the loss at the just concluded general elections.
“It is unfair that they are threatening to form a factional PDP because they were asked to resign”
