Abuja - The National Chairman of the People's Democratic Party (PDP), Adamu Mu’azu, has accused the opposition All Progressives Congress (APC) of spreading untruthful reports suggesting his resignation.
He said the reports were aimed at distracting the electorate ahead of the forthcoming election.
"Having seen the sign of victory for the ruling party, they have resorted to creating malicious and baseless stories of the resignation of the national chairman, who remains their major nightmare," he argued.

“APC is too scared of Muazu the game changer. Having noticed the dramatic change of tides and the eminent sign of victory for the ruling party, the opposition in their usual antics have engaged their propaganda evils to create malicious and baseless stories."
Recent media reports claimed a rift between President Goodluck Jonathan and Mu’azu, who rubbished the report and restated his loyalty.
“The story is false and unfounded. The destination of Mr Muazu is the land of victory in the 2015 general election for PDP.”
