PDP chair Muazu absolves self from poll defeat

2015-05-06 08:46

Abuja - The National Chairman of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Ahmadu Adamu Muazu, has denied suggestions he was responsible for the party's loss in the last presidential elections.

The PDP chairman, reacting to media reports, said he is was a founding member of the party who strongly believed in its principles and ideologies.

“I have repeatedly reminded many that I, Ahmadu Adamu Muazu have been in the PDP since 1999 as a matter of principle and strong ideology," said Muazu.

Those who insinuate that I did not do my best for our great party and President Goodluck Jonathan during election are being economical with the truth. In the face of abuse, insult and open ridicule by our friends and brothers we supported our leader President Jonathan faithfully,” Muazu said.

He added that he gave his best to the campaign of Jonathan but the perception of President and the party in the north was very low because of the lies some politicians he said told.

He asked those blaming him for not delivering maximum votes to the president in the north not to forget that "it is the people who vote."

“I have always preached against ethnicity and tribalism and the voting pattern in the election was a concern to me personally. I will support President Jonathan again and again if the opportunity presents itself."

He said the unity of Nigeria to him was greater than sectional or ethnic interests.

"I can never regret supporting our leader President Jonathan. If I had my way, everyone in my state (Bauchi) would have voted for President Jonathan but it's the people that vote not me.”
