Abuja - The National Treasurer of the 'New' Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Tanko Isiaku Gwamna, has resigned from the faction’s National Working Committee.
This resignation is contained in a press statement he issued in Abuja on Sunday.
Gwamna said he resigned after a careful study of the unfolding events in the polity, and a deep reflection of the consequences of such impasse on the party.
"This decision was arrived at after a careful study of the unfolding events in the polity and a deep sober reflection of the consequences of the outcome of such impasse on our party,’’ he said.
According to him, as a lover of democracy, he is of the belief that the impasse will not augur well for the unity, peace, progress and prosperity of the party in particular, and the nation in general.
Gwamna, who pledged his loyalty to the Bamanga Tukur-led PDP, called on all party faithful to unite and ensure the amicable resolution of the current impasse in the party.
"Our desire is for the PDP to continue to lead while others follow, as such, we must eschew all vices capable of unnecessarily heating up the polity.
"I pledge my loyalty to the Bamanga Tukur leadership, while calling on all party faithfuls to do same,’’ he said.
