Abuja - The emergence of Alhaji Adamu Mu'azu as the new national chairman of the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) will help to reposition the party, a member of the House of Representatives, Ossai Ossai, has said.
Ossai representing Ndokwa East/Ndokwa West/Ukwuani Constituency in Delta made this known in a telephone interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja on Monday.
He described the former Bauchi State governor as an 'experienced man’ who would use his wealth of experience to reposition the PDP.
The lawmaker said that Mu' azu was not a controversial person and would not bring down the PDP as speculated by enemies of the party.
"Mu' azu is an experienced politician and he will use his wealth of experience to reposition the party.
"As governor, he was never a controversial man in his dealings with other people or in handling the affairs of his state," he said.
He rebuffed insinuation that the new chairman would 'bury the carcass’ of the PDP, saying: "Mu'azu ruled Bauchi State for eight years without burying the state.
"I do not think he will bring the PDP down. He is an experienced politician who ruled a state before and he did not have problems.
"If he can rule a state without problems, how can he bury the PDP, nobody can bury the PDP.
"I see Mu’azu as an experienced and good person that would build and consolidate on the good fortunes of PDP," the lawmaker said.
NAN reports that Mu’azu was nominated as the new national chairman of the PDP at the 64th National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting of the party.
His emergency followed the resignation of Bamanga Tukur, the former national chairman, on January 16.
