North-East threatens to pull out of PDP over national chairmanship

25 November 2015, 16:04

Abuja - Members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) from the North-East Zone have threatened to pull out from the party, reports Daily Trust.

Members of the party are not happy that the party leadership has failed to organise a bye-election to fill the vacant position of the National Chairman of the party, which has already been zoned to the region.

Former Special Adviser on Political Matters to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, Ahmed Gulak, who spoke on behalf of other members of the party from the North-East, said it was wrong for some leaders of the party to exclude a whole region of the country from the leadership positions of the party.

Gulak, an aspirant for the position, warned that the party’s quest to redefine itself ahead of the 2019 elections may fail if the party refused to respect its constitution.

He recalled that immediately after the party lost the March 28 presidential election, its then chairman, Adamu Mu’azu, resigned his position, adding that the party’s constitution has made it clear that somebody from the North-East, where the former chair hailed from, should be appointed to replace him.
