National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Alhaji Adamu Mu’azu, has responded to calls by the South West caucus of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as well as the PDP Governors’ Forum for him along with other members of the National Working Committee (NWC) of the party tostep down.
Leading the call for Mu’azu’s resignation has been the Ekiti State Governor, Ayo Fayose who, who in addition to telling Mu’azu to resign as chairman of the party, reportedly also threatened to openly disclose incriminating evidence showing that the Bauchi politician had dealings with the opposition APC which led to the defeat of the PDP.
However, responding via his Twitter handle (@muazuaa), the PDP NWC chairman dared the Ekiti State Governor, Fayose, to disclose evidence of his collaboration with the All Progressives Congress (APC) at the general elections.
“We challenge Governor Fayose to come out with the evidence that shows National Chairman worked for APC during the elections,” said Mu’azu.
Mu’azu followed up with a dig at the Ekiti governor: “We hope it’s not the kind of evidence he once said he had that Buhari was dying?” in apparent reference to Fayose’s allegation few days to the presidential elections that the then APC presidential candidate, General Muhammadu Buhari, had a terminal illness and was lying critically ill at a London hospital.
