PDP National Chairman Alhaji Bamanga Tukur has responded to those PDP governors who are calling for his removal that, they are doing so to make President Jonathan vulnerable.
The chairman who spoke through his Special Adviser on Political Affairs, Senator Abubakar Umar Gada said; “as far as the national chairman, Alhaji Bamanga Tukur is concerned, the PDP governors are loyal to the President and the national, except for a few with hidden agenda who are nursing the plot to remove Bamanga Tukur because of their personal presidential ambition.
“This few governors that are clamouring for the removal of Tukur are doing so with a hidden agenda to make President Jonathan because of his loyalty. These governors that are clamouring for the removal of the national chairman are known with hidden presidential ambition. The plot is remove Tukur and make Jonathan vulnerable, because the national chairman is blocking their political ambition”, he said.
According to Gada; “What is the offence of the national chairman that the governors will be asking for his removal”.
“Which of these governors have asked or made a legitimate request that the national chairman did not grant their requests? What wrong has the national chairman done that a few of these governors would be asking for his head?” Gada asked.
“The only crime that Alhaji Bamanga Tukur has committed is because he is loyal to President Jonathan. Do the few PDP governors clamouring for Tukur’s removal as national chairman want a national chairman that would be disobedient to the President?
“By setting the gimmick for the removal of Tukur as national chairman, they are going to make the president vulnerable and open for attacks. But we are happy that the President is wiser and completely aware of the plots of these few governors, who see Tukur as blocking their discreet presidential ambition.”
