As pressures continue to mount on the embattled national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Adamu Muazu to resign, a member of the party’s Board of Trustees, BoT, Iyom Josephine Anenih has advised Muazu to put the interest of the party first and step aside.
In a message to PDP faithful posted on her facebook page captioned “Put the Party First,” Iyom Anenih, who was national woman leader of the PDP, said Muazu must resign following the scandalous outing of the PDP in the last general elections “because it is the right and honourable thing to do.
“I have watched with a heavy heart the slow but almost certain destruction of our great party under the knives and axes of those entrusted with its care. One would have thought the recent heavy losses the PDP suffered at the presidential, national assembly, gubernatorial and state assemblies would be reason enough for quiet introspection, but instead our party leaders, having failed to defeat the APC, have turned to cannibals intent on devouring their own.
“Yes, we have suffered a great defeat, but within this loss lies the opportunity to rediscover what made us great in the first place. The truth is that the PDP has lost its identity; we buried it beneath the hubris and vanity that comes with unrestrained power. We boasted we would rule for 60 years; we claimed no vacancy exists in Aso Rock. How wrong we were! We have been humbled by Nigerians who trooped to their polling units and chose to follow another path.
“The national chairman and the NWC have to resign. Not because any godfather or governor is demanding that they do, but because it is the right and honourable thing. We have just emerged from the elections with the worst results we have ever recorded. The chairman is the leader of the party; he took the PDP into the general elections and now, as a matter of principle, he must step aside for others to conduct an audit of the defeat he oversaw.”
