Mu’azu could not be reached for comments last night. A source said the situation was unclear, adding that PDP leaders were battling to stop “a major division” in the party ahead of the March 28 presidential election.

The source spoke of panic at the Presidential Villa, following Mu’azu’s “resignation”. He was quoted to have said: “I am no more part of you. Fani-Kayode and Ayo Fayose have destroyed all our campaign strategies. They have turned PDP to an opposition party.”

It was reported on Tuesday that a new crisis had broken out in the ruling party, sparked by the party’s presidential campaign organisation’s and First Lady Dame Patience Jonathan’s attacks on some of the North’s prominent politicians.

The hate campaign has ignited a row between President Jonathan and Mu’azu.

Specifically, Mu’azu and other Northern leaders in the PDP have kicked against the unrestrained vulgar attacks by the First Lady and Jonathan’s campaign spokesman, Femi Fani-Kayode, against All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate Gen. Muhammadu Buhari.

Mu’azu and other party chieftains are said to have taken exception to Mrs. Jonathan referring to Gen. Buhari as being “brain dead”
