National Chairman of the ruling Peoples Democratic Party, Alhaji Adamu Mu’azu has said he is doing his best to make sure that President Goodluck Jonathan wins the March 28 Presidential election.
Mu’azu is being criticized for not doing enough to sell the candidature of the President in the northern part of the country where he hails from.
Apart from not embarking on campaigns different from the ones organised by the party’s Presidential Campaign Council in the states, he’s also being criticized for allegedly not speaking against the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Maj. Gen. Muhammadu Buhari(retd.).
Like Mu’azu, Buhari is from the northern part of the country.
The former governor of Bauchi State however insisted that he has been working tirelessly for the re-election of the President, adding that he had been doing this in conjunction with the party’s Presidential Campaign Council.
Speaking through his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Tony Amadi, Mu’azu also said there was no need for him to embark on any private campaign apart from the one organised by the party.
Amadi, who spoke with our correspondent on the telephone, said, “He’s working with the presidential campaign directorate. He doesn’t need to organize his own campaign.
“He’s Also doing a lot of working to reconcile warring factions of the party in his state. He doesn’t rattle around unlike others. He also doesn’t go about with retinue of journalists to do his job.
“The chairman is fully committed to the re-election of the President and he has been working well for this.”
Also, the National Publicity Secretary of the ruling party, Mr. Olisa Metuh said as one of the founding fathers of the PDP, Mu’azu has continued to add immense value with his mature and decent approach to issues in keeping with the tradition and vision of our great party.
He said this disposition has continued to attract massive support across board for the party’s presidential flag bearer, President Jonathan.
