*Set To Determine Mu’Azu’s Fate Tonight
A bleak future now awaits the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as emerging signals from different caucuses of members are pointing towards a possible break-up of the party in no distant future.
Indication to this emerged earlier today as state governors on the platform of PDP are insisting that its National Chairman, Alhaji Adamu Mu’Azu must resign on the basis of his alleged compromises which to them made the PDP to lose the Presidential election.
The governors had held a meeting last week in Abuja where they drew the battle line with Mu’Azu, just as they barred him from attending the meeting for which they refused to invite him.
They had met with President Jonathan after the meeting, intimating him about their plan to ensure the ouster of Mu’Azu as the PDP Chairman as a step towards a full re-organisation of the PDP.
It was however gathered that some of the governors are already in Abuja for a fresh meeting called by the PDP Governors Forum Chairman, Senator-elect, Godswill Obot Akpabio to determine Mu’Azu’s fate.
The meeting, it was learnt, will hold at the Akwa Ibom Governors Lodge, Asokoro, Abuja later in the evening.
According to plans, the PDP governors will again proceed to the Presidential Villa to brief President Jonathan on the agenda they have for reviving the decaying party.
It was further learnt that the governors have started working on a plan B to handle the crises within the PDP with a resolve that many of them will move out of the party to form a new political platform.
Attempt to break-up the PDP in a similar manner in the past had failed, whereas members who left the party to form the New PDP as a platform, eventually dissolved into the All Progressives Congress (APC).
According to reports, the governors may execute the “Plan B” in the event of Mu’Azu’s refusal to resign, most essentially before the exit of President Goodluck Jonathan.
The PDP Chairman who quietly left the country for tour of Europe last Saturday had told party members that he would not resign, while efforts being made to push him off his seat will fail.
He had equally predicted to his supporters in confidence that the PDP will break-up in the event that he was forced out of office, contending that the party cannot really sustain its style of using and dumping its leaders.
Meanwhile, there are insinuations that Mu’Azu is keen on holding on to his office in PDP as a measure of upping his political profile ahead of 2019, when he would have been fully prepared to contest the presidential election on the platform of PDP.
President Goodluck Jonathan, according to reports has not been happy with the turn of events in the party as he is said to be appealing to top members to intervene by appealing to warring parties to sheath swords.
