Calls for resignation of the Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Alhaji Adamu Mu’Azu by top members of the party have continued unabated as the governor of Niger State, Babangida Aliyu also urged him to resign.
Babangida said Mu’Azu should emulate the British political leaders, who resigned after leading their party to defeat in Thursday’s election.
The governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose had earlier made the call of Mu’Azu, contending that the PDP Chairman should not stay a day longer in office as the Labour Party in Britain had shown example by resigning after leading his party to failure in the just concluded general election in Britain.
The Niger State governor, however, gave the advice in Dutse at the inauguration of a township road named after the then “G7 Governors’’ by Gov. Sule Lamido of Jigawa.
He said that any leader, who led his political party to defeat, like it happened to Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) supposed to resign.
‘’It is unfortunate that people had to be called to resign.
“The leaders are supposed to voluntarily resign their positions for the loss at the just concluded general elections.
‘It is unfair that they are threatening to form a factional PDP because they were asked to resign,” he said.
Babangida said morality and principle were key attributes the PDP must imbibe to succeed for future elections.
According to him, what happened in the United Kingdom election on Thursday was a reflection of morality and principle, which must be brought to the Nigerian polity.
