Suffering from post-election defeat, the National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Adamu Mu’azu is currently undergoing medical attention abroad, a spokesman has said.
Tony Amadi who is the Press Secretary to Mu’azu said the chairman would return to the country as soon as his doctors are satisfied with his medical condition.
He added that Mu’azu left the country last week and hopes to be back soon.
The whereabouts of the National chairman has been a dominating issue following numerous calls for his removal from his position from some members of his party.
Media reports suggest Muazu, might have jetted out of the country to evade being forced to convene a meeting of the National Executive Committee (NEC) of the party, where he may be akin to resign.
His spokesman Amadi has however said “The leader of the party, President Jonathan, the Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the party Chief Tony Anenih and Senate President Senator David Mark and members of the National Working Committee of the party are all aware of the Chairman’s medical trip abroad.”
Muazu has been under intense pressure to quit his position, as the party Chairman following the PDP’s poor showing in the March – April 2015 general election.
The party’s leadership had blamed the state governors elected on the platform of the PDP, and some other leaders, for its electoral failure.
Muazu has appealed to party faithfuls to be patient as the travails facing the party will soon wither away and the party will be a united opposition to the incoming All Progressive Congress for the overall good of Nigeria.
