How Jonathan Struck Deal With PDP NWC Members And Force Mua’zu, Anenih To Resign
Indications emerged last night that the President struck a deal with members of the National Working Committee (NWC) to force the ex-National Chairman of the party, Alhaji Adamu Muazu, to resign.
Part of the deal was a pledge not to sack the NWC alongside Muazu.
It was gathered that the sealing of the deal made Secondus to declare that NWC members would not resign now.
A highly-placed party source said: “There was an understanding with the presidency that Muazu would go, but NWC members would remain for strategic reasons. Having fulfilled our own part of the bargain, the President is also keeping to it.
“This was the context in which Secondus spoke at the Presidential Villa on Thursday when he said NWC members would not resign. It is part of politics; there is nothing we can do.
“The alternative is for all the NWC members to go in one swoop which will create a big vacuum in the party.”
Responding to a question, the source added: “If the NWC members have their way, they will want to serve their full term in office before leaving. Or else, the party will be faced with litigations which may threaten its survival.”
