Pro-Jang Governors Move To Stop Tukur’s Sack
While Presidential Goodluck Jonathan may have given approval for the sack of the National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP), Alhaji bamanga Tukur and other members of the National Working Committee (NWC) as recommended by a presidential committee set up by the President, it emerged Monday that the faction of the Nigeria Governors’ Forum (NGF) loyal to Plateau State Governor, Jonah Jang, had begun moves to stop the chairman’s sack.
The high powered committee set up to look into the crisis in the party, had on Monday submitted its report to President Jonathan recommending the resignation of the party’s National Chairman, Alhaji Tukur and all National Working Committee (NWC) members at the National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting of the party on Thursday
But a select committee of PDP governors, including a governor in one of the North Central states, had begun immediate campaign against moves by some PDP governors to remove Tukur at Thursday’s NEC meeting.
The NEC meeting was one of the requests tabled before the PDP NWC meeting at the party’s Presidential Campaign Office in Legacy House in Abuja Monday.
However, some PDP governors still angry with Tukur on account of his leadership style and the circumstances surrounding his election as party chairman, were still in strong league with some National Assembly members and state chairmen of the party to ignite the move against Tukur at the NEC meeting.
