The Peoples Democratic Party led by President Goodluck Jonathan has selected a new national chairman to replace the embattled former national chairman, Bamanga Tukur whose tenure ended unceremoniously.
The newly appointed national chairman of the PDP is a former governor of Bauchi State, Alhaji Adamu Mu’azu who has some questions to answer on misappropriation of funds and corruption.
Mu’azu was selected as the consensus candidate after a meeting of the President and governors from the party at the presidential villa in Abuja.
It is said that Mu’azu is not the First Lady’s preferred candidate. The Firsty Lady Patience Jonathan had wanted Mohammed Wakil to become the national chairman of the PDP. But the governors were at a divergence with her choice.
The governors accused the First lady’s candidate of obduracy and inability to carry people along when he was a principal officer of the house.
