Governor of Niger State, Babangida Aliyu, on Saturday called on the National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Adamu Mu’azu to resign.
He made the call in Dutse, Jigawa State during the inauguration of a township road named after the then ‘G7 governors’ by Governor Sule Lamido.
Aliyu said any leader who presides over his party’s defeat, like it happened in PDP, should ordinarily 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 election,” he said.
“It is unfair that they are threatening to form a factional PDP because they were asked to resign.”
According to the Governor, morality and principle were key attributes that the PDP must imbibe to succeed at future elections, adding that the nation’s politics would receive tremendous boost if Nigerian politicians emulate their counterparts in the United Kingdom.
