Those Seeking My Ouster From Office Will Fail, Says Tukur

Published

on

Tukur-1-600x433Reports by a section of the media that National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Alhaji Bamanga Tukur may be forced to resign to pave way for long lasting peace in the beleaguered ruling party has been emphatically denied by Tukur, who said sponsors of such reports would not succeed in their plot to oust him from office.

Tukur, who stated this on Monday in a statement which he personally signed, noted that his relationship with President Goodluck Jonathan and other key party stakeholders remained cordial.

He attributed the media reports to the handiwork of those he described as “black legs” within and outside the ruling party.

“I am aware of the antics of some black legs in and out of the PDP who have been funding negative media reports on activities of the party both at the state and national levels. Such antics will amount to naught because no sponsor of such reports would go far”, the national chairman said.

While expressing a firm belief that the Nigerian media have come of age in observing the tenets of the journalism profession anchored on fairness, thorough investigation and balancing of reports before publication, Tukur observed that national interest and cohesion are better promoted when the media report the truth at all times.

He expressed dismay that since he assumed office over a year ago, the media had made numerous failed predictions of his ouster based on projections of those he referred to as enemies of the party.

    All those men who kept on giving numerous conditions to the Presidency today by accusing him of not leading us right should tell us in 4 sentences how they have resolved such problems in their various states. If they say they have solutions to our national problems why not start implementations at state levels after all they owe us whatever the Presidency owe the states. I have never heard before any time that FG ceased states allocations or entitlements yet Presidency is not doing well. Easy o because we are watching.
