A Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, chieftain in Bauchi State, Bibi Dogo, has urged the ex-National Chairman of the party, Alhaji Adamu Mu’azu, to account for his stewardship of the party as one of the ways to strengthen the country’s democracy.
Dogo, who described Mu’azu’s resignation as a welcome development, told newsmen in Bauchi, yesterday, that the National Working Committee, NWC, should also account for their actions before and during the elections, especially in relation to the N9 billion allegedly realized from the sale of nomination and expression of interest forms.
He said: “Mu’azu should come back and hand over officially, because we learned from the National Publicity Secretary, Oliseh Metuh, that the party realised N9 billion from the sale of forms.
“He should give an account of his actions and the money because it is public fund”.
Dogo said PDP could not have achieved any further successes with Mu’azu as its chairman.
“We welcome his resignation because that is what PDP members had been fighting for before the election.
“Even though the Board of Trustee, BoT, Chairman, Tony Anenih, has resigned too, it is not enough because all the NWC, state, local govern-ment and ward executives should also resign to enable us restructure the party and achieve success.
“I can vividly recall that I drew the attention of President Goodluck Jonathan to the fact that Mu’azu was not capable of winning the election for the party and that his continued stay in office would lead to the party’s defeat, but he neglected my advice and now the truth has finally come out.
“If we work hard, PDP will bounce back in 2019”.
Dogo also opposed the imposition of candidates in the party, saying that it was a major factor that contributed to its woeful defeat during the last general elections in the country.
Dogo further expressed optimism that most of the governors-elect, who were PDP members but defected to the All Progressives Congress, APC, because of imposition of leaders, would definitely come back once the party was restructured.

“The challenges will no doubt present a new format as you step into the third year. These are heightened political participation, pressure to deliver more dividends of democracy and increased demands from the political system. I have no doubt that you will cope nicely.
“Please continue to make the welfare of the people your biggest concern. They are the reason for the state. Without them there will be no government or any political office to occupy.
