National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Bamanga Tukur has finally resigned.
According to a source who spoke with a senior member of the divided National Working Committee (NWC) of the party, the new development will be announced by President Goodluck Jonathan during a meeting of the National Caucus of the party tonight in Abuja.
With the resignation, Tukur has escaped being suspended from the party by the members of the NWC.
Nigerian Eye reports:
Tukur was to be suspended by about eight members of the NWC, while the National Executive Committee of the party would ratify his suspension on Thursday.
Meanwhile, the wife of the President, Mrs. Patience Jonathan is said to be scheming to install Tukur’s successor.
The First Lady is said to be rooting for the appointment of the Minister of Transport, Sen. Idris Umar.
His ministry is said to be under indirect supervision of the First Lady.
However, the governors are resisting the move.
