The former governor of Bauchi State spoke during his inauguration at the party’s headquarters in Abuja on Monday.
“I won’t tamper with your structure in your states,” he told the powerful governors who were responsible for the untimely resignation of the former occupied of the office. Mr. Bamanga Tukur.
He also said that the party was facing difficult challenges.
Muazu said, “In the last few months,the PDP has occupied front pages of our newspapers with negative screaming headlines. Most political analysts predicted that the end of the gains has come.
“Over the years, the PDP has developed its home front internal conflict resolution mechanism. So while false prophets were professing its collapse, insiders knew that the crisis is a storm in a tea-cup.
Today, we have proven to the whole world that we had an instant cure for what looked like a terminal disease.
“There is no doubt that all as not been well with our party. However,the crisis that has rocked the party is a common phenomenon with large parties.
“I have helplessly watched the dwindling fortunes of our party from 2003 to date. From controlling a record of 28 states in 1999 down to 23 currently.
This situation is unacceptable and must change.”
