“He (Mr. Tukur) is not guilty of any offence and I am going to give him an assignment that is tougher than PDP chairman,” the president said.
The president is also said to have declared that he would give the ousted chairman another position even more challenging than the previous one.
Governor Liyel Imoke of Cross River moved the motion to accept Mr. Tukur’s resignation, which was accepted by the NEC.
The president handed over Mr. Tukur’s resignation letter to the National Secretary of the party, Wale Oladipo, at the ongoing National Executive Committee, NEC, meeting in Abuja.
Alhaji Tukur’s resignation is said to have been officially announced by President Goodluck Jonathan during the ongoing PDP National Executive Council (NEC) meeting.
After about 2 days of a confusing back and forth, Bamanga Tukur is said to have finally resigned from his position as the National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
