Tukur congratulates Mu’azu, pledges his support

The former National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Alhaji Bamanga Tukur, has congratulated and pledged his support to the party’s new National Chairman, Alhaji Adamu Mu’azu.
This information was contained in Tukur’s congratulatory message to the new chairman on in Abuja on Tuesday.
Tukur, who resigned on January 16, said that Mu`azu’s emergence as the party’s chairman was a clear manifestation of his unique leadership qualities.
Tukur said: “On behalf of myself and my family, I congratulate you on your appointment as the national chairman of our great party, the PDP.
“This new appointment is a call to serve our fatherland, which bestows great responsibility on your shoulders.”
According to him, Mu’azu’s emergence is a clear manifestation of his visionary and purposeful disposition and his immeasurable contributions to the growth of the party.
Tukur expressed confidence that Mu’azu would not only discharge his duties effectively, but would leave an indelible mark in the area of rebuilding the party in line with the transformation agenda of President Goodluck Jonathan.
Tukur prayed that Almighty Allah would endow the new chairman with wisdom to bring positive and result-oriented qualities to bear in the party as he assumes office.
Mu’azu, who was a two term governor of Bauchi State, was nominated for the position by Governor Isa Yuguda, his successor.
Mu’azu in his acceptance speech had called on members of the party to cooperate with him to ensure the success of his restoration programme, which would be unveiled soon.
He said: “I do not claim that I have monopoly of wisdom to turn the fortunes of the PDP around.
“But I believe that if we all resolve here and now to turn around the dwindling fortunes of the PDP, the party will regain its lost glory in record time and remain the toast of Nigerians again.”
He added that he would in the coming weeks and months engage in sweeping reforms in the administration of the party to bring it in tandem with global best practices.
Jonathan recently swore in Mu’azu as Chairman of the National Pensions Commission.
