The National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Alhaji Adamu Mu’azu, has said he is doing his best to ensure that President Goodluck Jonathan wins the March 28 Presidential election.
The PDP national chairman has come under fire recently for purportedly not doing enough to sell the candidature of President Jonathan in the North where he hails from.
Apart from not taking the initiative in organizing pro-Jonathan re-election campaigns in the North, Mu’azu is also being criticized for allegedly not speaking out against the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Maj.-Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (retd.).
In reaction to the allegations, the former governor of Bauchi State insisted that he had been working for the re-election of Mr. Jonathan, adding that he had been doing this in conjunction with the party’s Presidential Campaign Council.
Speaking through his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Tony Amadi, the PDP chairman also said there was no need for him to embark on a separate campaign, different from the one organised by the party.
According to Amadi: “He is working with the presidential campaign’s directorate. He doesn’t need to organise his own campaign.
“He is also doing a lot of work to reconcile warring factions of the party in his state. He doesn’t rattle around unlike others. He also doesn’t go about with retinue of journalists to do his job.
“The chairman is fully committed to the re-election of the President and he has been working well for this”.
