In an apparent move to re-organise the Peoples Democratic Party
(PDP) to pave way for its process of rebuilding, the National
Chairman, Alhaji Bamanga Tukur has eased off all his personal and
political aides, starting with his son, Awal Tukur.

The planed reorganisation of the PDP by the National Chairman is
aimed at strengthening the relationship between the party and the
Presidency in a manner that would fast track the Transformation
Agenda of President Goodluck Jonathan, as well as deepening
democratic practice in Nigeria with PDP on the front seat.

Those affected are, Senator Ibrahim Ida, Principal Secretary, Alhaji
Ahmed Gusau, Political Adviser, Senator Saidu Kumo, SA Electoral
Matters, Chief Ishola Filani, SA Mobilisation, Hon Awal Tukur,
Special Duties, Mallam Muhammed Sheriff Ujudud, SA Media, and
Alhaji Shitu Muhammed, Inter party Affairs.

Others are Chief O Akindele, Special Assistance Economic Matters,
Sir Mike Okiro, Special Aassistance, Security Matters, Mr Osaro
Onoaiwo, SA Governance, Prince Igwe Uche, General Duties, Hon
Abdulahi Gumel, Special Assistance, National Assembly and Mallam
Saidu Sulaimon, Protocol Officer.

The Chairman of the PDP had to this effect prepared a letter
notifying all the affected aides of the development while thanking
them for the supports he had received from each of them.

A copy of the latter issued by the office of the National Chairman to
the aides stated that the ongoing reconciliation within the PDP and
the need to fast delivery of a new National Vision necessitated the
change and adjustments within the office, stating, “Change is the
only permanent thing in life”

Although the memo firing the Chairman’s aides did not specify when
new aides would be appointed, sources close to the office of the
Chairman hinted that the most competent among those so fired
would be recalled while the new aides to come would be assessed
based on competence, experience, integrity and sound track record
in political activism.

The letter said to have been personally signed by the National
Chairman dated April 25, 2014 and scooped by newsmen read,
“May I use this medium to thank all the aides for their devotion,
patience, cooperation and endurance in the course of serving the
PDP. It should be noted that leadership in whatever magnitude goes
with the desire to conform with the changing circumstances
including rationalisation, stabilisation and consolidation.

“Our resolve for reconciliation and delivery of the New National
Vision of acceptable internal democracy should certainly attract
some adjustments and cooperation, of which this action is
paramount and timely considered. However, “Change is the only
permanent thing in life”

Meanwhile, the National Chairman has urged the youths in PDP to
win not less than 20 million votes for the party come 2015, stating
that the youths have the capacity to brace the party to reach the
next level, now and in the future.

Tukur said the with the commitment of the Nigerian youths, it would
be easy for Nigeria to surmount its troubles and win more
international recognition capable of making the country obtain a
seat in the United Nations (UN) Security Council.

Tukur gave the charge to the youths when a group known as
Network for Defence of Democracy and Good Governance
(NDDGG) paid him a courtesy call at his residence, assuring him
that youths were prepared to assist the party to achieve its aim of
wining the next general election.

The group led by Ambassador Sobomabo Jackrich in a speech said
“We give you our assurances of the highest esteem that this cross
increase of membership and support in all forthcoming political
activities is for the PDP, through your person and good office.
Based on this simple truth and to achieving this unity and grater
results, we are asking for your acceptance and closer working

He commended the National Chairman on the on going
reconciliation and moves to reposition PDP, stressing that Nigeria
would remain great in the face of stability of the ruling party and its
preparedness to break new grounds.
