National Treasurer of the New Peoples Democratic Party (nPDP), Alhaji Tanko Ishiaku Gwamna on Sunday announced his resignation from the national working committee of the parallel faction within the ruling party.
Accordingly, he pledged his loyalty to the national chairman of the party, Bamanga Tukur, saying the current impasse would spell doom for the party.
In a statement he personally signed, Gwamna said his decision was arrived at after a careful study of the unfolding events in the polity and a deep sober reflection of the consequences of the outcome of such impasse on the party.
“As a lover of democracy, I am of the belief that the current impasse will not augur well for the unity, peace, progress and prosperity of our great party in particular, and the country in general,” he added.
Gwamna further stated, “I, therefore, enjoin all PDP faithful wherever they may be to unite and ensure the amicable resolution of the current impasse. Our desire is for the PDP to continue to lead while others follow.
“As such, we must eschew all vices capable of unnecessarily heating up the polity. I pledge my loyalty to Bamanga Tukur’s leadership while calling on all party faithful to do same.”
