The Sokoto State Governor, Waziri Tambuwal, has refuted claims that he resigned his position as Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party Governors Forum.
Reports claimed that Tambuwal stepped down at the PDP National Executive Council meeting on Wednesday and was replaced by Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde.
However, Tambuwal denied the claims in a press statement signed by the Director General of the forum, CID Maduabum, and made available to newsmen on Friday.
“This is to inform the general public and stakeholders of the Peoples Democratic Party, that the Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party Governors Forum (PDP-GF), Rt Hon. Aminu Waziri Tambuwal, has not resigned as Chairman of the Forum contrary to some media reports.
“Members of the PDP GOVERNORS FORUM are working behind the scenes to resolve all contending issues concerning the Party. To this end a meeting of the Forum will soon be convened,” the statement read.
Meanwhile, during the PDP’s National Executive Council meeting on Thursday, the party’s the Board of Trustees Chairman, Senator Wali Jibrin, stepped down and he was replaced with former Senate President, Adolphus Wabara.
