Days To Election: PDP National Chairman, Mu’azu Flees To Dubai?

Published

on

Strong indications emerged Friday that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Chairman, Ahmed Adamu Mu’azu has fled the country to Dubai and may remain in self exile until after the presidential election.
Sources in the intelligence and security circles revealed that the embattled chairman had become increasingly disenchanted with the abusive manner the Presidential Campaign of Goodluck Jonathan is being prosecuted and the seeming failure to rein in some of the elements that have gone overboard in attacking and insulting the opposition presidential candidate, Muhammadu Buhari.
Our reporter learned that Mu’azu “found it tough to sell the candidature of Jonathan to especially his Northeast constituency ravaged by insurgent elements and neglected by the federal government.”
The source further said that, “Mu’azu’s body language made the hawks in the government uncomfortable and who similarly made him uncomfortable. Most of his powers as chairman have been usurped by his deputy, Uche Secondus who is primed now to prosecute the concluding presidential campaign.”
Our correspondent gathered that for some time now, Muazu has not signed a single cheque to offset huge adverts bill in several newspapers with one source pointing at that as evidence of being disenchanted and another insisting that he was being “muscled” out.
A family source told our correspondent last night that the PDP chair had privately confided in him of his disenchantment with the abusive tone the presidential campaign has taken and he vowed that he would never go that low in insulting Buhari.
The family source however stated that Mu’azu didn’t flee but confirmed that he was currently in Dubai en route Saudi Arabia to perform Lesser Hajj.
On Thursday Muazu personally signed a press statement saying that he was doubtful of a landslide victory for his party’s candidate, Goodluck Jonathan.
Efforts to get the response of Muazu failed, but a top echelon of the PDP yesterday night told Peoples Daily Weekend in a phone interview that Muazu did not flee.
“We were with him in Yobe on Presidential campaign when he had to travel to Dubai to visit his sick mother. If you have his number call him later this night and you will get him because he is returning today (Friday March 20),” our source assured.
