**Breaking News** PDP GETS NEW NATIONAL CHAIRMAN TO REPLACE TUKUR;

 A former Governor of Bauchi State, Alhaji Adamu Mu'azu, has been chosen as the new Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party by President Goodluck Jonathan and governors.
He will replace the former chairman, Alhaji Bamanga Tukur, who resigned from his position on Wednesday.
Mu'azu was picked as a consensus candidate at a meeting between President Goodluck Jonathan and the governors of the party at the Presidential Villa in Abuja on Sunday night.

The meeting ended at 1:22 am on Monday (today) morning.
Investigations showed that the governors had rejected the choice of Mohammed Wakil by the President and his wife, Patience.
Some reasons were said to have been adduced for the rejection of Wakil, a former House of Representatives Leader. The reasons included his alleged inability to carry people along when he was a principal officer of the House.

  • Kehinde Kennyland Adeniran 10 things you should know about new PDP Chariman, Alhaji Adamu Mu’azu
    Alhaji Adamu Mu’azu was adopted as consensus candidate for Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP. He replaces Bamanga Tukur who resigned the position on Wednesday.
    What is it about this new chairman? We present 10 things to be particularly aware of.

    1. Alhaji Adamu Mu’azu was born on June 11, 1955

    2. He was was governor of Bauchi State from May 29, 1999 to May 29, 2007.

    3. After two terms as Governor, he Senatorial election to represent Bauchi South and was defeated by the present Federal Capital Territory Minister, Bala Mohammed, who won under ANPP.

    4. Former ally Governor Isa Yuguda set up a Commission of Enquiry as soon as he was sworn in to to investigate the management of funds into some Ministries and parastatals during the administration of Adamu Muazu.

    5. Mu’azu relocated to Dubai, the United Arab Emirates, on self exile in 2008, after missing an appointment with the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

    6. In 2009, the commission of enquiry set up by Bauchi state government concluded its investigation, and came up with a white paper that indicted Muazu of embezzling N2b, among other indictments, as well as banned him from contesting for public office for 10 years.

    7. On his return to the country in 2010, Mu’azu filed a case against the state government, through his counsel, Akintola Adeniyi (SAN), saying the state government did not have the right to ban him from contesting for political office. The case with the suit no BA/295m/2009 was first mentioned on 25th February 2010.

    8. Mu’azu was appointed as Chairman of the National Pensions Commission by President Goodluck Jonathan IN November, and sworn in last week. The civic group, Transition Monitoring Group, protested the appointment at the time, saying it was morally wrong for the president to appoint a man being tried for corruption to such a high office.

    9. The case which might have suffered setback since 2009 finally came up this month cleared Adamu Muazu of alleged N2b indictment and others by the Judicial Commission of enquiry.

    10. He is still being investigated for graft by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, for allegedly looting N19.8billion belonging to his state while he was governor between 1999 and 2007.
