Leaders of the Peoples Democratic Party in the South West have asked the National Chairman of the party, Alhaji Adamu Mu’azu, and other members of the National Working Committee to resign.
They based their call on the loss of the PDP in the last general elections, especially the presidential poll.
Rising from a closed door meeting held on Friday in Ado Ekiti, the South West PDP Presidential Contact and Mobilization Committee in a communique read by Chief Olabode George vowed to resist any attempt to impeach the Ekiti Governor, Ayodele Fayose, for his loyalty to the party.
The Zone commended President Goodluck Jonathan for conceding defeat despite the noticeable flaws in the presidential poll, saying this had allowed Nigeria to remain united and prevent unwarranted crisis.
The communiqué said, “The APC orchestrated violence, blackmail and political attacks on elected PDP Governors and other officials pose a threat to the peace of the region and that such will not be tolerated under any guise.”
The party enjoined defected members to return and rebuild the party, since the APC had boldly declared that there was no space for them in the party.
It also commended Fayose for resisting intimidation and remaining dogged in the battle against impeachment by the APC, encouraging him and the Ondo Governor, Dr Olusegun Mimiko, to continue to work together.
It expressed its support for serious overhauling of the party’s structure at the national level.
