The crisis rocking the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP ) at the national level may soon consume it as the former National Chairman of the party, Ahmadu Adamu Muazu, may have concluded arrangements to form a new party with some notable chieftains of the party, investigations have revealed.
Already, Muazu has allegedly succeeded in wooing some northern Nigeria power brokers as part of his agenda for 2019 Presidential election in the country, impeccable sources who pleaded anonymity have hinted.
Investigations further revealed that, Muazu, otherwise known as “game changer”, has allegedly curried the support of some major northern leaders.
Muazu who was said to have started consultation on his next political agenda may have recorded major achievements as he has also met with some leaders of the PDP who have consented to his plan and are a ready working together with for the realisation of his new dream to become the next President of Nigeria.
Among the party’s big wigs who have allegedly met with Muazu are the former Senate President, David Mark; the incumbent Governor of Rivers State, Barrister Nyesom Wike; and the former Secretary to the Government of Federation,(SGF), Senator Ayim Pius Ayim.
Further investigation revealed that Muazu with these other PDP leaders have held several secret meetings after which they were said to have agreed to move with their supporters to the new party to be formed in any moment from now.
According to a reliable source, the last meeting of Alhaji Muazu with other PDP leaders in their resolve to move out en mass and form another party was successful.
“Their last meeting which came up in Lagos last week was successful and I can assure you that all plans have been concluded. It seems there is no going back because I can confide in you that they have cemented their plan.
“All I can tell you is that PDP is finished because by the time these people leave to form another party with our Game Changer, what remains again? I can as well confide in you that Alhaji Muazu has already secured the support of some powerful northern leaders who are already keying into his agenda. In fact, they have even started giving him some moral support and advice on how to go about it. The deal is already signed for 2019 and there is no going back,” the source said.
It was gathered that Muazu’s reason for planning to go out of the PDP, is for him to get a soft landing and escape from being exposed by the party, as there have been several allegations against him involving anti-party activities.
For instance, Ekiti State Governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose had accused Muazu of a secret deal with an APC leader before the presidential election with the intention to betray the PDP and the former President, Goodluck Ebele Jonathan which Fayose said was responsible for the PDP defeat in the 2015 general elections.
