Tukur bows to pressure as he tenders resignation letter

By The Citizen

The embattled National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Alhaji Bamanga Tukur, has resigned.

According to information reaching our news desk, it was reliably gathered that he tendered his much waited resignation letter this Wednesday.

Another top PDP chieftain also told our correspondent that President Goodluck Jonathan will inform the meeting of the National Caucus of the party tonight in Abuja about the development.

With the resignation, Tukur has escaped being suspended from the party by the members of the NWC if he had refused to resign.

Tukur was to be suspended by about eight members of the NWC, while the National Executive Committee of the party would ratify his suspension on Thursday.
