The lackadaisical attitude of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) National Chairman, Adamu Muazu is not unconnected with who becomes the President of Nigeria in 2019, revealed a source to Secrets Reporters.
Following our report on his resignation which was rescinded after much plea from some Northern power brokers and Emirs, a source within the PDP squealed to us that while the 2015 electioneering is still on, there is already power tussle on who becomes the next President come 2019.
According to our dependable source, Muazu in a meeting with President Goodluck Jonathan and PDP stakeholders jokingly stated that “Your Excellency, we are waiting for you to be sworn in for a second term after which I will step into your shoes as the slot of the North”
This statement was said to have shocked the President and others who were present as they exchanged surprised glances before the President intervened and told him to put his house in order for the race in four years time, but should focus on delivering him this time first.
“Since that encounter, Oga (referring to Muazu) have not been happy with the President; haven read from his body language that he is not in tandem with his ambitious dream”. Further quest by this paper unveiled that the game changer as the PDP boss is called is no longer with the Presidential campaign in spirit and have been making comments to suggest that the race to Aso Rock will be hard for them; thus giving credit to the opposition as being likely to take the day.
We gathered from a Presidential source that the Presidency has truly put Muazu under serious security and political surveillance which he knows of, but pretends that he is unaware. Muazu who is a die hard political disciple of former President Olusegun Obasanjo another party source stated is giving the President serious concern, even though he is not showing it publicly, knowing that he cannot go against his political benefactor, who will tell him where to swing votes to at the dying minute.
If everything goes well, Muazu is likely to strike a deal with the All Progressive Congress (APC) to play the spoiler while he gets their support for his presidential ambition in 2019.
