Gov Aliyu backs Fayose, asks Mu’azu, others to resign

Governor Babangida Aliyu of Niger State on Saturday urged leaders of Peoples Democratic Party to emulate the British political leaders, who resigned after leading their party to defeat in Thursday’s election.

Aliyu said this in Dutse, Jigawa State capital, at the inauguration of a township road named after the then ‘G7 Governors’ by Jigawa State Governor, Sule Lamido. 
Punch reported that he said any leader, who led his political party to defeat, like it happened to the PDP, was expected to resign.
“It is unfortunate that people had to be called to resign. The leaders are supposed to voluntarily resign their positions for the loss at the just concluded general elections.
It is unfair that they are threatening to form a factional PDP because they were asked to resign,” he said.
The governor noted that morality and principle were key attributes the PDP must imbibe to succeed for future elections.
According to him, what happened in the United Kingdom election on Thursday was a reflection of morality and principle, which must be brought to the Nigerian polity.
