PDP crisis: Bamanga rules out court option

The PDP national chairman has been under pressure to resign his position due to the increasing cases of defections from the party by prominent leaders of the PDP and it was reported that he was considering taking a legal action to save his seat.
Within the spate of a month, five governors left the fold of the party while 37 House of Representatives members also left to join the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The PDO national chairman in a statement by his special assistant on media, Oliver Okpala, said he is not contemplating such an action as it would be unwise for him to sue the NEC which he is part of.
He stated, “The attention of the national chairman of the PDP Alhaji Bamanga Tukur has been drawn to a wrong insinuation published in one of the national dailies today that he was filing a legal action to prevent the NEC of the party from removing him as chairman of the party      
“Bamanga Tukur clearly condemns and disassociate himself from such a story as it was a complete falsehood of an idea that is unthinkable and unimaginable.  He wondered how he could initiate such an action against a body he is part of and an organ of the party that  has the highest say and policy making body in the party.        
“How can  somebody destroy his own house? The intended legal action only exists in the minds of the writers of the false story. i am a member of the PDP NEC and I respect the body and the members.
