Embattled National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Alhaji Bamanga Tukur, has resigned, The Punch learnt.

A senior member of the divided National Working Committee of the party, who spoke with our correspondent in Abuja on Wednesday, said 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.

Meanwhile, the wife of the President, Mrs. Patience Jonathan is said to be scheming to install Tukur’s successor.

The First Lady is said to be rooting for the appointment of the Minister of Transport, Sen. Idris Umar.

However, the governors are resisting the move.
