Alhaji Balarabe Musa, former Governor of Kaduna State, has quit his position as the National Chairman of the People Redemption Party (PRP), for "young and fresher blood".
He also cited "declining energy and failing health" as reasons for his decision.
He stated this at the 54th National Executive Committee Meeting of the PRP, which held in Kaduna, on Friday.
His words: "In this regard, it is appropriate to inform members that this will be the last time that I will personally be chairing NEC as our party’s National Chairman.
“Due to declining energy and failing health, it has become necessary for me to vacate the seat for young and fresher blood.
“But not just young and fresher blood but qualitatively, demonstratively younger and fresher blood more robustly and combatively committed to all the ideals our party, the PRP has always stood for.
“I shall, however, always remain available for party assignments within the limits of my fading energy and failing health.”
According to NAN, the meeting was held to discuss issues relating to the party's constitution, guideline for candidates, zoning matters, among other issues.
The former governor extended his appreciation to members of the party for their support and urged them to always champion the ideals of the PRP.
