The Director of Abuja School of Social and Political Thoughts (ASSPT) Dr Sam Amadi has turned down his appointment as the Director of Research for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)’s campaign committee.
Amadi said this in a statement on Tuesday in Abuja, saying that the appointment was in conflict with his present position.
He said that his position required a high degree of non-partisanship and hence he could not accept the appointment.
He appreciated Gov. Aminu Tambuwal for considering him fit for such an appointment.
“I am also delighted that the committee is headed by a man of your character and pedigree, someone I have had the honour and privilege of working with in the past.

“I have no doubt that you will, as always, make a huge success of this opportunity.
“Notwithstanding that I am honoured to be appointed as one of the directors to work with you, I humbly want to decline the appointment, and hereby abstain from participating in such a role.
“The decision to decline the offer has stemmed from the conflicts of interest emanating from various responsibilities in which I act as a leader of different platforms where political neutrality and objectivity are required of me,” he said. (NAN)
