Debo Ologunagba, the National Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has dismissed talks of a crisis within the party.
POLITICS NIGERIA reports that Nigeria’s main opposition party has been rocked by ‘crisis’ following the choice of the Delta State Governor, Ifeanyi Okowa, as the running mate of Atiku Abubakar, its presidential candidate in the 2023 election.
Multiple sources in the camp of Nyesom Wike, Rivers State Governor, revealed that he had been livid with the way he was ‘edged out’ by the PDP in the party’s choice for its Vice-Presidential slot for the 2023 election.
But Ologunagba said the party was approaching the coming elections as a united front.
“We should be concerned about the country, there’s no crisis in the PDP and if anybody goes to visit Wike, it’s normal, he is a leader in this party. In this party, we don’t work with allegations, we work with facts. PDP is strong and we’re ready for the election.
“Governor Wike is a phenomenon in this party, a party man to the core, a pillar of this party from the beginning to now. We’re a party, a family. In a family, you can have differences, but that does not make it a crisis, there are no issues there.
“When there are differences, we resolve them and we have a structure within our party that is so robust that takes care of our differences,” the PDP spokesperson said, according to Daily Trust.
