Former Vice president and presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, says the opposition party will remain united as actions are been taken to address the feelings of all aggrieved party members.
Atiku’s statement is coming on the heels of reported wrangling among top ranking members of the party.
Yesterday, Ayodele Fayose insisted that power must return to the South. The problem of the party was further compounded after Samuel Ortom, Benue State governor announced that he is not sure whether he will support Atiku Abubakar presidential bid.
However, Atiku while reacting to the internal crisis in the party said, “The Peoples Democratic Party will remain united. Focus on our actions. We are taking action to address the feelings of all party members. The unity in our community is my priority. Our resolve to unify Nigeria starts in our party and moves to the community, then on to society.
“Every Governor, Legislator, and other elected officials produced by our party, and party members and loyalists, are much loved and respected by me. When they speak, I listen. I do not only listen. Appropriate actions have been taken, are being taken, and will continue to be advanced. -AA”
