PDP leadership crisis will be over soon — Atiku

The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2023 general elections, Atiku Abubakar, has assured Nigerians that the leadership crisis rocking the party will soon be resolved in no distant time.

Atiku stated this on Friday in Abuja at the Conference and Awards Night with the theme “Revitalising PDP Giants Towards Party Victory 2024,” organised by the Victory Advocates of Nigeria (VAN).

The former vice president, who was represented by his senior aide, Hon. Fabiyi Oladimeji, said Nigerians should not worry about the current state of the PDP, as everything affecting the party will be resolved very soon. He assured Van of his commitment and support for the betterment of our party.

We will continue to support and participate in our party affairs. We shouldn’t blame anybody for our failure if we do not participate. I’m with you and will continue to support you. I appreciate what you are doing, and by the grace of God, you’re going to get there,” Atiku said.

PDP’s national women leader, Hon. Amina Darasimi Brahim, said in her remarks that the party has made mistakes but added that there is a need for genuine reconciliation to take the party to where it truly belongs.

“We have made our mistakes. It is now time for us to come together to make genuine reconciliation and build this party.”

Speaking about those leaving the party in Imo and Abia, she said, “As a political party, we are diverse. There’s a lot going on at the party right now. Reconciliation committees have been set up. We are going to reach out to all the people, sit down as a family, and discuss this issue, and I know that at the end of the day, the PDP will come out stronger.”

VAN national president, Prince Seyi Ajibola, called on PDP leaders to stand up to their responsibilities by giving necessary directions to party members on the way to go.

If the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) collapses, God forbid, we will hold you (leaders) responsible. We have compounded issues in the PDP, and if care is not taken, it can make or mar our chances, irrespective of the candidates put forward during elections. We must manage our internal crisis beyond party politics and shelve selfish interests.

‘Operation Bring Back PDP’ is a collective assignment. No single individual can claim a monopoly of power or structure in winning or attaining victory,” Ajibola said.
