Nigeria: PDP - No Division Among Us

Abuja — THE Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, yesterday, raised alarm that some persons were plotting to destroy it, denying having any rift with governors elected on its platform.

National Publicity Secretary of the party, Chief Olisa Metuh, said in a statement that some of the party's perceived enemies claimed disunity within its leadership, stressing, however, that members of the National Working Committee, NWC, were united and working in close relations with the National Chairman, Alhaji Bamanga Tukur. Metuh, also said the party was in good working relationship with President Goodluck Jonathan.

He said: "The PDP has reiterated that there is no division in its leadership even as members of the NWC have stressed that they are solidly behind the National Chairman, Alhaji Bamanga Tukur.

"In the same vein, the party said it totally supports the transformation agenda of President Goodluck Jonathan, adding that it has no problem with PDP State governors contrary to speculations in some national dailies".
