The presidential flag-bearer of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, has given an assurance that the lingering crisis in the party would be resolved soon and the party will come out stronger.
Newsbreak.ng reports that Atiku, who gave this assurance when he visited Minna, Niger State, on Friday for a high-powered meeting, said the quarrel was a family affair.
“It is a family quarrel and we believe that we will resolve it before the elections and you will see a very united and strong PDP that will face the elections,” he told newsmen.
Furthermore, the former vice-president stated that his camp would not be weary of reaching out to the G-5 governors.
“We have always engaged the five governors and we will continue to engage them,” he added.
Five governors: Nyesom Wike (Rivers State), Seyi Makinde (Oyo State), Okezie Ikpeazu (Abia State), Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi (Enugu State), and Samuel Ortom (Benue State), have been demanding the resignation of the National Chairman of the PDP, Iyorchia Ayu, to balance the party’s leadership structure.
They said it is wrong for the party’s national chairman to come from the same section of the country as the presidential candidate.
Both Messrs Ayu and Atiku are from the northern part of Nigeria.
