Former Senate President Bukola Saraki has addressed why he has remained silent on the Peoples Democratic Party conflict (PDP).
The former senate president stated he has been “working silently behind the scenes” when speaking about the problem for the first time.
“I just returned from my annual vacation and went straight to Akwa Ibom to join the celebration of the 35th anniversary of the state’s creation,” Saraki said in a tweet on Saturday. As I moved around the country in the past few days, I got the feeling that many people are concerned over my seeming silence on recent developments in our party, the PDP.
“My response is that there are times to speak and be heard and there are times when working silently behind the scene is more productive. This is such a time,” he added.
Since Atiku Abubakar, a former vice president, was chosen as the leader of the main opposition party, the PDP has been in disarray.
After Nyesom Wike, the governor of Rivers state was passed over by Atiku while choosing his running partner, the schism widened.
The problem grew worse earlier in the week when Wike’s allies abandoned campaign duties and demanded the ouster of Iyorchia Ayu, the party’s national leader.
