As intra-party crisis deepens among the nation’s major political parties, Bamanga Tukur, a former National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP), has urged the leadership and members of major political parties in the country to ensure the protection of the nation’s democracy.
He said this can be done by eschewing bitterness and rancour as they engage in internal maneuvering for power.
In a statement on Monday by his Special Adviser on Media, Oliver Okpala, the former Chair said he decided to make this intervention because of the current bad blood, rancorous disunity and widening cracks in the major political parties and the main opposition PDP.
“If this current spate of disunity and acrimony in parties continue, the nation’s democracy would be greatly endangered”, he frowned.
Tukur in the statement further stressed that, “Democracy only thrives when there is peace, stability and proper functioning of internal conflict resolution mechanisms of political parties”.
