Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar has stated that Rivers Governor Nyesom Wike is not against the party.
The former vice president insists Wike, other governors, and stalwarts are all working for the platform to win the 2023 election.
The Wazirin Adamawa advised stakeholders and his supporters to desist from assumptions that may jeopardise PDP’s unity.
In a statement by spokesperson Paul Ibe, Atiku debunked speculations that Wike and governors in his camp were planning to work with the opposition.
The flagbearer cautioned against comments that “potentially reduce the optics of PDP’s image as a united political party.”
Atiku said diversionary antics of the APC, in manufacturing a false impression of division within the PDP, aim to hoodwink the Nigerian public to overlook their monumental failures
The candidate stressed that Nigerians are looking up to the PDP to lead the charge in ousting the ruling party next February.
The statement said the people’s expectation is why the APC is jittery about their impending fall in next year’s general election.
It added that it was also the very reason “the ruling party is manipulating the political process to create a sense of division in the PDP.”
Atiku accused the APC of playing the role of the devil’s advocate, regaling in celebration of their imaginary invincibility upon a fraudulent claim that the PDP is divided.
“All the leaders, including the governor of Rivers State, His Excellency Nyesom Wike and all governors of the PDP are united in working for the victory of the PDP.”
Atiku added that what is at stake is the future of Nigeria, assuring all PDP leaders and members are on the same page in the mission to rescue the country from the stranglehold of the APC.
