Leader of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Deputy President of the Senate, Ike Ekweremadu today denied that the PDP has two different factions.
This was contained in a statement signed by Ekweremadu’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Uche Anichukwu. The statement said what exists in the PDP is people with varying interests, which is normal in party politics.
Ekweremadu said: “For the purpose of clarification, there are no factions within the PDP family as I speak. What we have are contending interests. Such is common in any party. Yes, there were some disagreements, but the good thing is that we have not allowed such disagreements to degenerate into a major crisis that would warrant factions.
“Instead, what happened in Port-Harcourt over the weekend further confirms PDP’s capacity to resolve issues in favour of laid down precepts and in the overall interest of our great party and nation.
“I am sure what happened in Port-Harcourt remains a disappointment for those who were expectant of major crisis and factions in the PDP because we emerged from the convention more determined to change the change, to save our economy, reposition the electoral process, and make life more bearable for the suffering masses of Nigeria again.”
We want to assume he hasn’t heard all that Sheriff has been saying.
