There Is No Division In PDP, Atiku Says

Even though there has been infighting within the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in the lead-up to the general elections in 2023, the party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, insisted on Sunday that the party is still united.
In a message to his supporters, Atiku promised to use all of his influence to unite everyone under the same banner despite his ongoing conflict with some PDP governors and stakeholders over his choice of running mate.

He said-
”One of the characteristic attributes of democracy that I admire a lot is that it is a system with an intrinsic asset of crisis management”.

“It becomes even interesting that perhaps the most noteworthy outcome of a democratic process is the greater possibility of conflict generation”.

“So, a remarkable lesson that I have learned in politics is that in some instances, conflicts are healthy realities”.

“I know, for instance, that when conflicts arise out of genuine concerns about having an inclusive political process, it signposts the viability of that process and, more importantly, the eagerness of stakeholders to be active participants in the success of such process”.

“As leaders and stakeholders in the Peoples Democratic Party, the simmering agitations in our party are a reflection of our credential as a democratic party”.

“Whatever our agitations are, I believe it is borne out of collective concern for the growth of our party and the country. Therefore, I don’t see a divided house in the PDP. I see an opportunity for us to come together stronger and united”.
