Atiku confident PDP will be stronger despite agitations

Former Vice President and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar said internal dissent gives the group a chance to grow stronger and more unified.

This was said by Atiku in a statement on Sunday, July 3, despite protests from several PDP governors; including Nyesom Wike of Rivers State, over his selection of Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State as his running mate.

He pointed out that as PDP improves, there is more reason to believe that Nigeria will soon be saved.

The former vice president claimed that democracy is a system with the inherent ability to resolve crises.

Atiku clarified that the likelihood of conflict production is the most notable result of a democratic process.

The statement partly read “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.”

Atiku assured that he will do everything possible to bring the party together under a formidable umbrella.

He urged all party faithful not to lose focus of the bigger purpose of rescuing the country from the hardship that fellow Nigerians continue to endure under the ruling party.
