PDP refutes report of Jonathan, Mu'azu rift

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), on Monday, re­futed reports of a rift between President Goodluck Jonathan and the National Chairman of the party, Alhaji Adamu Mu’azu.

The party declared it re­mained a united family, stress­ing that no amount of media fabrications and malicious insinuations would distract it from its focus ahead of the gen­eral election.

The PDP made the clarifica­tion in a press statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Chief Olisa Metuh, in Abuja.

Metuh explained that the clarification became necessary, in the light of attempts to drag down Mu’azu, using spurious publications in a section of the media.

Said he: “The PDP wishes to state clearly that our leaders and members, nationwide, are impressed with his (Mu’azu’s) style of leadership, which has, in the last one year, enhanced our support base and public rating ahead of the 2015 gen­eral election.

“As one of the founding fa­thers of the PDP, the National Chairman has continued to add immense value with his mature and decent approach to issues in keeping with the tradition and vision of our great party; a disposition that has contin­ued to attract massive support across board for our presiden­tial standard-bearer, President Goodluck Jonathan.”


He added: “It is incontrovert­ible that the National Chair­man has been at the forefront of our Presidential campaign train and enjoys an excellent working relationship with President Jonathan, as exhib­ited in their bond at rallies, visits and meetings with stake­holders across the country.

“Whereas, we recognise the zeal and enthusiasm of some of our supporters, who are re­paying the opposition in their own stock, our National Chair­man, as the face of the PDP, has remained restrained despite numerous unwarranted provo­cations; a stance which does not in any way detract from his commitment to the campaigns, but reinforces our values and dedication to unity, peace and stability of our dear nation.”
