The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has debunked the rumour that it had reached a conclusion on which part of the country its next presidential candidate would come from.
According to the National working committee of the PDP, forces in the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) who had become jittery of its rising political fortunes were at work in planting seeds of disunity among its members.
Addressing a press conference yesterday in Abuja the party spokesman, Kola Ologbondiyan, said the November 16 governorship elections in Kogi and Bayelsa States were its main priorities at the moment.
According to Ologbondiyan, those “behind the speculation are political terrorists whose plan is to mislead the public and cause disaffection within the ranks of our party with the hope of using such fabrications to further their own selfish political ambitions.”
The PDP further said it would not stop any of its members from taking steps toward realising their political ambitions.
“For the avoidance of doubt, our party is yet to discuss the 2023 presidential election, overtly or covertly, at any time whatsoever.
“If anything, the PDP is currently working with Nigerians on how to win the governorship elections in Kogi and Bayelsa states and will not be distracted by individuals who found themselves operating in the highest offices of the land but are failing in governance.”
