Split In PDP: Atiku, Amaechi, Lamido, Others, Self-Seeking And Treacherous Individuals – Tukur

PDP FactionThe action of a splinter group led by former Vice President Atiku Abubakar and seven other governors to form a parallel national executive committee of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has been described as treacherous by the legitimately recognized National Chairman of PDP, Alhaji Bamanga Tukur.

Tukur, who spoke last night with newsmen at the Eagle’s square, venue of the ruling party’s special national convention in Abuja, said the party does not recognize a parallel faction.

He said: “The PDP does not recognise any parallel party. Those who staged the walk out and organised a kangaroo meeting are all self-seeking and treacherous individuals pursuing neither regional nor religious agenda except their own agenda, except their own personal interest.

“Their attempt to create a parallel party is illegal; unlawful as there are no crises within the PDP whatsoever. They were all active participants in the setting up of this convention. And many of them were with the President and rode with him to the convention venue and joined them in the salutation of all the delegates including their state delegates.

“The PDP is studying the situation as it unfolds and will deal decisively as the situation warrants.

“It is obvious that they are creating crisis where there is none to give the impression that the party is divided. This in their thinking will allow them persuade loyal members of the National Assembly to cross carpet with them. We will resist this.”


  1. Alhaji Tukur obviously lacks the needed tact in crisis and human relations management. Is it to his credit that in his own time, Pdp is witnessing such catastrophe? He keeps fuelling disaffection with his inelegant manner of addressing discontent.

  2. Who will be their presidential flag bearer? Atiku ofcourse and Amaechi his running mate. But can amaechi win even hie local govt for atiku? Men like atiku are showing the crook in them.No womder former president Obasanjo refused to Hand over to such a callous fellow like him.
