Presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar has said the party was doing everything within it’s power to address the grievances of party members ahead of 2023 general elections.
He disclosed this on Thursday via his official Twitter handle @atiku.
TheFact Daily noted that Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom had expressed displeasure over Atiku’s choice of Delta state Governor, Ifeanyi Okowa as running mate instead of his Rivers state counterpart Nyesome Wike.
“Wike can be ‘something something’ but when it comes to mobilisation, impact, value addition and reaching out to make sure that the party works the man is an instrument.
“He’s somebody who stood for the party and made sure that things worked. Some of us believed in him, but unfortunately, it was somebody else. But the party is supreme,” he said.
The former vice president wrote: “The Peoples Democratic Party will remain united. Focused on our actions. We are taking action to address the feelings of all party members.
“The unity in our community is my priority. Our resolve to unify Nigeria starts in our party and moves to the community, then on to society.
“Every Governor, Legislator, and other elected officials produced by our party, and party members and loyalists, are much loved and respected by me.
“When they speak, I listen. I do not only listen. Appropriate actions have been taken, are being taken, and will continue to be advanced. -AA,” he tweeted.
