National Publicity Secretary of the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chief Olisa Metuh has dispelled the rumour of a rift between President Goodluck Jonathan and the Chairman of the party, Alhaji Adamu Muazu, saying that that there is no love lost within the party.
In a statement today, Metuh said that the PDP is resolute as one united family and that no amount of what he termed media fabrications and malicious insinuations would distract the party.
“In the light of various attempts to drag down the National Chairman of our great party, Ahmadu Adamu Mu’azu, using spurious publications in a section of the media, the PDP wishes to state clearly that our leaders and members nationwide are impressed with his style of leadership which has in the last one year enhanced our support base and public rating ahead of the 2015 general elections.
” 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 flag bearer, President Goodluck Jonathan.
“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 recognize 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.”
