May God endow our leaders with the wisdom to navigate the ship of the party to a safe harbour. Amen.”
Atiku sends a timely message to PDP chairman Secondus
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had previously reported that a former presidential candidate on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, has called on the leadership of the party to embrace unity and settle the difference of aggrieved members.
It was reported that Atiku, in a statement released on Thursday, August 5, by his media adviser, Paul Ibe, noted that the opposition party cannot allow internal rivalry to tear it apart because this will mean the birth of what he called a one-party system in Nigeria.
The former vice president explained that if the PDP implodes, Nigerians who look up to it for their redemption will suffer untold economic hardship.
