Ndunagu alleged that the PDP board of trustees chairman, Walid Jibrin, was trying to capitalise on religion in the choice of APC’s presidential and vice-presidential candidates.
The group condemned Jibrin's statement when he said the problem arising from APC’s Muslim-Muslim ticket could not be compared to that of the PDP primary.

“The PDP leaders are aware that their party may not even come out second in the presidential election. This informed their desperation to drag the formidable Tinubu/Shettima ticket into their trouble,’’ Ndunagu stated.
Ndunagu added that Christians and Muslims have been living together in Nigeria and will continue to do so.
He stressed that selfishness in the PDP did not allow the party to acknowledge the unity and stability of Nigeria as the APC has done.
