The governor recalled when Sekibo was a minister of transportation when Atiku was the vice president, he rhetorically asked the audience if they could point to any of his projects in the state.

His statement reads in part:

“PDP will win our state. I am not hiding it as far as the governorship, House of Representatives, Senate and state Assembly is concerned. The other one (presidency) we have not decided, until the right thing is done.”

PDP Crisis: Why Atiku is not a unifier as PDP has portrayed him

Legit.ng earlier reported that the PDP presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, cannot be regarded as a unifier as the umbrella party has presented him to be.

Since the emergence of Atiku as the PDP presidential flagbearer, there has been a recurrent crisis in the opposition, and he has failed to arrest the issue.

A legal practitioner, Wale Adeagbo, said if Atiku is truly a unifier, he would have supported the call to move PDP chairmanship to the south.
