The governor of Bauchi state, Bala Mohammed, has advised stakeholders of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, to remain neutral in the ongoing feud between presidential candidate of the party, Atiku Abubakar and the Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike.
Naija News reports that the PDP is currently in turbulence as Atiku is having a face-off with Wike, who lost to the former Vice President in the party’s presidential primary.
Speaking on the party crsis during a stakeholders’ meeting on Sunday, Mohammed advised all candidates of the party in the state to respect Atiku as well as the National Executive Committee (NEC) of the PDP.
The governor stressed that the PDP candidates in the state must steer clear of the current controversy in the PDP at the national level in order not to be consumed with it.
He said, “I don’t want any of us to get involved in the controversy at the national level. It is above us. Leave it to me to handle it as your leader the way l am handling it as your leader. Certainly, we cannot afford it because it will have disparaging consequences on us”.
