Why Southeast Governors Did Not Attend Party's Rally In Sokoto - PDP by ahmedkoded95(m): 11:44am On Dec 05
- PDP has said it is ignorant to say governors from the southeast shunned the party's rally in Sokoto on Monday

- According to to party, the rumour was only a figment of the imagination of those peddling it

- The party said its rally would take place region by region where all PDP governors will make appearances

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential organisation has dismissed media reports that governors elected on the platform of the party from the southeast geo-political zone shunned the party’s zonal rally held in Sokoto on Monday, December 3.

The PDP presidential campaign organisation gave the dismissal in a statement issued by its director, media and publicity, Kola Ologbondiyan, on Tuesday, December 4, in Abuja.

The party has three out of the five governors in the region: Dave Umahi (Ebonyi), Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi (Enugu) and Okezie Ikpeazu (Abia).

Ologbondiyan said that the report that the governors from the southeast were absent because they have no support for the aspiration of its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, was only a figment of the imagination of those peddling the rumour.

He said that such insinuation smacked of ignorance and mischief on the part of those peddling it.

Ologbondiyan said that the Sokoto presidential zonal rally was for the northwest geo-political zone and would be replicated in the remaining five geopolitical zones of the country.

“There is no sense in the insinuation since, going by the campaign time-table, the Presidential Candidate will visit all the zones, where all the governors elected on the platform of the party from those zones will be present.

“Abubakar’s next port of call will be Ilorin, the Kwara state capital on Wednesday where the party will hold the north central Presidential Zonal rally which will have in attendance state governors leaders, members and supporters of the party in the zone.

“This is the same arrangement that we have for all the geo-political zones of the country. The so-called shunning of the Sokoto rally by PDP governors of southeast extraction was only a figment of the imagination of those peddling the wicked rumour.”

Ologbondiyan said he wondered why some people had decided to peddle falsehood about the PDP and its flag bearer, just to score cheap political points. He said such negative reports about the PDP and Atiku were being sponsored by those who have become jittery at the rising profile of its presidential candidate.

“But we are undaunted because Nigerians are very discerning. In the fullness of time, the lies and those behind them will be exposed,” he said.

The PDP began its presidential campaign with a rally for northwest in Sokoto on Monday, December 4.

Legit.ng previously reported that former president, Goodluck Jonathan, and other top members of the PDP joined thousands of supporters on Monday, December 3, in Sokoto for the launch of the northwest zonal campaign of the presidential candidate of the party, Atiku Abubakar.

Abubakar was earlier scheduled to arrive Sokoto for the rally at noon, but arrived the city at 2pm and proceeded to the Kangiwa square along with other stalwarts of the party.

Those who came in company of the candidate are officials of the party from the seven states in the northwest comprising Sokoto, Zamfara, Kebbi, Jigawa, Katsina, Kano and Kaduna.

ATiku and PDP should stop deceiving themselves, it is an open secret that Atiku fell out with SE PDP governors and leaders after he nominated Peter obi as his running mate. This issue will remain unresolved till after the elections

Stop peddling false rumors.

PDP should focus on other areas and leave SE alone.
No man is king in the SE. The Governors and their emotions have no influence. With or without their appearance the SE have always gone PDP and to a smaller extent, APGA.

Shut your mouth, there is nothing best about peter obi, what did he do as anambra governor except saving our money in his bank and collecting the interest to fund his private businesses. SE is equipped with sound technocrats and greedy, selfish peter obi is not one

The excuse not genuine enough. Ologbodiyan should tell us another story ..

You can't abandoned those who stood firmly when PDP was dieing and give the leadership to new decampee. It is not done anywhere moreover these governors have re-election in front of them.
