Speaking to journalists at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport in Abuja, on arrival from a party convention Port-Harcourt with a determination to ‘change the change’, Deputy senate president, Ike Ekweremadu, on Sunday, dismissed reports that the PDP is currently divided, describing such news as‘false, baseless, and misguided’.
According to Uche Anichukwu, Ekweremadu’s spokesman, the lawmaker who is the highest ranking member of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), said,
“For the purpose of clarification, there are no factions within the PDP family as I speak. What we have are contending interests. Such is common in any party. Yes, there were some disagreements, but the good thing is that we have not allowed such disagreements to degenerate into a major crisis that would warrant factions.
“Instead, what happened in Port-Harcourt over the weekend further confirms PDP’s capacity to resolve issues in favour of laid down precepts and in the overall interest of our great party and nation.

“I am sure what happened in Port-Harcourt remains a disappointment for those who were expectant of major crisis and factions in the PDP because we emerged from the convention more determined to change the change, to save our economy, reposition the electoral process, and make life more bearable for the suffering masses of Nigeria again.”
