The Peoples Democratic Party Presidential Campaign Organisation (PPCO) has denied reports that a Director-General (DG) in the Atiku Abubakar Presidential Campaign team for the North East, has decamped to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
A statement issued by PPCO Director Media and Publicity, Mr Kola Ologbondiyan, on Saturday in Abuja, said the PDP’s campaign organisation does not have a DG in the North East as claimed in the malicious tweet.
Ologbondiyan noted that Senator Saidu Kumo, who was being celebrated in the APC as having dumped the Atiku campaign team to join President Muhammadu Buhari’s re-election bid, had nothing to do with PPCO and was never assigned any role. He urged Nigerians to disregard the claims.
Ologbondiyan said that no amount of fabrications could change the reality of the ruling party’s diminishing popularity. He assured Nigerians, particularly its teeming supporters in the North East that the party’s Presidential Campaign structure is completely intact and rallying with Nigerians in their national consensus to vote in Atiku Abubakar as the next President of Nigeria.
