The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has said that it will not be distracted by those who have allowed themselves to be used by forces from another political party.
The party was reacting to the emergence of a new faction of the party called ‘Fresh PDP’ on Wednesday.
The new group led by one Emmanuel Nwosu opened an office at 10, Tito Bros street, opposite Bon Hotel (former Protea Hotel) in Asokoro, Abuja.
Describing the emergence of the new faction as comical, the opposition party said it would remain unperturbed.
Kola Ologbodiyan, spokesman of the PDP, said the Obi-Nwosu group was only making outlandish claims in the media.
Ologbondiyan hailed ongoing reconciliatory efforts of Seriake Dickson, governor of Bayelsa state and head of the party’s peace committee.
The spokesman said the party is satisfied with responses from those approached for reconciliation.
We are happy with the efforts of the Governor Seriake Dickson-led Reconciliation Committee as well as the responses from all the respectable and responsible leaders of our party in that regard,” he said.
“We will however not be responsible or respond to any person or groups of individuals who decide to allow themselves to be used by forces from another political party in a laughable and childish attempt to distract us.
“PDP under the Prince Uche Secondus national leadership will continue to focus on repositioning our great party to be the formidable opposition that will guarantee checks and balances in our polity and ultimately regain power in 2019.”
