PDP Presidential Aspirants Call for Peace

The Presidential Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, on Wednesday, received a delegation of former Presidential Aspirants of the party in his Maitama, Abuja residence amid crisis rocking the party.




The delegation, which was led by Mohammed Hayatudeen, also had Dele Momodu, Tari Oliver, Bar Charles Ugwu and Bar Chikwendu Kalu in attendance.

The meeting, the first since the National Convention that produced Alhaji Atiku Abubakar as the Presidential flag bearer of the party, was to identify with the candidate, and begin a reconciliatory effort between parties involved in the crisis that has engulfed the party since the May 28 Presidential Primary in Abuja.

Atiku expressed his delight to see his former colleagues at the contest, and assured the delegation of his readiness to collaborate and build a formidable team to see the PDP winning the forthcoming election and also to strategically position the party for the business of governance.

Addressing newsmen after the parley, Chief Dele Momodu said the interest of the group and the purpose of the visit was to ensure peace and stability in the party. He stressed the need for the party to walk through challenges and restore peace to the party.
