Atiku Abubakar, former Vice President and chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has said he is only interested in peace and stability of the party.

The PDP chieftain said this in response to speculations that he plots to remove Uche Secondus, the party’s National Chairman fueled by his recent meeting with Rivers governor, Nyesom Wike.

In a statement by Atiku’s media aide, Paul Ibe, the former vice-president said his meeting with the Rivers governor was to reconcile aggrieved members of the party and not to sack Secondus.

He said he would not endanger the party as he is only interested in the peace and stability of the PDP.

Atiku described speculations to remove Secondus as beer parlour talk, questioning why he would be interested in doing so. He described the claims associating him to the plot as “beer parlour talk” and mischief”.

Atiku is an individual, yes a major stakeholder in the party, and he has taken steps to bring everybody together to see how these issues can be peacefully resolved. They are all related, either the one that happens now or before. They are all part of the larger problem facing the party” the statement read.

The former vice president said he understands the PDP constitution and what the party says about tenure for party leadership.

Meanwhile, Prince Uche Secondus, the national chairman of the PDP blamed an unidentified ‘Father Christmas’ for the rumpus in the party.

He said the ‘Father Christmas’ party chieftain desires to hijack the structure of the party for “for his disproportionately large ambition”.

The PDP chairman urged party stakeholders to respect the party constitution and approach issues dispassionately in their quest to resolve current challenges.
