ABUJA, Nigeria – The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has claimed that some disgruntled members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) will form a new political party ahead of the 2023 general elections.
The National Publicity Secretary of the party, Kola Ologbondiyan, hinted this while speaking on Arise TV on Monday.
“We are aware in the Peoples Democratic Party that there are those who are losing out in APC and they are contemplating a third force just as they did in 2014.
“And as such, they are looking at coming to the PDP and breaking the party by taking members of the PDP to create a new political party,” Ologbondiyan said.
The PDP spokesman also insisted they were not bothered about which region of the country APC will zone its presidential ticket for the next election.
“The PDP is a holistic political party and we are not going to allow distractions. The leadership of the PDP under Prince Uche Secondus is steadying the party for the purpose for which Nigerians are aligning with us come 2023,” he added.
Ologbondiyan also confirmed that the National Executive Council (NEC) of the party would meet on Thursday.
