Popular Nigerian activist, Aisha Yesufu has said that the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar is responsible for the crisis plaguing the party.
Atiku had fallen out with Rivers state Governor, Nyesom Wike, over his decision to pick Delta State Governor, Ifeanyi Okowa, as his running mate. Wike and his supporters had demanded the resignation of the party’s chairman Iyorchia Ayu to bring peace back to the party. Reacting to the turbulence in the PDP via a video on Twitter, Yesufu said that Atiku’s inability to manage the PDP was responsible for the crisis rocking the party. She argued that Atiku cannot be trusted to unify Nigeria because he can’t maintain peace within his party. She said: “Atiku should not have constituted the committee since he knew he wouldn’t follow its recommendation. He couldn’t even call Wike to inform him of his development. This has caused more problems in the party. “This is telling you he is someone who can’t even manage his party, and here we are talking about him unifying Nigeria. How possible? If he has the required leadership skills, he should be able to deal with people in order to make them feel validated.”
