The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Presidential Organization has dismissed reports making the rounds that governors elected on the platform of the party from the South East geo-political zone shunned the party’s zonal rally held in Sokoto on Monday.
The PDP Presidential Campaign Organisation in a statement by its Director, Media and Publicity, Mr Kola Ologbondiyan on Tuesday in Abuja said the insinuation smacked of ignorance and mischief on the part of those peddling it.
The party has three out of the five governors in the region: Dave Umahi(Ebonyi), Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi(Enugu) and Okezie Ikpeazu(Abia).
Ologbondiyan said that the report that the governors from the South East were absent because they have no support for the aspiration of its Presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, was only a figment of the imagination of those peddling the rumor
Ologbondiyan opined that the Sokoto Presidential Zonal rally was for the North West geo-political zone and would be replicated in the remaining five geopolitical zones of the country.
