PDP crisis: Atiku, PDP governors are to blame – Jonathan’s ex-aide, Awosan


Former Special Assistant to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan and pioneer member of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Olusanya Awosan, has blamed Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, the party’s presidential candidate for the lingering crisis in the PDP.

Awosan said the former Vice President had not shown leadership since after the party primaries and that he expected him to be magnanimous in victory.

He disclosed this while fielding questions on Thursday morning on the Channels TV Sunrise program.

“I think Vice President Atiku Abubakar has not looked back; he did not bother to look back. Once upon a time, this platform under which he was standing was the platform he brought bulldozers to pull down.

“If there were no people to put the skeleton he left behind together, would there have been a platform for him to stand as a presidential candidate?

“Having secured the ticket, I expected him to be magnanimous in victory, but his disposition does not show any sign of leadership,” he said.

He added that the PDP Governors first took the wrong step by making Ayu the national chairman.

“The governors committed the first error when they went to the bed of Ayu to wake him up from that bed of political retirement to come and be the chairman. I was discussing with Doyin Okupe then, saying these people have taken the wrong step in their life,” he added.
