OPPOSITION OUT TO DIVIDE OUR LEADERSHIP - PDP
ABUJA – Acting National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Dr. Bello Haliru Mohammed, yesterday raised alarm that some persons in the opposition have concluded arrangements to cause distrust, discord, suspicion and disaffection among its national leadership aimed at setting them against one another to create internal disharmony.
The PDP also alleged that it has uncovered a plot by persons believed to be agents of the opposition to use the press and social media networks to concoct and disseminate what it termed spurious stories about the party's current leadership to embarrass and tarnish the good public image of top leaders of the party.
In a statement signed by Mohammed's Special Assistant, Media, Mr Emeka Nwankpa, the party said: ''According to intelligence reports available to the party's National Secretariat in Abuja, some opposition groups have hired and commissioned certain newspapers, news magazines, social media networks and fifth columnists to concoct and disseminate false claims and allegations against leaders of the party to cause distrust, discord, suspicion and disaffection in order to set them against one another thereby creating internal discontent and disharmony.
''The Office of the Acting National Chairman of the party has viewed the situation and has, therefore, alerted leaders, loyalists and supporters of the party to be wary of false publications, alarming leaflets, text messages, rumours and comments attributed to certain persons in the top hierarchy of the party, saying that these are mere ploys to create division in the party.
