Atiku’s statement followed the ongoing dispute surrounding the conclusion of the Peoples Democratic Party’s 98th National Executive Committee meeting, which was held in Abuja on Thursday.

The stance of the 2023 PDP presidential standard-bearer was expressed in a WhatsApp group conversation on Friday with a few of his national supporters.

In an effort to further assure its stability, the PDP National Publicity Secretary, Debo Ologunagba, reports that the party approved the reconstitution of its Disciplinary and Reconciliation Committees on Thursday during intra-party resolutions.

The party named former governor of Akwa-Ibom State, Emmanuel Udom, to lead its Disciplinary Committee, while former Senate President Bukola Saraki continues to lead its Reconciliation committee, as one of the major decisions reached at the NEC meeting.

However, following the NEC meeting, Atiku informed his followers in the WhatsApp group that power comes only from God.His response comes after his supporters implied that he had been duped by certain party members.”There is God,” declared the former vice president, who had unsuccessfully run for president of Nigeria six times. Power does not come from anyone other than God.

In response, a supporter of his on the social media group stated, “This is very true, Sir, and this same God will answer both ours and your heart’s desires.””We will all be here to celebrate as a single, large family of good faith on that day.”Our laborious efforts will not be in vain; there is always hope for improvement.”

To see the night, we will all walk and cooperate together. We are going to win. You are doing well, sir.Taofeek Arapaja, the party’s Deputy National Chairman (South), has responded to the mounting demands for the suspension of Nyesome Wike, the current Minister of the Federal Capital Territory and the former governor of Rivers State, as well as other former G5 governors from the PDP due to purported anti-party activities.

In response to the decisions made at the party’s Thursday NEC meeting and its Wednesday night North Central Zone leadership meeting, he revealed in an interview on Friday.Prior to the two gatherings, a few prominent party members, such as Senator Dino Melaye, a former PDP candidate for governor of Kogi State, had boasted that the party’s NEC on Thursday would impose harsh penalties on any member suspected of engaging in anti-party activities.

However, the PDP NEC chose not to address the purported anti-party issues on Thursday and instead named Umar Damagum, the party’s former vice chairman (North), as acting national chairman until the NEC’s subsequent meeting.Responding in a Friday interview, the PDP National Vice Chairman (South-West) stated that the NEC of the party is not obligated to suspend Wike or Ortom.”I believe that is not a part of the NEC’s activities,” he stated.

We have several committees, such as the disciplinary and reconciliation committees. Therefore, we have internal systems in place to handle situations like that. After that, they have never been charged, accused, or shown up for the disciplinary committee, among other things. Therefore, I do not think NEC should handle that.”Anyone reporting them for anti-party behavior ought to send their grievances to the disciplinary committee.

That is all there is to it. Numerous procedures and mechanisms must be followed, and the NEC is not responsible for such things.
