“It is ludicrous to accuse a man who is not a member of a party of having hijacked the party structure.

“Whoever is making this allegation has to look elsewhere for their failings.”

Former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar said this while reacting to claims that he was promoting division in the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

He insisted that he had no hands in PDP problems in his home state, Adamawa.

Atiku spoke through his media aide, Paul Ibe.

The reaction followed the call by Atiku’s former special assistant and a PDP chieftain, Umar Ardo, for the cancellation of results of last Saturday ward congresses in Adamawa.

Ardo accused Abubakar of having hijacked the party in the state.

He spoke with journalists on Tuesday after submitting a petition to the Adamawa State PDP Congress Appeal Panel at the party’s national headquarters in Abuja.
