Confusion rocks PDP


National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party [PDP] Colonel Amadu Ali [rtd] yesterday shunned Professor Jerry Gana who waited for over two and a half hours hoping to see the PDP boss.

National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party [PDP] Colonel Amadu Ali [rtd] yesterday shunned Professor Jerry Gana who waited for over two and a half hours hoping to see the PDP boss.

This is coming just as Governor Victor Attah of Akwa-Ibom state Friday submitted his letter of intent to vie for next year’s presidential election to the Fayose committee. He becomes the second person after professor Jerry Gana to do so publicly.

This is in spite of the party’s National Executive Committee’s decision disowning the Fayose-led committee set up by the Governors Forum to pick a presidential aspirant from among the governors to run next year’s election – a selection process that was later expanded to cover other aspirants who are not necessarily governors.

Gana, who last week submitted his letter of intent to run next year’s presidential election, had come to the PDP secretariat to submit report of his dissolved committee to National Working Committee [NWC].

The PDP had last week dissolved the national reconciliation committee handling the South-East and headed by Professor Jerry Gana. It is the only reconciliation committee that has so far been dissolved by the leadership of the party. It was learnt that the PDP’s decision was not unconnected with Gana’s intention to vie for presidency in 2007.

Gana arrived the party secretariat at 11:15 am and left without seeing Ali even though he (Ali) was said to have assured the former MAMSER boss that he will be at the party headquarters.
Meanwhile, Obong Victor Attah’s letter of intent was accompanied by a three page letter titled “Letter of Sponsorship of Arc. Victor Attah as presidential Candidate of Our Party, the Peoples Democratic Party”, detailing Governor Attah’s achievements and urging the Fayose committee to recommend the Akwa Ibom chief executive “to the President, the national leader of our party and the entire leadership of the party at the national level.”

The letter was signed by the Akwa-Ibom state Deputy Governor, Sir Michael Udofia, state chairman of the PDP and his deputy, Architect Otu Ita Toyo and Essien Ibok, respectively.
Other signatories include, Otuekong Aniete Ekong, Deacon Bassey and Chief Bassey Inuaeyen. All of them are officials of the PDP in the state.
