The Leadership of Peoples Democratic Party in Bayelsa State, have denied the existence of any faction of PDP.

The denial was contained in a statement signed by the state Secretary, Keku Godpower . “Our attention has been drawn to the rumours that our great party, PDP, now has a new faction in Bayelsa State. We want to make it abundantly clear that there is nothing like that in the state”. He said.

‎Meanwhile, NigerianEcho has it on good authority that faction of the PDP loyal to Atiku Abubakar may open its state Secretariat early next week.

Keku Godpower further stated that the state chapter of the PDP was not divided, assuring that it will continue to be committed to the agenda of the president, the governor and the party national Chairman.

“We are not factionalised and no amount of rumour mongering, insinuation or even incitement will change the situation because we have elected long ago to be democrats in all our ways and to be steadfast to the basic principles that leadership entails. Indeed, we must state it without equivocation that we are resolutely behind President Jonathan, our dear governor, Mr. Dickson and the national leadership of our great party. “PDP in Bayelsa State remains one and indivisible body, marching ahead spiritedly to fulfill its destiny as laid down by the founding fathers. We are one family, resolute in the basic ideals of democracy, leadership and development of our people.

“For the avoidance of doubt, we in the Bayelsa State chapter of PDP joined other state chairmen just yesterday, in Abuja, to affirm our loyalty and outright support to the Bamangar Tukur leadership and we stand by this conviction as a matter of honour and decency.” he concluded.
