We Are Not In Any Way Associated With APDA, Says PDP
Hours after the launch of the Advance Peoples Democratic Alliance (APDA) in Abuja, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has officially denied claim that it sponsored the establishment of the political party.
The unveiling which held at the Reiz Continental Hotel in Abuja, has Chief Raymond Dokpesi, Chairman of Daar Communications and Chieftain of the PDP in attendance.
Dayo Adeyeye, spokesman of the PDP, in a statement made available to pressmen in Abuja said that the PDP was in no way associated with the APDA.
“In the last few hours we have received numerous calls from our party members, concerned citizens and well-wishers on our association or otherwise with the Advance Peoples Democratic Alliance (APDA) which was unveiled today at Abuja,” he said.
“For the avoidance of doubt, we reiterate once again that we are not in any way associated with the new party in any form or guise. The APDA is neither an offshoot of the PDP nor its alter ego as some are speculating.
“This statement is made purely to set the records straight and to avoid unnecessary innuendos, speculations and ambiguity that may threaten the continued unity and solidarity of our party members.”
