The standard flagbearer of the PDP for Jalingo LGA in the forthcoming local government elections in Taraba state, Abdulnasser Bobboji, has categorically stated that the PDP is a united family rather than a divided house as the party’s been perceived nowadays.
The PDP has been divided by factions with the Makarfi and Sheriff factions battling for the soul of the party. And when confronted with the issue as a PDP stakeholder, Bobboji simply said, “PDP is one big family. There is no faction whatsoever. I am not aware of that”.
Bobboji who was elected as consensus candidate in the primaries that held on Thursday, revealed the secret behind his success. He stated that his experience as local government caretaker Chairman and his being a grassroots person were mainly responsible for his success in the primaries. He stated that he was a product of a unanimous decision without molestation and compulsion.
“ That was what informed virtually the unanimous mandate given to me by the party. As you can see, you are witness to the formal endorsement. There was virtually no dissenting voice. The people of PDP have spoken as a family and it was because of my stewardship as chairman of the local government and my background too as a local man, because I am a typical local man and that is why I am virtually ingrained any where of the community”, he boasted.
