Don’t repeat past mistakes, ex-gov Aliyu warns PDP
The former governor predicted that many members of the party would either retire from partisan politics or leave the PDP if it fails in its bid to return to power at the national level.
Aliyu gave this warning while addressing the National PDP Professionals and Business Group during its 4th National Convention/Election, in Abuja, on Monday.
He said, “As professionals and business people, you must help our party to win the forthcoming election. I have said if we do not win 2023, many of us will say bye bye to politics, many will say bye bye to PDP and indeed, many people will find their way out of PDP. So, we need to do what it takes to win the election in 2023.”
The Indigenous People of Biafra has denied holding a meeting with the candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Senator Andy Uba, over the Anambra State governorship election scheduled for November 6.
The group’s Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, stated this in a statement titled, “We didn’t have any discussion with Andy Uba on Anambra Election,” on Monday.
An online medium had two days ago reported that Uba held a meeting with the secessionist group over the poll.
