The Plateau State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) said it is watching closely the lingering crisis rocking the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and how beneficial it will be for them in the State.
The APC, in a statement through its Publicity Secretary in the state, Sylvanus Namang, said the tearing apart of the opposition would help its victory in the forthcoming 2023 general elections.
According to Namang, PDP in Plateau is having a problem putting its house together, adding that this has made the party less of a credible opposition as it keeps jumping from one crisis to the other.
HausaToday understands that a PDP group known as Plateau for Atiku Movement (PAM), on Tuesday, held a press conference in the state and passed a vote of no confidence on former governor Jonah David Jang who is alleged to be loyal to Rivers State governor, Nyesom Wike, and the G5 governors.
Recall that Governor Wike had been at loggerheads with Atiku over the removal of the PDP National Chairman, Iyorchia Ayu.
At the conference chaired by Istifanus Mwansat on Tuesday in Jos, the PDP group said they were disappointed with how he (Jang) turned his back on the party’s presidential candidate because of Wike despite being a strong member and leader of the party in the state.
Reacting to the development in the PDP camp, APC said what happened on Tuesday in the opposition camp was not surprising.
“Although we are very strong on the ground, we are going to benefit from the crisis. This is a self-inflicted crisis. I cannot see how they would put their house in other.
“Jang is the owner of the PDP because the structure is fully controlled by him. So, for them to pass a vote of no confidence on him will further worsen the crisis. I wouldn’t say we are happy because we want strong competition which is lacking. But in a way, we are happy because we are going to have a landslide victory,” Namang said.
