The Abia State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has officially distanced itself from a statement attributed to Senator Adolphus Wabara, the acting Chairman of the Board of Trustees (BoT) of PDP.

Senator Wabara’s statement reportedly endorsed the State Governor, Alex Otti, for a second term in office.

II. Party Statement on the Endorsement

In an official statement signed by Abraham Amah, the Vice Chairman of Abia North in the PDP, the party clarified that Senator Wabara’s endorsement of Governor Otti did not reflect the party’s official position.

The party stated that Senator Wabara had delved into the matter without a comprehensive understanding of the project’s history and facts.

IV. Acknowledging the Former Administration’s Contribution

V. Warning to Senator Wabara

Abraham Amah, the Abia PDP’s Vice Chairman for Abia North, issued a warning to Senator Wabara. He highlighted the importance of adhering to appropriate channels of communication within the party and urged caution in making public statements, particularly on matters where one may lack comprehensive knowledge.

VI. Importance of Party Unity

The statement from the Abia PDP underscores the significance of party unity and the need for high-ranking party officials to maintain a coherent message and avoid actions that could sow discord within the party.

VII. Final Remarks

The Abia PDP’s decision to dissociate itself from Senator Wabara’s endorsement of Governor Otti highlights the complexities and internal dynamics of party politics, especially in the context of approaching elections.

It serves as a reminder of the importance of party cohesion and collective decision-making.
