The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Plateau State, has said the crisis rocking the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), in the State will be an advantage to them in the 2023 general elections.
Daily Trust reports that a PDP group known as Plateau for Atiku Movement (PAM), on Tuesday, held a press conference and passed a vote of no confidence on former governor Jonah David Jang, alleged to be loyal to Rivers State governor, Nyesom Wike, and the G5 governors.
Governor Wike had been at loggerheads with Atiku over the removal of the PDP National Chairman, Iyorchia Ayu.
The group during Tuesday’s conference, chaired by Istifanus Mwansat, 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.
However, the APC in the state through its Publicity Secretary, Sylvanus Namang, said the crisis was a good development for them, explaining that the disagreement among the PDP members would further disunite the party.
“We are always saying that the PDP in Plateau is not ready to put its house in order. Instead of them serving as a credible opposition, they continue to jump from one crisis to the other. What happened on Tuesday 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.
