The former Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Alhaji Bala Mohammed, has denied speculations that he decamped from the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) after losing the national chairmanship position.
Mohammed said this at a stakeholders meeting called to settle differences within the party in the state.
According to him, politicians should not allow prolonged malice and animosity to interfere with the political will among members, which would hinder the success of the party.
“Just because I lost the national chairmanship, I will not leave PDP because this is not my kind of politics.
“I have never said that I was leaving the PDP because I lost the seat of the national chairman, this is not my kind of politics. Whoever feels I have offended him, I will ask for forgiveness because this is politics, there is no room for institutionalised animosity,” he said.
Mohammed, therefore, called on party members to ensure that all fences were mended in order to bring the party to its real upper status.
“We all need to come back and make the party great again through collective efforts of ensuring that there is no more factions,” he said.
The party state Chairman, Alhaji Yaro Yaro, said the meeting was aimed at putting to an end all factions, and also to preach to one another the gospel of unity in the political system.
