The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, is facing fresh challenges in the South south, thus slowing down his campaign ahead of next month’s election.
The South south leg of his campaign which was originally scheduled for flag off on Tuesday, January 8, has been put off to enable the party “organize a bigger rally.”
Party sources however told The Nation that the postponement was brought about by the inability of the PDP governors in the zone to work together on how to drive Atiku’s presidential campaign.
Atiku who had been in Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE) for some days, returned home yesterday to rejig his campaign against the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
It was also gathered that the party and Atiku are trying to find ways of mending fences in the South south and the Southeast before the PDP campaign train moves to the two zones.
