Reports of rift false, I have ‘excellent’ relationship with Secondus, other PDP leaders- Atiku
Former vice president Atiku Abubakar has denied media reports of a rift between him, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Chairman, Uche Secondus, as well as governors elected on the platform of the party, among others.
In a statement by the Atiku Media Office on Tuesday, Atiku described the said reports as false.
“It has come to the notice of the Atiku Media Office that there is a statement purportedly attributed to His Excellency Atiku Abubakar currently making the rounds on social media.

“We wish to state for the records that the purported statement aimed at pitching the Waziri Adamawa against the national chairman of PDP, Prince Uche Secondus, PDP National Executive Committee (NEC), PDP governors and stakeholders of the PDP is contrived and baseless.
“For the avoidance of doubt, Atiku Abubakar enjoys excellent relationship with Prince Uche Secondus, the Party’s NEC and all serving PDP Governors and stakeholders of the party,” the statement read.
