Atiku Abubakar Emphasizes Divine Authority in Power Amidst PDP Controversy

Former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar has reiterated the divine nature of power, asserting that only God bestows authority, amidst the ongoing turbulence within the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Atiku’s remarks followed the 98th National Executive Committee meeting of the PDP, which saw controversies surrounding its outcomes, as disclosed by the party’s National Publicity Secretary, Debo Ologunagba.

In a WhatsApp group chat with his supporters, Atiku emphasized the supremacy of God in granting power, distancing himself from perceived betrayals within the party.

Acknowledging the party’s resolutions, including the reconstitution of Disciplinary and Reconciliation Committees, Atiku’s supporters expressed unwavering faith in his eventual triumph.

Meanwhile, amidst growing calls for the suspension of key party members over alleged anti-party activities, including former Rivers State governor, Nyesome Wike, PDP’s Deputy National Chairman (South), Taofeek Arapaja, clarified that such actions fall under the jurisdiction of internal disciplinary mechanisms, not the NEC.

The survival of acting PDP National Chairman, Umar Damagum, from an ouster plot was attributed to the intervention of governors elected on the party’s platform. The decision to extend Damagum’s tenure until August 15 was made during the PDP Governors’ Forum meeting, aimed at fostering peace and unity within the party.

The PDP remains embroiled in internal challenges, with stakeholders navigating delicate issues of leadership and party cohesion amidst broader political dynamics. Atiku’s assertion of divine authority in power underscores the complexities of political maneuvering and the enduring quest for stability within the party.
