The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Tuesday disowned a flier for a Town Hall meeting tagged, ‘Generation Next in PDP’.
The party, in a statement issued in Abuja by its National Publicity Secretary, Mr Kola Ologbondiyan, said it neither approved nor had anything to do with such meeting.
“The party’s attention has been drawn to fliers, advertisements and publications by certain faceless individuals, posturing to have the approval and backing of the party to invite Nigerians to a purported ‘Generation Next in PDP’ Town Hall meeting.
“The makers of the said advertisement even went ahead to list some leaders and members of our party.
“They listed former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, Gov. Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto State, former Senate President Bukola Saraki, the Deputy National Chairman, North of the PDP, Sen. Suleiman Nazif among others, as speakers in the supposed event, in a bid to bestow a semblance of legitimacy to the scheme.
“For the avoidance of doubt, the PDP states in an unequivocal term that it did not authorize nor is it in any way involved or connected with the event or these organisers.
“The PDP, therefore, alerts the public, particularly our members and teeming supporters to completely disregard the said event as it has nothing to do with our party,” he said (NAN)
