PDP crisis blamed on individual ambitions

By Tony Edike

ENUGU — FORMER National Auditor of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Mr. Ray Nnaji, yesterday, attributed the leadership crisis rocking the party at the national level to the struggle for positions in the 2011 elections, saying the various contentious issues in the party would be resolved before long.

Nnaji, who addressed a news conference in Enugu to formally announce his exit from the Ebeano faction of the PDP under the leadership of former governor of the state, Senator Chimaroke Nnamani, said though the crisis rocking the party at the national level was assuming a feverish pitch, the party would emerge stronger when the chips were down.

He said: “Do not mind what is going on at the national level of our party. What you see is simply a battle for the soul of the country, not just the PDP in 2011.

“Some people want to dictate the pace while some people are bent on thwarting such moves. But, before you know it, all these would come to pass and the party would even become stronger.”

Nnaji, who formally announced his decision to quit the opposition, Ebeano political structure in Enugu State, said he had resolved to join forces with Governor Sullivan Chime.
