Ijaw Leader and a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party, Chief Edwin Clark, has accused some national leaders of PDP of working for the failure of President Goodluck Jonathan in the next presidential election.
He also accused them of following the President to his campaign rallies instead of going to their home states to also galvanise support for the President.
Clark stated this in Abuja on Saturday while playing host to the PDP Aspirants Forum, who paid him a courtesy visit.
The visit was aimed at expressing their grievances over how the party treated them (PDP aspirants ) in the last primaries in various states.
Clark said he was particularly sad with the way the PDP governorship primaries were conducted in some states, especially in Adamawa State.
He said, “Everybody was ready to hold the governorship primary in Yola. People were waiting in Yola for the primary and the PDP brought the primary to Abuja overnight, hired people from Nyanya and others.
“Whereas, they held the congresses in Yola, they later resorted to hiring people to attend the primary here in Abuja.
“There is injustice in the party. Some of the national leaders don’t want the party to succeed and they are disloyal to the President.
“I have asked them to go to their states to campaign, but they refused. They are following the president everywhere. Some of them want the party to fail.”
He begged the aggrieved aspirants not to leave the ruling party for the opposition, the All Progressives Congress, saying the party had nothing to offer Nigerians other than to enthrone a Northern President.
Members of the group hinged their grievances on the ground that the party did not hold primary elections to nominate any of its candidates, saying all its flag bearers were appointed by their godfathers.
