Many members of the Peoples Democratic Party have been accused of playing anti-party in the last Presidential election which resulted to the defeat of the Presidential candidate of the party. A PDP Chieftain and a Political Economist, Adakole Ijogi has alleged that the Presidential candidate of the All Progressive Congress, Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu is the only politician that has not cross-carpeted to another party in this current political era.

He stated that the members who didn’t support Atiku Abubakar were right in their own deduction because the former Vice President once worked against the interest of the party. He stated further that judging by how PDP lost power in 2015, it’s unfair that Alhaji Atiku Abubakar had picked the party ticket in 2019 and 2023 elections. According to him, the PDP card-carrying members who supported other Southern candidates in the last election did this based on equity, fairness, and justice.

He said, ”If you are talking about anti-party, the Presidential candidate of the PDP, Atiku Abubakar who left the PDP and joined APC in 2015 to defeat a sitting PDP government, wasn’t that antipathy? But the PDP gave him the ticket in 2019, we gave him in 2023. A political party in the structure of Nigeria today is only a platform to get political power.

If you talk about anti-party, Asiwaju is the only one that has not cross-carpeted among all the politicians in this political era. Even Buhari have changed party, Atiku did that several times, and the PDP National Chairman, Iyorchia Ayu has changed party severally. We have to commend Asiwaju for being the only man standing.’
