Nigerian main opposition party denies rift over campaign funds

Nigeria’s main opposition party on Monday refuted allegation of disagreements within the party over the handling of its presidential campaign funds.

Spokesperson for the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Kola Ologbondiyan, made the remarks in a statement reaching Xinhua in Lagos, the nation’s commercial hub.

Ologbondiyan said that the party was aware that its opponents were uncomfortable with the growing popularity of PDP’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, and were attempting to inject crisis into its campaign.

He called the insinuation infantile and diversionary, and accused the party’s opponents of sponsoring the allegation.

The party spokesperson said Abubakar’s campaign was driven by the Nigerian public and would never have the kind of rift ravaging campaigns of some of its opponents.

Abubakar had proven capable and would return the country to the path of national unity and economic prosperity, he added.

Nigeria will hold this year’s general elections on Feb. 16 to elect the president and national assembly members, and to elect state governors and state houses of assembly members on March
