By Okon Bassey in Uyo

Contrary to reports, the Akwa Ibom State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has denied factionalizaion in the party after the recent congresses of the party held in the state.

Accordingly, the State Publicity Secretariat of the Party, Comrade Ini Ememobong on Wednesday called on members of the public to ignore such insinuations, saying those who say that there is a faction in Akwa Ibom PDP are living in abstraction.

Commending the people and groups who enquired about the state of the party in the state especially on the rumour of factions, he said: “The umbrella remains strong and untorn”.

“There was no parallel congress at the ward, chapter or state level anywhere in Akwa Ibom state.

“There has not also been any known contention resulting from the congresses at the wards, chapter and state levels, except those which were sufficiently handled by the Appeal Committee of the party duly set up by the National Executive Committee of the party.”
