Arms Deal Probe: PDP torn into 4 factions

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has been torn into four camps over the $2.1 billion arms fund scandal for which many high-ranking members of the party have been dragged to court by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Daily Trust on Sunday investigation has revealed. In the last few weeks it has been observed that the former ruling party’s members are divided into four factions over the arms scandal. One of the factions has sympathy for former President Goodluck Jonathan, one has sympathy for Uche Secondus and his group in the NWC, another is headed by some of the governors and the Minority Leader, Senator Godswill Akpabio, while another faction was created a few days ago by the deputy national officers of the party.
Confirming our investigation, a chieftain of the party in Osun State, Mr Jackson Lekan Ojo, told Daily Trust on Sunday that the party may not be the same again, as some of the factions have taken an irreconcilable posture which could lead to the formation of another political party before 2019 general elections.
According to Mr Ojo, “To me, for the PDP to rule at the centre again, it must change name, and I want to talk like a political prophet. I foresee very clearly today that the PDP at the end of the day will scatter. Some progressives element will go out. The progressives will turn to another party. “Some of the progressives in the PDP and the APC will come together under the umbrella of another party before 2019. But we are talking about the PDP today,” he said. Ojo said PDP members should be probed provided they have committed crime. The PDP chieftain said those in the party found to have benefited from the $2.1 billion arms money should face the full wrath of the law. He also supported the party’s deputy spokesman, Abdullahi Jalo, saying former President Goodluck Jonathan is not above the law and should come out to explain in detail what transpired during his administration over the arms deal
