The Deputy President of the Senate, Senator Ike Ekweremadu, has dismissed media reports purporting the existence of factions in the Peoples Democratic Party.

Ekweremadu said this on Sunday at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja on arrival from Port-Harcourt, Rivers State, where he attended Saturday’s National Convention of the party.

He said: “For the purpose of clarification, there are no factions within the PDP family as I speak. What we have are contending interests. Such is common in any party. Yes, there were some disagreements, but the good thing is that we have not allowed such disagreements to degenerate into a major crisis that would warrant factions.

“Instead, what happened in Port-Harcourt over the weekend further confirms PDP’s capacity to resolve issues in favour of laid down precepts and in the overall interest of our great party and nation.”

He maintained that the convention did not conduct any election, but simply acted within its constitutional powers as the highest decision-making organ of the PDP to appoint an interim NWC to oversee the affairs of the party and also conduct elections into the NWC positions within 90 days.
