Charles Aniagwu, a spokesman of the Atiku Abubakar presidential campaign organisation, says the wrangling within the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is one characteristic of democratic governance.
Aniagwu spoke during an interview on Arise Television on Thursday.
He said the PDP, as a national party, is committed to the ideals of freedom of speech and expression as guaranteed by the Nigerian constitution.
He added that individuals in the party were exercising their democratic rights and helping to widen the democratic space.
“Atiku is a man of character who keeps his word. If he says look, we are going to run a government that will rescue Nigeria, he knows that for him to do that, every segment of the society must be carried along and that includes our brothers and sisters in south-west,” he said.
“What Atiku wants is to have a very peaceful government so that, at the end of the day, he is able to unite the country and because he believes that for him to be able to drive the economic policies, he needs to, first of all, bring everybody on board.
“To unite the country, he is trying to bring individuals who have the ability, whether they are in the diaspora or other political parties, once you have got the quality to be effective, he brings you in.
“What is happening within the PDP is democracy at play and even in the midst of the disagreements, the PDP is still far ahead of any other political party.”
He added that Atiku is the only presidential candidate that has shown Nigerians that he has policies that will rescue the country.
“Our candidate is the only person that has been able to show Nigerians that he has a policy framework that he will use to rescue Nigerians,” Aniagwu said.
“No other candidate has been able to produce anyone even from those parties you think are quiet without any crisis.
“Our candidate is very much prepared and he has gone ahead to make a public presentation of what he intends to do with the economy.
“So, in spite of what you are hearing as disagreements, the PDP and our presidential candidate are far ahead of other parties that tend to have what we may call the peace of the graveyard.”
He commended Nigerians for their interest in the unity of the PDP and for the confidence reposed in the party to rescue Nigerians.
