It is politicalnaivety to espect South Governors of the South East to be following former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar to the various zones of the country just to prove that they are one in accord with the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), presidential candidate, the opposition party, said, on Wednesday.

The party through the Peoples Democratic Party Presidential Organisation (PPCO), dismissed reports by a section of the media that governors elected on the platform of the party from the South East geo-political zone were absent at the its rally in Sokoto on Monday, because they were not supporting Atiku.

The PPCO says such insinuation smacks of ignorance and mischief on thepart of those peddling it.

PPCO Director of Media and Publicity, Kola Ologbondiyan, explained in a statement on Tuesday, that the Sokoto Presidential Zonal rally was for the North West geo-political zone and will be replicated in the remaining five geopolitical zones of the country.

Ologbodiyan said there is no sense in the insinuation since, going by the campaign time-table, the Presidential Candidate will visit all the zones, where all the governors elected on the platform of the party from those zones will be present.

"Alhaji Atiku Abubakar's next port of call will be Ilorin, the Kwara State capital on wednesday where the party will hold the North Central Presidential Zonal rally which will have in attendance state governors leaders, members and supporters of the party in the zone.

"This is the same arrangement that we have for all the geo-political zones of the country," he further explained.

He said the so-called shunning of the Sokoto rally by PDP governors of South East extraction was  only a figment of the imagination of those peddling the wicked rumour.

  He said he wondered why certain elements have decided to peddle falsehood about the PDP and its flagbearer, just to score cheap political points.

Ologbodiyan said such negative reports about the PDP and Atiku were being sponsored by those who have become jittery at the rising profile of its presidential candidate.

  "But we are undaunted because Nigerians are very discerning. In the fullness of time, the lies and those behind  them will be exposed," he said.
