Abuja - The ruling People’s Democratic Party (PDP) said the current fallout in the Nigeria Governors Forum (NGF) over the election of its chairmanship will not threaten its chances in the 2015 general election.
“For the PDP, it is better that this kind of thing is happening now rather than later. There is enough time to cement the relationship. However, there is no threat in the true sense of it, the PDP is organised and the party has an internal mechanism for resolving its internal problems.
"I believe the party will come out stronger,” Plateau North Senator Gyang Pwajok said in Jos on Tuesday.
The NGF is rocked by factionalism with Jonah Jang and Rotimi Amaechi leading the respective factions.
Confident that the issues will be resolved, Pwajok downplayed the crisis describing it as ‘political re-alignments of forces across Nigeria'.
“It is easy to merge, it is when the issue of who gets what comes up that the party will determine whether they have the capacity to resolve the crisis," Pwajok said.
Currently led by President Goodluck Jonathan, PDP has won every presidential election since 1999.
Meanwhile, the senator welcomed ongoing moves to resolve the crisis between the Fulani and the natives in his constituency.
He hailed the groups for embracing peace.
