PDP Crisis May Break Nigeria-Senator Balogun

A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Senator Lekan Balogun today warned that the current internal wrangling in the party may break the country if not quickly nipped in the bud.

He accused members of G-7 of being parochial.

Speaking with newsmen in Ibadan, the party chieftain said the crisis was not that of the party but for the country.

According to him, if the warring parties are not reconciled in the next two months,the crisis will explode to become national problem.

The PDP chieftain who took swipe on the G-7 over the crisis, said members were pursuing personal interest against global interest.

He said members were desperate for power, adding three of them were targeting the presidency while another is interested in vice president slot.

He said it was unfortunate that those who were opposing President Goodluck Jonathan were too temperament and displayed a lot of egoism.

He said they had abandoned democratic practice and norms.

Balogun who noted some people have opposed Jonathan's second ambition because he had been swore in twice, said they ought to have sought the judiciary's interpretation of the law rather than engaging in parochial and selfish interest.
