The Peoples Democratic Party on Monday denied reports that is being sponsored by the All Progressives Congress that there are disagreements in the PDP over the handling of the party’s presidential campaign funds.
The PDP National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, alleged that the APC and agents of President Muhammadu Buhari Campaign Council fabricated the stories to create a scenario.
According to him, this showed that the ruling party and the Buhari Presidency have finally come to their wits’ end and are suffering from pre-defeat trauma.
Ologbondiyan, who is the Director, Media & Publicity, PDP Presidential Campaign Organisation, said the alleged smear campaign will not help the ruling party and its candidate’s cause.
He stated that Nigerians would never be distracted from their collective resolve to vote in the PDP presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar as the next president.
Ologbondiyan said, “The PDP is aware that Buhari presidency and the APC have become so frustrated over their dwindled electoral fortune in the face of the soaring popularity of the people’s candidate, Atiku Abubakar.
“They are now attempting to inject crisis into the PDP campaign in order to divert public attention from their own failures and rejection.

“For President Buhari’s information, the Atiku Abubakar campaign is owned and driven by the Nigerian public and will never have the kind of rift that have been ravaging the APC campaign.

Tunisia: former President Ben Ali confirmed dead
All time, former Tunisia’s President Zine el-Abidine Ben Ali has died in exile aged 83, his family says.
Ben Ali led the country for 30years and was credited with delivering stability and some economic prosperity.
But he received widespread criticism for suppressing political freedoms and for widespread corruption.
In 2011, he was forced from office following mass street protests. This triggered a wave of similar uprisings across the Arab world.
At least half a dozen countries in the region saw their president fall or conflicts break out in the wake of the former Tunisian leader’s downfall, in what became known as the Arab Spring.
Gantz refuse’s Netanyahu offer on unity government
After a vote tally showing Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu tied with his main rival.
Israel’s weakened Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu saw his offer on Thursday for a coalition with his strongest political rival, Gantz, swiftly rebuffed after failing to secure a governing majority in a tight election.
Netanyahu’s surprise move was an abrupt change of strategy for the right-wing leader. Its rejection could spell weeks of wrangling after Tuesday’s election, which followed an inconclusive national ballot in April.
Gantz’s centrist Blue and White party emerged from the second round of voting this year slightly ahead of Netanyahu’s Likud, but also short of enough supporters in the 120-member parliament for a ruling bloc.
Netanyahu, Israel’s longest-serving leader, said in a video clip in which he urged Gantz, the country’s former military chief, to meet him “as soon as today”, that he had pledged during the election campaign to form a right-wing, Likud-led government.
