As the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) prepares for its National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting, a pressure group within the party, “PDP100% Loyalty,” has appealed to the NEC to urge former Vice President Atiku Abubakar to put aside his presidential ambition for 2027 in the interest of the party’s progress.

Speaking at a press conference in Abuja on Tuesday, the National Chairman of the group, Mr. Dennis Shima (JP), also called for the suspension of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Minister due to his affiliation with the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Highlighting the challenges faced by the party, Shima emphasized the need to address Atiku’s presidential ambition and the party’s failure to take disciplinary action against former Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike, who publicly supported the APC during the last election.

The group stressed that these issues have contributed to the party’s current predicament and called on the NEC to intervene for the party’s greater good.


They urged Atiku, a former Vice President and two-time PDP presidential candidate, to refrain from contesting for the PDP presidential ticket in 2027 and instead support one of his mentees for the position.

“We call on Atiku Abubakar to heed this call to become a statesman and political kingmaker moving forward. We believe that the former Vice President will appreciate the platform provided by the PDP to serve Nigerians,” Shima stated.

The group urged the upcoming PDP NEC meeting to exercise its authority in accordance with the party’s constitution by suspending Nyesom Wike from participating in party activities at all levels due to his current role as a Federal Minister in the APC-led government.

They emphasized that Wike’s association with the APC contradicts the values and principles of the PDP and called for his suspension until he officially disengages from the APC-led government.

Shima underscored the importance of upholding the rule of law and maintaining discipline within the party, stating that these decisions would serve as a deterrent to individuals seeking political relevance at the expense of the party’s integrity and legitimacy.
