The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has issued a stern warning to all support groups and volunteers campaigning for its presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, to abide by its rules and regulations in all their activities ahead of the 2019 general elections.
The party issued the warning in a Wednesday evening statement signed by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan.
The statement read in part, “The party’s caution is predicated on the reported objectionable activities by a group operating as PDP Global Ambassadors World-Wide, who had engaged in soliciting for unauthorised levies and fees for collection of forms for elections into its purported vacant executive positions.
“The PDP hereby alerts Nigerians that the said group do not have the approval of the party to receive fund from anybody or conduct its affairs in such a manner as to be seen as competing with the dictates and operations of the party.
“While we understand that due to the popularity of our candidate, Nigerians are very eager to participate in our campaigns, however, all such participations must be done within the ambit of due process as authorised by the party leadership.
“Finally, the PDP directs all genuine support and volunteer groups interested in participating in our Presidential campaign to register with the party and ensure that all their activities are streamlined under the supervision of the party.”
