Atiku Abubakar has advocated a level playing ground in the forthcoming governorship primary of the party in Kogi state.
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) gubernatorial candidate dismissed the report suggesting that he was backing any aspirant among others, adding that such a report should be disregarded.
The former vice president made the statement through his media adviser Paul Ibe where he debunked claims about supporting one of the PDP’s chieftains Dino Melaye.
Atiku had earlier been advised to retract any statement linking him to any of the aspiring gubernatorial candidates in Kogi state, to help give room for fair participation in the primaries.
The leader of the elders in the Kogi state PDP Alhaji Ibrahim Dansofo alleged in a statement Atiku was trying to pay them back by trying to impose Melaye as the governorship candidate ahead of the primaries.
