Ahead of the constitution of the campaign organisation of the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, the crisis rocking the party appears far from over.

The latest development, Saturday Sun reliably gathered, may put a clog in the wheel of the opposition party’s determination to triumph in next year’s presidential election.

A source in the PDP told Saturday Sun that the widening gulf has now pitted six PDP governors, predominantly from the South, against Atiku’s presidential bid.
