    The leadership of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has disassociated itself from the lingering crises over the trial of the sons of two party chieftains, Bamanga Tukur, PDP chairman and Ahmadu Ali.
    The party's stance was made known through PDP's Deputy Chairman, Sam Sam Jaja at a press  briefing held at the party's national secretariat in Abuja.
    He said "these are individuals, everybody bear its own cross, there were governors who are now
    facing prosecution as a result of their actions and inactions, so is not a party thing. PDP did not send
    anybody to go and misbehave.
    “Even if you mention my Chairman son, he is up to age, assuming he is to go to jail they will not come
    and jail the National Chairman, because he did not send him….he is a man of age and he has
    household, he has his family, everybody account for his own position and of course it has been
    mentioned, until they proved guilty they still remain innocent."
    Tukur, Ali, Arisekola’s sons on trial

    Axenergy Limited. He was accused of using his company, Axenergy Limited to fraudulently
