We Can Come Together Again For Greater Exploits, PDP Beg Members
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Tuesday said it has taken a great lesson from the manner it lost the last general elections and is now ready to mend fences with all aggrieved members and hence has begged all to sheath swords.
The National Chairman of the party, Alhaji Adamu Mu’Azu had earlier made a plea to members while begging the aggrieved once to forgive him on alleged infamies credited to him.
The PDP in a statement issued by its National Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh said with the timely intervention by President Goodluck Jonathan towards ending the bickering within the party, all will soon be well with members.
It said the leadership of the PDP regrets any embarrassment the crisis of confidence in the party may have caused the members, just as it apologised to the aggrieved parties with promise to make amends.
The statement read, “We are aware that this unfortunate development is a consequence of post-election trauma arising from our first ever defeat. We however note with relief that we have now overcome this challenge.
“The National Working Committee assures that in the new spirit of harmony in the PDP family, the reengineering process which began on Tuesday with the inauguration of the Post Election Review Committee will be vigorously sustained to restore the lost glory of our great party.
“We therefore urge all our members to ensure that they henceforth guard their utterances and actions no matter the provocation and distortions in some section of the media while channeling their energies and ideas towards the rebuilding process.
“In this regard, all members who have reports, grievances and suggestions on the way forward should transmit same to the Post-Election Review Committee for an all-inclusive roadmap in the overall effort to regain power in 2019.
“Our members should be wary of the activities of some mischievous persons within and outside the PDP family who are bent on frustrating this peace effort. Such individuals and groups have found the social media a veritable tool for their mischief through distortion of facts, false allegations and fabrications against our party”, the statement said.
The leadership therefore urged all members to join forces to ensure that the core values and the vision of the founding fathers are sustained while also directing all organs of the party to focus only on party administration in a manner that rekindles zeal and commitment among members and supporters at all levels
