Dr. Bello Haliru Mohammed since assuming office as acting chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Board of Trustees on Monday, May 25, 2015 has made his first official statement.
He made this official statement while addressing PDP leaders and members who paid him a solidarity visit advising them to stop playing the blame game that has been going on in the party following the party’s loss in the presidential elections. He promised to join hjands with the National Working committee in order to get the party back to the grassroot.
He emphasized the need for the party to brace up, close ranks and go back to the drawing board to devise plans to reinvent the party in preparation for the 2019 elections thereby restoring the party to what it was in 1999. He also said that what a man does after his fall is much more important than the fall or the cause of the fall.
“This is not the time for finger-pointing and apportioning blames. This is the time that we should overlook the shortcomings of each other and look at the positives so that we can put our wisdom together and move the party forward in furtherance of the excellent democratic profile which our great party has earned among Nigerians over the years”, he said.
