Must read

The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, on Wednesday, May 6, 2015 stated that it has overcome the trauma of defeat by the opposition All Progressives Congress in the 2015 presidential election of Saturday, March 28, 2015.

This stance was disclosed by the party’s National Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh, via a statement in Abuja.

He commended President Goodluck Jonathan for his role in putting an end to the bickering among leaders of the party as a result of the outcome of the 2015 general elections.

Metuh said the National Working Committee, NWC, would absolutely abide by the president’s counsel, adding that that the party had instructed all the executive members of the party at all levels to comply accordingly.

He said, “The leadership of the PDP regrets any embarrassment the avoidable skirmishes may have caused the members of our great party, especially our founding fathers and teeming supporters across the country.

“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.”

He further explained that the National Working Committee has commenced the reengineering process with the inauguration of the Post-Election Review Committee.

“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 toward the rebuilding process,” he said

The statement added, “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 road map 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 party further implored all the members to uphold unity in order to sustain the core values and the vision of the founding fathers.
