PDP Will be Back, Stronger and Invigorated – Wike

The People’s Demo­cratic Party (PDP) will bounce back very soon, stronger and re­invigorated – say two of its most eminent state governors.

Governors Ifeanyi Ug­wuanyi (Enugu State) and Nyesom Wike (Rivers State) on Sunday looked into the future of the PDP and de­scribed it as very bright.

They said that last week’s Supreme Court resolution of the protracted leadership crisis in the party has bright­ened the PDP’s horizon, declaring that the party will soon bounce back after its reconciliation process.

While Ugwuanyi said that the PDP’s doors were opened to renegade mem­bers, Wike said that the party will be vigilant in its reconciliation process to avoid the mistakes of the past.

Governor Ugwuanyi spoke yesterday when he at­tended the monthly meeting of the PDP in Udenu Local Government Area.

He charged members of the party to unite and work to­wards its progress.

The PDP in Enugu State has been effectively holding its monthly ward, local govern­ment and zonal meetings since the inception of the present ad­ministration in the state, with the participation of the par­ty stakeholders, including all elected and public office hold­ers both at the state and nation­al levels.

Governor Ugwuanyi ad­dressed the enthusiastic PDP supporters at the meeting – which witnessed the decamping of a large number of members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to the PDP.

The APC members in the council, who decamped to the PDP, were led by Hon. Paul C. Okafor.

Ugwuanyi appealed that the doors of the PDP should be opened for all those who intend to join the party to do so.

He added that “the PDP is big enough to accommodate everybody.”

He congratulated the de­campees and asked the PDP ward chairmen to mobilise for more people to join the party in their wards.

Earlier in his remark, the Udenu Local Government Chairman of the PDP, Hon. Emma Chima, expressed de­light at the active participation of the party members, especial­ly the governor, in the meetings of the party.

Chima said that the meet­ing was to celebrate the good­ness of God and appreciate the good works of the governor, as well as receive the decampees into the PDP fold.

On behalf of the decampees, Okafor said that they were hap­py to join the PDP family in the state and requested that his fol­lowers be fully integrated in the affairs of the party.

On his part, Wike, at a sep­arate forum, said that the PDP would be very vigilant as it em­barked on its reconciliation pro­cess after the Supreme Court judgement.

Wike spoke at the interde­nominational special thanks­giving service for PDP’s victory at the apex court at the Rivers State Ecumenical Centre in Port Harcourt.

Governor Wike said that the Supreme Court judgement saved Nigeria and “there is the need to thank God for the sus­tenance of multi-party democ­racy.”

“While we are reconciling, we must be vigilant. Nobody will take me unawares. Satan will never sleep. Satan will al­ways find ways to cause havoc”.

According to him, the sacked chairman of the party, Senator Ali Modu Sheriff, was an agent of the APC, adding that “woe betide any person who is a mole of the deadly party.”

Wike expressed gratitude to God for giving PDP leaders the wisdom to identify that with the emergence of Sheriff, the party was headed for doom and had to retrace its steps.

The governor said that Ni­gerians received the Supreme Court judgement with joy be­cause the future of Nigeria rests with the PDP.

He said that the ruling APC, after winning the 2015 elec­tions, has resorted to excuses and blame game instead of ful­filling the promises they made to Nigerians.

“Two years after the man­date, what is the situation? Ex­cuses and blames without de­livery. Look at how individuals took it upon themselves to de­stroy the party that gave them life”.

“PDP is the only party that is a household name in Nigeria. There is no unit in the country without a member of the PDP,” he said.

The governor said that go­ing forward, Rivers State must get some positive returns on her contributions to the PDP.

“As we help you, you help us. If you don’t help us, we won’t help you. All of us must rise from our unit, ward and lo­cal government areas to mobi­lise people,” Wike charged the party members.
