Governor Hassan Dankwambo of Gombe State, has urged national leaders of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to sacrifice their personal interest in order for peace to reign in the party.
He made the call on Friday at the PDP North-East Zonal Caucus meeting in Abuja.
According to the Gombe governor, now is the best time to sacrifice personal interest in order for the party to move forward.
“In the past, so many things have remained issues of great concern.
“Now is the time to make sacrifice for all of us on old or new things that come our ways as a duty to the party.
“Everybody is weeping and crying at the same time.
“If anybody expects any other person to call him to his wing, we may not get to our destination, because the wing may not be too strong.
“It is the wing of sacrifice that is strong enough to take us to the right destination”, Dankwambo said.
The governor, however, urged PDP leaders from the North-East Zone to be careful in reaching a decision on national offices of the party zoned to the zone.
“We must avoid decisions that will further divide our members or bring more problems to our party.
“We should respect the views of our stakeholders and take decisions that will unite us”, he stressed.
Speaking at the meeting, Governor Darius Ishaku of Taraba State expressed the zone’s interest in the office of the National Secretary of the PDP.
According to him, this is one of the ways to easily resolve the protracted crisis in the party.
Gov. Ishaku also expressed optimism that the leadership crisis rocking the party would soon be resolved.
