The newly registered Peoples Democratic Movement (PDM) has saluted what it called the bravery and statesmanship of the dissenters within the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) for maintaining their cool in the face of utmost provocation and outright oppression during the just concluded PDP Special National Convention, held at Eagle Square, Abuja, on Saturday.
The party’s National Chairman, Malam Bashir Yusuf Ibrahim, in a statement by his Media Advisor, Alaba Yusuf yesterday evening said: “We appreciate the bold, brave and patriotic stand of these delegates for refusing to participate in an election, which they knew gave no even playing ground to all stakeholders.’’
He said the PDM, “a party of true democracy, equity fairness will stand shoulder to shoulder to shoulder with all true democrats who wish to make Nigeria great again through positive political change”.
Some of us never knew what our state Governor claims to be fighting against our own brother, inlaw and President without consulting us to support it after discussions than going to make Rivers people look like traitors to the President. Come back home and think properly for your actions before indicting the entire state. We need Peace and not war.Your children are abroad schooling and enjoying while we are here being used for your selfish interest. Enough is enough with all these troubles you are infecting us and depriving us better opportunity ahead. Nothing good will ever come out from those your allied in APC and the north. Governor Suntai’s mater is on and other serious issues and we yet to see them intervene or profer peace as they say they are working towards for the Nation. 2015 will make the Whole World know your true identity and pray you don’t have skeletons in your cupboards else e no go easy for una at all.
