The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in its fresh statement called all of its alienated members to take advantage of the window of dialogue offered to them and not to be a toy in the hands of those who do not wish Nigeria and its democracy well. The party said that attempts to discredit President Goodluck Jonathan are useless as “members of one big family, no challenge was insurmountable.”
The statement was issued today, September 15, by the PDP National Publicity Secretary, Chief Olisa Metuh.
The party, that is now often referred to as ‘old PDP’ due to its recent factionalization, believes that the current problem can be resolved through the PDP crisis resolution mechanism but it has been amplified by some political actors looking for quick photo-ups through sensationalization in the media.
“Very unfortunately, the easiest way to gain prominence today is to attack the President and the leadership of the party, not on issues of governance or on alternative direction of governance but in the pedestrian that borders on sheer mudslinging,” the statement reads.
PDP further stated that it try its best to further support its commitment to improve lives of all the Nigerians.
