Senate President David Mark has declared that the ruling Peoples Democratic Party will not sink as being anticipated by some people as a result of the current crisis rocking the party.
Mark stated this on Thursday in a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr. Kola Ologbondiyan, ahead of the forthcoming National Executive Committee, NEC, meeting of the PDP.
The senate president assured Nigerians that leaders of the party would come together to save it from its current crisis.
He said, “We will arrest the current situation and save our party from further disintegration. Some Nigerians are talking about Tsunami in the PDP because of the defection by some members of our party holding elective and non-elective positions.
“As leaders, we will not sit by and continue to allow this drift. We shall do the needful and ensure that we save our great party”, Mark said.
While admitting that the development was a challenge, Mark added that genuine efforts would be made to reconcile the party men and women with the aim of bringing peace and unity into the party.
He also expressed optimism that the Senate would remain a united family and that “what affects the welfare and well-being of Nigerians would be the interests of the Senate”.
