The Director of Social Media of the Peoples Democratic Party, Mr. Adeyanju Adedeji, has urged politicians elected on the platform of the party to always stand by the position of the party and not adopt different stance.
The PDP social media director stressed the need for the party to present a common front as the face of the opposition and alternative to the governing All Progressives Congress (APC).
According to Adeyanju, it smacks of indiscipline and lack of respect for members to express divergent views from the official position of the PDP.
He cited the instance where some senators elected on the platform of the PDP sang the praises of President Muhammadu Buhari over the N6.08 trillion 2016 budget proposal.
“A budget that failed to meet the expectations of Nigerians, address core issues of the economy, unemployment and insecurity; an unrealistic budget, and a budget that has been termed a fraud by our great party, the PDP, but only for our elected senators to take a disparagingly different view from the official position of the party and turn around to praise the president”, Mr. Adeyanju fumed.
“Will a Republican or Labor party senator in the United States of America or United Kingdom disagree with the official position of his party on a fundamental issue such as this and make it public? The answer is never”, he noted.
