The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) can return to power in 2019. Former Senate President David Mark has the winning formula.
According to Senator, PDP had electoral misfortunes in the last general elections because of imposition of candidates against the wishes of the people.
“We must come to terms with reality that PDP lost the last general election because of overbearing tendencies of some leaders who imposed candidates on the people,” Mark told party faithful at a stakeholders meeting held in his country home Otukpo, Benue state on Monday.
“It is inevitable that We must change from the old ways and allow the will of the people prevail. Unfolding events clearly show that the PDP is the party for the people . But we must not take them for granted by forcing unpopular candidates on the people,” he said.
“The coast is clear that the PDP has the road map for peace, unity and development of Nigeria. Nigerians now know the difference.”
Senator Mark therefore advised party members that the popular candidates must be put forward to drive the ship of the party ahead of the next general elections. He stressed that the PDP has bright chances of returning to power if all party faithful agree to work together in one accord.
To achieve that, Senator Mark stated that people must learn to subject their individual or personal interest for the larger interests of the people. That way, he believes that victory would be assured.
