A group of stakeholders in South-west Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has urged the party to put its house in order ahead of 2023 election for it not to lose and be in opposition again after the polls.
The group’s Executive Director, Mr. Bukky Adeojo, who is also the Director General of an NGO-Face of Waziri-Nigeria made the statement in Lagos recently, stressing the need to cure the malignant virus of division and disharmony bedeviling the party ahead of another general election.
Adeojo advised that it was now time for PDP members all over Nigeria and in the diaspora to close ranks and do the needful, stating that it was important for the party’s chairmanship position remained in the Southern geopolitical zones of the country, especially the “South-west which had been denied for far too long.”
He, however, proposed that the zoning arrangements for the emergence of the presidential candidate should be rested now, adding that what was really urgently required was for the party to churn out a Northern presidential candidate with pedigree and clout to salvage the country from the sorry state, the All Progressives Congress party has led it.
He reiterated that the party needed to field a candidate with the capability to ruthlessly tackle insecurity, unemployment, poverty and other worrisome conditions that plaque Nigeria and Nigerians.
He said, “I’m of the opinion that our great party PDP cannot afford to be in the opposition for another four years because of what is happening to the teeming populace of Nigeria.

“Nigerians are suffering, crying and wailing that they need another party, an alternative to what they are experiencing today.
“We need someone that will bring succour and joy to every home like we used to have it in 2015. For this to happen PDP has to put their house in order to occupy this position in 2023 and if we don’t get it right internally, resolving all crisis ailing us from within it may spell doom for our party.
