THE Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) said yesterday that the concerns raised by former President Olusegun Obasanjo in respect of the party have been extensively addressed “in the refocused and repositioned PDP”
A statement by PDP national publicity secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, he made it clear that the part’s reforms and rebranding efforts, particularly, the full entrenchment of internal democracy, all-inclusiveness and re-engineered mechanisms for good governance, have returned the party to the much desired political platform that represents the wishes and aspirations of Nigerians ahead of the 2019 general election.
The party noted that In the last five months, since the coming of the new leadership, under Prince Uche Secondus, the PDP has undergone extensive re-engineering in direct responses to suggestions, criticisms and wide-range of constructive counsels from Nigerians across board. He insisted that the PDP remains the only political platform with genuine followership and structure in all the electoral wards across the local government areas, states and the six geo-political zones in the country.
“Moreover, the repositioned PDP, remains resolute in defending the rights and freedom of Nigerians, irrespective of their ethnicity, creed or political persuasions, against the unrelenting impunity, violations and dictatorial proclivities of the dysfunctional All Progressives Congress (APC) and its incompetent Federal Government. This is in spite of the harassment and persecution of our leaders and members as well as unbridled smear campaign against our party.”
