PDP Begs Amaechi, Others: We Can Settle and Work Together

Posted: December 6, 2013 in Uncategorized

The Peoples Democratic Party is not giving up yet, despite loosing five of its governors to the APC in one say in an historic political merger. The party says Governor Rotimi Amaechi, who it frustrated with suspension and other forms of intimidation, is not gone yet. Now they want Amaechi and others back.

Less than 24hours after PDP chairman, Bamanga Tukur told journalists at the National Assembly, after meeting with PDP Senators, that the governors are not gone yet, the party has released a statement:

“The fact remains that our elected and appointed officers, including our governors share the same ideals and principles with the administrators of the party and remain unflinchingly committed to the visions of the founding fathers.

“The PDP is not only a political party but a belief which cannot be easily jettisoned. It is a belief in national interest; a belief in the unity of the country and in satisfying the interests of the common man,” said PDP through its publicity secretary in a statement on Thursday.

But reacting to Tukur and his hurriedly written statement, the five governors who left PDP said:
“Instead of facing the reality he is talking about people not leaving. The movement of people away from the PDP is not under his control, what is under his control is the level of impunity and brigandage that is within the party. He has powers to do that within the PDP.

“He has no powers to determine whether people leave the PDP or not. He can control the machinery of the PDP, but he cannot control the conscience of the people.”
