Yesterday, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) had issued in a statement, what can be addressed to as an assurance, to its members, both old and new ones of adequate protection, a levelling playing ground at every level of political engagements and aspirations as well as accommodation come 2019 general elections in Nigeria.
PDP ASSURES DEFECTED MEMBERS A FAIR PLAYING GROUND:
This was, however, pronounced yesterday by Mr Kola Ologbondiyan, PDP National Publicity Secretary, who issued in a statement on Saturday 4th August 2018. That the party has taken note of all concerns highlighted by leaders of the party, as it concerns accommodation of interests, and alignments for new members.
Kola, however, has revealed that the PDP has long taken extensive measures to ultimately ensure that no individual or group of persons was short-changed in any way.
KOLO OLOGBONDIYAN’S STATEMENTS READS IN PARTS:
” While the People’s Democratic Party appreciates and values such concerns, it is instructive to inform the general public that the national leadership of our dear party has already envisaged the challenges of an enlarged family and has since made adequate arrangements that would effectively cover all interests for the task ahead,” says Kola.
“The repositioned PDP has amply learned from the past. All members must, therefore, dispel every fear concerning control of our structure as well as processes for selections of candidates for elections, especially on the choice of our presidential candidate, as such will be handled with the strictest adherence to the principle of internal democracy and zero tolerance for impositions.”
The Peoples Democratic Party spokesman noted that the opposition party had become a significant centre of new patriotic and broad-based engagements by an overwhelming majority of Nigerians, across the country.
Kola further explained that this was in line with their renewed democratic realignment towards rescuing the nation from the All Progressives Congress (APC) led government.
Kola, however, has described the PDP as the only reliable platform for all Nigerians to democratically, and transparently join forces, in a bid to produce a credible president and a government of national unity.
