The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has declared that the pervading peace, harmony and unity of purpose that characterized the conduct of its zonal congresses in the North East and South East geo-political zones last Friday and Saturday respectively, further showcased the party’s readiness to take the nation out of the quagmire into which it has been sunk by the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The party said this in a statement yesterday by its National Publicity Secretary, Mr Kola Ologbondiyan in Abuja.
The PDP asserted that the peaceful conduct of its zonal congresses showed the sharp contrast between it and the All Progressives Congress , APC, “whose activities are always enmeshed in selfish contestations, lust for power, bloody clashes, killings and overheating of our national polity”.
The statement said, “The harmony in the PDP as one indivisible family is a direct product of our all-inclusive system, strict adherence to the principle of internal democracy as well as putting the welfare of the people first and above personal interests.
“Such disposition, which is completely lacking in the APC, is the only way to restore good governance and return our dear nation to the path of peace, unity, national cohesion and economic prosperity.
“Our party therefore congratulates and commends our members in the South-East and North-East, particularly the new entrants, for the successful conduct of the exercises.
The main opposition party therefore urged all members of the party across the country to continue to work together “as the nation looks forward to our great party for direction and solution at this critical time”.
