The National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP Prince Uche Secondus has charged its elected members in the National Assembly, NASS, to brace up to the challenges ahead since they are the leaders of the party at the grassroots.
The PDP National Chairman gave the charge on Tuesday night during a meeting with the party’s caucus at the National Assembly.
Secondus emphasized that there was the urgent need for all hands to be on deck to save this country from APC administration that has become a monumental disaster.
He assured the PDP federal lawmakers that the National Working Committee, NWC, under his leadership is determined to take appropriate and right decisions, saying, “we are not going to be in Wadata, we are taking the party to the grassroots where the true owners reside”
The National Chairman of the opposition party noted that Nigerians are going through what they never bargained for under the All Progressives Congress APC, administration with its nuclear nepotism form of government.
Secondus, according to a statement issued by his Media adviser, Ike Abonyi, who led other members of the National Working Committee NWC of the party to the National Assembly, said they came to rub minds and see how “we can save this country”
His words, “I have come with members of the NWC of our party to thank you for the mandate you gave us at the successful National Convention last year and to charge you to redouble your efforts for the eventual humiliation of APC in 2019.
“National Assembly is the centre of national politics; Nigeria is sitting on a keg of gun powder waiting to explode, and only the PDP can save it”
Secondus said that Nigerians have seen what they never bargained for in the last 32 months of APC administration, “people are being killed on daily basis, nuclear nepotism is in vogue, you have to come from Daura to be appointed into a federal position”
He said, “This is the time for all to stand up to save this country and all eyes are on PDP to lead the way, I am ready and determined even to be arrested for us to regain our liberty in this land”
“What we have ruling Nigeria today at the Villa is a broken party and a broken government, spiritually APC has already left the villa, what we must fine tune is the physical accomplishment”
The PDP Chairman charged its NASS members to brace up to the challenges ahead since they are the leaders of the party at the grassroots.
He assured them that the NWC under his leadership is determined to take appropriate and right decisions “we are not going to be in Wadata, we are taking the party to the grassroots where the true owners reside”
The meeting was attended by all PDP members in the Senate and House of Representatives including the Deputy Senate President Ike Ekweremadu, the Minority Senate leader Godswill Akpabio.
