Former Chairman of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Lagos chapter, Otunba Segun Adewale, has called for true and sincere reconciliation of all aggrieved members in the South West by the party’s national leadership under Senator Ahmed Makarfi to avert the impending doom on the party by 2019.
The PDP chieftain, made the call on Friday in a statement made available to newsmen, pointing out that this was not the time for any group within the fold to claim victory over another, saying Nigerians were looking up to the PDP by 2019 as their hope and the “only credible alternative to the ruling APC lies and deceits.”
Adewale said what the Makarfi led national caretaker committee must do at this trying to avert the impending doom was to seek the reconciliation of all aggrieved members and not pursue vendetta.
“All members of the PDP must be reconciled back to the party for her to regain the lost glory. This is not a time for any group to claim victory over another. Now is the time for true and sincere reconciliation. Nigerians are looking up to us by 2019. We are the hope of Nigerians, the only credible alternative to the ruling APC lies and deceits,” Adewale said.
The PDP chieftain, who said that Nigerians on March 28, 2015, voted the PDP out of power due to disunity within the fold; a change he claimed had gone wrong as the promised change had practically grounded not only the country’s economy, among others, however, argued that not only should the ruling APC be blamed for the woes but also the PDP for losing power to the APC.
“A lot has been written about how the APC has mismanaged the social and economic states of our nation in just two years. Yes, you can blame the APC for fielding those who cannot manage our affairs effectively. Blame the APC for deceiving Nigerians with impracticable promises, blame them for playing the ‘blame game’ when they should have taken responsible actions to remedy their inactions, but above all, blame the PDP for losing power to these incapable hands in the ruling party, APC.
