|Make Sacrifices For PDP, Governor Dickson Tells Party Leaders by Nobody: 10:51am On Mar 05, 2017|
Abuja – As the crisis in the opposition Peoples Democratic Party deepens, the Bayelsa State Governor, Hon. Henry Seriake Dickson, has asked party leaders to bury their self interest and work for the overall effort to salvage the party from disintegration.
The Governor, who is the Chairman of the PDP’s Reconciliation Committee, said no individual interest should be elevated above that of the party, which has the greatest potential to accommodate all shades of Nigerians under its umbrella.
The governor announced that in a bid to nip the crisis in the bud, his committee had started embarking on a wide consultation with party leaders and other critical stakeholders to build consensus and confidence in the party before holding an all-inclusive unity national convention to save the party from collapse.
A statement signed by the Governor’s Special Adviser on Media Relations, Francis Agbo, quoted the governor as making the remarks shortly after the meeting of his committee in Abuja.
According to the governor, party leaders all over the world make sacrifices to consolidate the political system, stressing that PDP leaders cannot do otherwise.
The Governor said, ‘‘I am appealing to all party leaders, critical stakeholders and members across the country to close ranks in the overall interest of our great party.
“Let the revival of our great party be of paramount interest to all and sundry, for we can only further our political interests in a strong political platform.
“We have the potentials to revive the party but we can only do this if we subsume our divergent interests under the umbrella.’’
Governor Dickson said Nigerians are waiting for the PDP to bounce back and play the role of a virile opposition party, warning that anything to the contrary would be a great disservice to the people and the founding fathers of the party
