Aggrived members should be grateful to PDP - Tukur

17 October 2013, 16:28

Abuja - The chairman of the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Bamanga Tukur, urged aggrieved members to desist from working against the party saying it helped them gain popularity.

“Without PDP, the people that are today working against the party would be where they are now. It is the privilege the PDP ticket gave them that today brought their popularity and their current leadership positions. So, they should be thankful to the party that built them to achieve their dreams,” he said.

His sentiments come amid infighting within the party. A group has since broken away from the party questioning his leadership and opposing President Goodluck Jonathan’s re-election plans.

Turku maintained he embraced democracy.

“I have a special agenda to turn the party into the engine room of democracy in Africa, and I know about the battle I face because the majority of our politicians are not democrats; they replace democracy with dictatorship, consensus with imposition. My administration must put an end to this for our democracy to grow,” he maintained.
