Governor Shema upbeat PDP is beating challenges

23 January 2014, 15:14Augustine Osayande

Abuja - Katsina State governor, Ibrahim Shema, said the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) was overcoming its problems and stability was gradually returning to the organisation.

Speaking at a meeting of PDP state chairmen in Katsina, the governor said the initial hiccups were not alien to any party.

He added that despite challenges PDP would emerge victorious in 2015.

“Stability is coming back to PDP. The most difficult thing in life is the management of success and we have succeeded for the past 15 years. PDP is the only party that has no religious tribal or ethnic border. PDP does not belong to an individual. It is a party for the people by the people,” Shema said.

Chairman of the forum, Dr Emmanuel Agboh, said the meeting was aimed at discussing national issues, especially as it concerns the recent change of guard in the PDP.

“The new chairman should look into the books, look for the problems and pave ways to ensure we do not plunge into such crisis again,” he said.

 Agboh also lauded developmental strides recorded in Katsina state and advocated for a policy mandating persons aspiring for elective positions under the PDP to show elaborate credentials of being true party members.

The ruling party has been characterized by infighting culminating in the defection of legislators and the recent resignation of chairman, Bamanga Tukur.
