Abuja - The ruling People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has applauded President Goodluck Jonathan for his initiatives towards technological advancements in the country.
Party spokesman, Olisa Metuh, cited the establishment of the National Institute of Construction Technology in Uromi, Edo state, the new national automobile policy and the implementation of power sector reforms among others.
He subsequently urged Nigerians to continue supporting the PDP, arguing that it remained the only party that could guarantee a government committed to the national interest and the welfare of citizens.
“The party commended President Goodluck Jonathan for his steadfastness in delivering on his Transformation Agenda and not allowing himself to be distracted by the antics of the opposition. It however charged all its elected and appointed officials at all levels to redouble their efforts and work harder by curbing all wastes and keep on being prudent in handling the nation’s resources to ensure that Nigerians not only continue to enjoy the benefit of having the PDP in power but also vote en-masse for it in the general elections. We have noted the steadfastness and vigour with which President Goodluck Jonathan has been pursuing his Transformation Agenda despite efforts by the opposition to distract and take him of the course. We commend him for the initiatives resulting in the accelerated development of key sectors of the economy,” Metuh, the National Publicity Secretary of the party, said.
He said the party had thoroughly appraised political developments across the country, especially the events of the last few months and submitted that in spite of the challenges.
“PDP remains the preeminent party, well ahead and better than the opposition and still the most organized party in Nigeria with genuine followership in all the nooks and crannies of the country.”
Metuh claimed more people are eager to join the party.
“The PDP is a party founded on democratic ideology by worthy and respectable leaders. It is the only party committed to the national interest, in which no person, group, tribe or religion can claim to play dominant role. We have remained strictly committed to our ideology based on the principles of patriotism and service to the people and this explains why self-centered and undemocratic elements find it very difficult to adapt to the dictates of the party.”
