PDP hails new chairman's leadership style

18 February 2014, 18:31

Abuja - The ruling People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has attributed the current surge of defections back to the party on the exceptional leadership qualities of new chairman, Adamu Mu'azu.

Mu'azu was recently appointed to the helm of the party, succeeding Bamanga Tukur, whose tenure was characterized by infighting and subsequent defections largely to the All Progressives Congress (APC).

“Nigerians will recall that while being sworn-in, Mu'azu pledged his determined effort and total commitment to breaking all barriers to peace and cohesion so as to halt the dwindling fortunes of the PDP. He has pursued this with vigor, sincerity and open heart and the result is manifest,” PDP National Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh, said.

Metuh stated that the APC, the major beneficiary to the defections, was now faced with the “reality of its hollowness” after the party displayed “political immaturity” in handling its “fantasized majority” in the National Assembly and the presumed control of states of Sokoto, Kano, Nasarawa, Kwara and Imo where the people have now rejected them.

He urged all Nigerians who were either “deceived or forced” into the APC, to ignore the alleged blackmail by its leadership and feel free to exercise their fundamental rights and liberate themselves.

“PDP is the only party committed to the interest of the people, providing equal opportunities for all Nigerians to pursue and realize their political aspirations.”
