Senate wants PDP to hasten reforms

25 December 2012, 10:01

Calabar - The PDP needs to be repositioned for the party to retain its mass appeal in the 2015 general elections and beyond, the Senate leader, Sen. Victor Ndoma-Egba, said on Monday.

He gave the suggestion while addressing  the party's chieftains in Calabar.

According to him, keeping abreast with the times as well as identifying with the yearnings of the people will endear the party to the electorate.

"PDP must keep reinventing and reforming its structure and plan of action in line with the yearnings of the electorate.

"We must therefore get ourselves properly attuned to the times to remain constantly the preferred party in the country.

"If we do not reinvent ourselves in this country, other people are getting set and studying our possible shortcomings.

"We must guard against this as we strategise for 2015. We must be careful, too, so that we do not get fatigued.

"But I must advise that the days of ‘carry go’ and days of  imposition of unpopular candidates are gone.  We can only persuade the electorate," he added.

The senate leader also advised the party's executive to continue to work for unity and discipline among the party faithful.

"This party is far bigger than any individual. There must be party discipline and every member, including myself must be bound by  the party’s decision. However, there should be level-playing field for every member," he said.

The  party's state Chairman,  Mr Ntufam Okon, commended the senate leader for his contributions  to the activities of the National Assembly, saying his role had done the people of the state proud.

He said the growth of the PDP in the state stemmed from Ndoma-Egba’s moral and financial contributions, noting that he had made similar contributions at the national level of the party.
