The party also hailed the PDP Governors’ Forum for the smooth transition of leadership, saying the development reflects the unity and sense of purpose within its fold, especially at this rebuilding time.
Metuh said Ondo State Governor Olusegun Mimiko is eminently equipped for his new role as the Chairman of the Forum while commending the governors for their continued commitment towards the party as it reengineers and repositions to regain power in 2019.
He said recent political events in the country have continued to vindicate the PDP as “the only true national platform committed to the national interest, where all citizens as equal partners are free to hold opinion and aspire to any position, no matter how high, without regard to creed, class or ethnic considerations and in which no individual or group of individuals can claim ownership or attempt to appropriate control”.
It also thanked the immediate past Chairman of the Forum, former Akwa-Ibom State Governor, and current Senator Godswill Akpabio and other past governors of the PDP for their stewardship, while urging the present governors to continue to work together and make the PDP a model of development and good governance in the country.
