The statement reads: We must come to terms with reality that PDP lost the last general election because of over bearing tendencies of some leaders who imposed candidates on the people.
“It is inevitable that we must change from the old ways and allow the will of the people prevail. Unfolding events clearly show that the PDP is the party for the people. But we must not take them for granted by forcing unpopular candidates on the people.
“The coast is clear that the PDP has the road map for peace, unity and development of Nigeria. Nigerians now know the difference.”
“Popular candidates must be put forward to drive the ship of the party ahead of the next general elections.
The PDP had bright chances of returning to power if all party faithful agree to work together in one accord.
