Ahead of the 2019 general election, one of the governorship hopefuls in Imo State, a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and former Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, Rt Hon Emeka Ihedioha, has said that with the newly elected executives of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, the party is ready to save the country from sliding to anarchy.
He disclosed this in a statement to newsmen in Owerri, through his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Chibuike Onyeukwu.
According to Ihedioha who was the 2015 Imo PDP, gubernatorial candidate, his conviction was based on the abilities of the newly elected national officers of the party.
He told the new executives that the time has come to hit the ground running ahead of 2019.
His statement said: “The emergence of Prince Uche Secondus, a man who is best described as a pragmatic, loyal party bureaucrat, very well tooled with the mastery of the workings and dynamics of political party administration as the national chairman of our great party, at this time in the history of our party is very significant and indeed an audacious statement by the PDP in our quest to save our dear country from further slide to anarchy.
“I am without any iota of doubt that the newly elected officers are tested men and women who would certainly live above board in the discharge of their duties while ensuring that genuine party members are given sense of belonging with absolute focus and dedication.”
“We urge party faithfuls and indeed Nigerians in general to join hands with the Prince Secondus led National Executive as we begin the onerous task of building a PDP, strong enough to play it’s role in national building as a virile opposition and indeed one that is acceptable to Nigerians as the only credible alternative to the APC come 2019 general elections.”
