PDP heeds APC’s counsel, returns to drawing board



In view of its performance during the last general elections, the PDP is going back to the drawing board to review everything that got them to where they have found themselves, hoping to come out stronger and better.

Recall that APC National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed had admonished the PDP to stop being a cry baby and come to terms with the cold, hard reality that its fortunes have since plummeted and that it is now in opposition. He said PDP should be strategising about the daunting task ahead of it.

So, the National Working Committee (NWC) of the party has constituted a post-election assessment committee to review and evaluate the party’s performance in the just concluded general elections.

PDP National Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh in a statement on Sunday in Abuja, said that the committee, which would be formally inaugurated on May 5 at the party`s national headquarters, would make recommendations on how to reposition the party.

It listed the membership of the committee to include: Sen. Ike Ekweremadu (Chairman), Governors Godswill Akpabio of Akwa Ibom, Theodore Orji of Abia and Ibrahim Dankwambo of Gombe state.

Other members are: Mr Nyeson Wike, Rivers Governor-elect, Malam. Ibrahim Shekarau, Minister of Education, Alhaji Abdulkadir Kure, Mr Emeka Ihedioha, Deputy Speaker, House of Rrepresentatives, Mr Abba Moro, Minister of Internal Affairs and Alhaji Adamu Waziri.

The statement also named Sen. Ahmed Makarfi, Mr Makanjuola Ogundipe, Mr Pegba Otemolu, Mrs Funmi Ayoola as members while Sen. Walid Jibril would serve as secretary of the committee.

    This is what I expected and top of their agenda, should be replacing the current NWC especially the party chairman.

    IGG…Initial Gra Gra! I doubt PDP has the gene to remain and play the role of an opposition party. Goodluck to them, no pun intended.
