The acting chairman of the Board of Trustees (BoT) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Dr. Bello Haliru Mohammed, has resolved to work with the National Working Committee of the party to re-position the party and return to winning ways.
He stated this yesterday while addressing scores of leaders and members of the party who paid him solidarity visits from across the country following his recent appointment.
He stressed that rather than dissipate energy on blaming and pointing accusing fingers at one another over the outcome of the recent general elections, they should brace up, close ranks and devise workable ways and means of reinventing the party as a true national party which many Nigerians have known since 1999.
Mohammed said that what happened during the last elections is not as important as the aftermath, contending that what happens when a man falls is not as important as what he does after the fall. He argued that the 2015 election was PDP’s defining moment which was only capable of bending it but cannot break it.
“This is not the time for finger-pointing and apportioning blames. This is the time that we should overlook the shortcomings of each other and look at the positives so that we can put our wisdom together and move the party forward in furtherance of the excellent democratic profile which our great party has earned among Nigerians over the years”, he said.
He emphasised that the time has come to take the party back to the people at the grassroots where it was rooted, pointing out that this is the only veritable means of reconnecting the party with the people particularly those who left it after feeling disgruntled at the way they were treated.
