The National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Prince Uche Secondus, says the party is ready to save Nigerians from the APC led administration come 2019.
Secondus maintained Nigerians are getting something different from the “change” they expected when they voted in the All Progressives Congress (APC) in 2015.
The PDP boss said this in a statement issued on the sidelines of a meeting of the party’s leadership with its caucus at the National Assembly on Tuesday night Punch reports.
The statement, issued by the Media Adviser to the PDP chairman, Mr. Ike Abonyi, in Abuja on Wednesday, said that Secondus and other members of the National Working Committee of the party, came to rub minds with its National Assembly members on how to save the country.
Secondus said, “I have come with members of the NWC of our party to thank you for the mandate you gave us at the successful National Convention last year and to charge you to redouble your efforts for the eventual humiliation of the APC in 2019.
“The National Assembly is the centre of national politics, Nigeria is sitting on a keg of gun powder waiting to explode, only the PDP can save it.”
“People are being killed on a daily basis, nuclear nepotism is in vogue, you have to come from Daura to be appointed into a federal position.
“This is the time for all to stand up to save this country and all eyes are on the PDP to lead the way, I am ready and determined even to be arrested for us to regain our liberty in this land.
“What we have ruling Nigeria today at the Villa is a broken party and a broken government, spiritually the APC has already left the Villa, what we must fine tune is the physical accomplishment.”
At the meeting which was attended by PDP members in the Senate and House of Representatives including the Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, the Minority Senate Leader, Godswill Akpabio, Secondus promised to relate with the grassroots to ensure the party remains close to the people and understand their needs.
