Jimi Agbaje, a candidate for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) national chairmanship, on Wednesday said the party will survive its present crisis.
Agbaje, who contested for the Lagos state governorship in 2015 under the PDP, said this while speaking with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Port Harcourt, Rivers state.
He stated that the delegates for the PDP national convention decided to extend the tenure of the Ahmed Makafi-led national caretaker committee in order to keep th party stronger.
Agbaje said: “It is obvious that from the situation we found ourselves, we must keep the PDP alive. It is the still the veritable platform for the opposition.
“So, the best option is what we have taken, which is to extend the life of the caretaker committee, to expand it as we have decided and to give room for whatever litigation.”
He noted that PDP members believe that the truth will prevail at the end because the majority will always have their way.
“The PDP is definitely not going to die. The PDP is going to fight for its staying alive.”
He expressed hope that his troubled party will bounce back stronger and united at the end of the year.
“I’m sure that within the year, we will be very much stronger,” he said
