Bayelsa State governor, Seriake Dickson has said the Peoples Democratic Party lacks leaders with experience.
Dickson said this in Yenagoa, his state capital, on Sunday while addressing journalists.
He said there were internal forces within the party that were working against the emergence of a cohesive and strong PDP.
“I have invested enormous efforts in rebuilding the PDP and the work of rebuilding hasn’t been successful,” he said.
“PDP has a lot of work to do to become a formidable opposition party and I think that most PDP leaders lack the experience of opposition.
“But I remain optimistic. I pray the party overcomes its internal challenges, and I have been very prayerful because Nigeria needs a strong PDP as the country has seen the failure of the APC.
“Nigeria needs PDP, and I remain hopeful that the party survives.”
