By now, everyone is bored with all the talk about President Jonathan’s rumoured plans to contest in the 2015 election; what with the President spewing venom at those he termed as “mischief-makers” for spreading the rumours, and the ACN stating in no equivocal terms that they “are not bothered” about whatever road he decides to travel.
Well, the PDP has come out to share their thoughts on the 2015 elections. The party has delivered something of a promise to Nigerians, stating that its members would not be partaking in the forthcoming elections if they failed to deliver on present promises to the people.
‘”We will not come to Nigerians for campaign until we see we have delivered at least 50 per cent of our electoral promises,” said the National Publicity Secretary of the party, Chief Olisa Metuh.
“The PDP will ensure that the government delivers on most of its promises before we come for re-election,” he continued. “This also applies to the states as well. This is why the PDP chairman said the PDP will monitor and supervise activities of its elected officials.
The party is focused to get the elected officials to deliver on their promises and that is the only way for the PDP to maintain its positions as number party in Nigeria.”
The party’s National Chairman, Bamanga Tukur also asked Nigerians to remain united, saying that was the only solution to the negative circumstances the country might be facing.
“Where ever I happen to be and have the opportunity to talk, I remind our people that our postage symbol in those days reads ‘One Nation, One people, One Destiny’,” he said. “Let us all build our nation. It is ours. Let us be the ones responsible for it. If we do so, all the negative things we see today will just disappear. And that will bring us prosperity.”
