2015: Our Best 11 Will Be Presented To The Electorates – PDP



MUAZU-2-620x330The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) National Chairman, Alhaji Adamu Mu`azu, on Tuesday in Abuja, charged party members not to engage themselves in fruitless arguments with the opposition.

He gave the charge when Gov. Ramalan Yero of Kaduna, led a delegation of the party stakeholders in the state to pay him a courtesy call.

“You must engage in discussing topical issues that matter to the people and affect the lives of the common man.

“Do not drag yourself into argument with people that do not know what they are doing, talking about trivialities, ethnicity, religiosity and regionalism.

“Nigeria is one single and indivisible nation, we must continue to make sure that we do whatever it takes to keep us strong and united”, Mu`azu said.

He pleaded with the people of Kaduna state to continue to cooperate with the governor, adding that this was critical to ensure good and purposeful leadership in the state.

The party national chairman added that the cooperation of the people of the state was also critical to ensure that Gov.Yero continued to build on the legacies of his predecessor.

He maintained that the PDP under his leadership would ensure internal democracy and deepen the tenets of true democracy at all levels of government.

“If you want to run for any elective post in our party do not come to me, do not go and stay in the Villa; and do not go and stay at the Government House Kaduna.

“Go to all the nook and crannies of your state and campaign. The power of the people is what is going to be your power.

“Ensure you convince the people on issues at hand; tell them what you and your party stand for and what you intend to do for them.

“If they vote for you, you are my man, you are my candidate. Internal democracy will not only be run well and properly, it will be deepened”, Mu`azu said.

He stressed that the only people that would survive under the party`s present condition were those who would campaign at the grassroots.

“We will not hand pick our candidates, this is a new era. Our best 11 will be presented and they will surely be the winners”, Mu`azu said.

Earlier, Gov. Yero said that his priority was to ensure fairness to all party members, adding that fairness and social justice was the only way to sustain leadership.

“We will take the path of fairness, social justice and equity in all that we do in Kaduna state, we will set an example in the country”. He said.

The governor said that the visit was to assure the national chairman of the loyalty and commitment of the people of Kaduna state to the PDP leadership.

He pledged that the PDP, Kaduna chapter, would ensure the success of the party in the 2015 general election in all levels of government.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the governor was accompanied on the visit by chairmen of the 23 Local Government Areas of the state.

Also in the governor’s entourage were members of the State House of Assembly led by the Speaker.

Others were youth and women leaders from the state, zonal leaders and party stakeholders in the state (NAN)

He noted that even if the promises are not 100% fulfilled but the citizens see signs of commitment and progress, other parties should forget about displacing APC in 2023.

The former Lagos State Governor added that opposition parties are not doing better than the APC, hence should not expect Nigerians to vote for them come 2023.

He said: “Some governors have joined us, from where we think we could not get voters before. To retain power in 2023, certainly if we keep our promises, people will vote for us. It is that simple, that is politics,” the former Lagos governor said.

“If you do what you say you will do, even if you don’t do hundred percent and they see that you are making progress, they will even want you to finish what you started.”
