The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) says the party has recovered from the disappointing loss it suffered in the 2015 presidential election.

“Our party has witnessed challenging times after our disappointing loss in the last elections. We moved from pain, despair, soul- searching and now by the grace of the Almighty God, we have started the process of rebuilding confidence in ourselves for a brighter future for the party,” Ag. National Chairman of the PDP, Prince Uche Secondus said at the party’s National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting held on Thursday at the party’s National Secretariat in Abuja.

According to him, the first step pursuant to soul searching was the resignation of Alhaji Adamu Mu’azu and Chief Tony Anenih as National Chairman and Chairman of the Board of Trustees respectively.

Speaking further, Secondus called the attention of Nigerians to the selective implementation of the ongoing anti-corruption fight, as he said members of the party were being singled out for prosecution.

“It would be morally repugnant to target PDP members while seemingly protecting APC members. All we are calling for is an equal and fair treatment of all Nigerians under the law.

“Government should prevent the slide of our dear country into a police state by controlling some of the brazen acts of the security agencies against state institutions as exemplified in the invasion of the Akwa Ibom Government House by some officers of the DSS.

“In the same vein, we call on the federal government to come out straight with Nigerians on the state of our economy, which is gradually sliding into recession.

“It appears that the lack of an economic direction and remedial actions from the government is having a debilitating effect on the economy. Jobs are being lost and small businesses are closing shops as a result of the lack of constructive economic engagement from the APC government,” the party chairman added.
