PPA repositions, harps on discipline among members

ENUGU—Preparatory to the 2010 gubernatorial election in Anambra State and the 2011 general elections in the country, the Progressive Peoples Alliance (PPA), says there is no going back on its  resolve to instill party discipline in its members.

The party spoke, just as it added that its agenda on internal democracy stays.

The national chairman of PPA, Mr. Larry Esin, spoke while  rounding off the first phase of his nationwide tour, to meet stakeholders with a view to charting the way forward for the party.

The first phase of the tour took him to the South East and South-South states.

“The new national executive of the PPA has started repositioning the party on a good note. We are upbeat about the repositioning and by the grace of God, by the time the nation is ready for the 2010 gubernatorial election and the 2011 general elections, we should have reached a level where we can beat our chest and say we can win at the national level and in as many states as possible.

“The bottom line is to be elected into government and use that as springboard to transform the nation,” Esin said.

The party chairman said that his team, in the course of the South-East and South-South tour, found, to their chagrin, that the PPA had been infiltrated by some agents of other parties opposed to it, knowing its potentials ahead of the forthcoming polls and bent on destabilising it.

“Such agents of destabilisation, planted by some groups in our party, have been identified as they exposed themselves by their acts of indiscipline and we have commenced the process of removing them,” he said.

He further said, “besides removing the agents of destabilisation from our great party, let me make it clear that there is no room for indiscipline in our great party. Our members must be disciplined in all party affairs so that we can move forward.”
