Kaduna—A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, from Adamawa State, Senator Abubakar Girei, has demanded the immediate sack of the party’s National Working Committee (NWC), over the last general elections.
“The entire National Working Committee, NWC, should relinquish their positions to pave way for the party to be re-positioned,” Girei told reporters in Kaduna yesterday.
He described the party’s defeat during the polls as an act of God and urged members and leadership of the party to stop trading blames over the issue.
In spite of the defeat, Girei said that the PDP still remained what he called the “the largest and the best structured with the most experienced, dedicated and committed members who will not sit and watch greedy, corrupt and inept leadership send their party to its early grave.
“Although the loss suffered by our party in the last elections was an act of God, the national leadership must accept full responsibility for the humiliating defeat,” he said.
“For this loss to be only a temporary setback, the party needs to reinvent, re-engineer and re-brand itself as soon possible in order to bounce back in the next round of elections in 2019.
