Governor Seriake Dickson of Bayelsa State has called on leaders of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, to support Prince Uche Secondus-led National Working Committee, NWC, saying without the needed support, the leadership cannot deliver on its goals.
The governor said it was by so doing that the PDP will be able to effectively lead a coalition to challenge All Progressives Congress, APC, in 2019 general election.
The governor in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Francis Agbo, vowed to intensify consultations with party leaders across board, including those who had defected from the party with the view to bringing them back.
Dickson, who is also the Chairman of the PDP Standing Committee on Reconciliation, said: “Now that a new leadership has been put in place, what PDP stakeholders and leaders owe the NWC is their unflinching support, for without that, the PDP cannot regain its lost glory.
‘’The PDP is not owned by any individual, it belongs to all Nigerians, so all of us should remain united under the umbrella. Let me reiterate my call on those who has left the party to return to the fold, for PDP remains home to all.”
