With the next general elections fast approaching, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has called on Nigerians – youth and adults – to embrace the renewed effort toward rebuilding the nation in order to tackle the menace of insecurity, economic hardship and other challenges Nigerians are experiencing under the present All Progressives Congress (APC) government.
The National Chairman of the Party, Uche Secondus, during the PDP National discourse held today in Abuja under the theme ‘Nation Building: Resetting the Agenda,’ called on Nigerians to rescue the nation by voting in a transparent government that will serve the people’s interest.
He said: “As PDP, we are evolving from who we were to who we ought to be. A principled party of avowed democrats who are committed to building a strong nation whether we are in government or opposition. We are a party that has been through various challenges, ups and downs, good and bad, failure and success, promotion and demotion and yet we are still standing.
“We are a party that despite our differences possesses a strong unity of purpose. We are a party that has lost and won; celebrated and mourned. We spot talent and nurture them and our track record speaks eloquently for us. Our appeal is universal regardless of ethnicity, creed or religion.”
He however said the Party could not do it alone but rather wants Nigerians to concert their efforts to ‘Rescue Nigeria.’ He charged responsible and responsive citizens to: Register to vote, hold elected leaders accountable, seek only candidates that will deliver, vote by voting right and support the ‘Rescue Nigeria’ initiative in its entirety.
