We’re born to rule, not to play opposition – PDP



Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has said its successful national convention has repositioned the party to reclaim leadership. The party said it was formed to rule and not to play opposition.

The Akwa Ibom State Publicity Secretary of the party, Ini Ememobong,  declared this to Daily Sun yesterday.

He said the emergence of Mr. Uche Secondus as  national chairman showed that the South South was more prepared for the position. He said the party did not sideline the South West zone as being speculated.

“As at today, even those who were complaining about the election have begun to say otherwise. The truth is when someone loses an election, he feels bad; but after a while reasons come to play. It could have also been you if your state negotiated well, you could have also been on the list and you could have won.

“So, that is behind us now. We are now building a party. I am sure you have felt the impact. The national chairman, who, on the day of his inauguration issued a quit notice to the party in power, is a man who must hit the ground running; and I am sure, you have seen him hitting the ground running.

“Every department of the party has been repositioned for the purpose of taking over power. That was the only reason PDP was formed; it was formed to handle power. We were not formed to play opposition. There are other parties that were formed for the purposes of opposition. They are just strangers to power. We are strangers to opposition. We have to get back to power,” Ememobong said.
