PDP begs Nigerians for forgiveness, wants another chance


Mr Adetunji Omotola, a member of the board of trustees of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), South Africa chapter, has urged the party's leadership to involve Nigerians in the diaspora particularly youths in the 2019 polls.

Giving a keynote speech on Monday, March 26, 2018, at an event in Abuja with the theme: Nation-building: Resetting The Agenda, he admitted that although the party did its best while in government, it was not void of mistakes.

He said the PDP had lost every moral ground and was mortally afraid of facing the 2019 general elections "because Nigerians will always remember their past and punish them one more time for economically plundering the country".

Dr Cairo Ojougboh said that he defected to the All Progressives Congress to protect the interest of the people of Delta, knowing that they had worked very hard for the party. It was all part of an evolution process without which there can be no maturity.

In a statement issued by the PDP National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, yesterday, said "the connection between the timing of happenings in the court case and the intrusions of the APC in the entire matter has assumed a worrisome dimension".

"For over 30 years, the military in league with some politicians, led this country until 1999 when they were pressured to return to the barracks through combined democratic efforts from both within and outside the country".

"Within those 16 years, the party, which I now have the privilege of leading, was able to lay the foundation blocks of our nascent democracy by setting up and nurturing vital democratic institutions that will ensure its survival".
