The Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Lagos State, Otunba Segun Adewale has called on all members of the party to be united and ensure that the party eventually win the rerun for the House of Representatives seat in Ajeromi Ifelodun local government.
Adewale pleaded with a faction of the party in the area who is aggrieved and urged them to jettison their anger for the sake of peace and interest of the party, he stated further that returning Hon Rita Orji back to the house should be a collective effort of all members, that whatever the issues are, promised to apply political solutions to them so that peace can reign in the local government.
He said that no matter the disagreements, party members should be seen as one big family, that if those who are aggrieved decide to work against the party’s candidate, it will send wrong signals to innocent supporters and members of the public that the party is in disarray.
The Chairman said that members should come out enmass to canvass for votes, man all the polling units where rerun will take place and that PDP’s votes must be adequately guarded to avoid electoral robbery by the APC.
According to him, those who are aggrieved should not burn the bridge now because they may still need to pass through that same bridge in the nearest future, but whatever they do now will affect them when they also the party. No one reigns forever. Their time will surely come if we are all patient as service to humanity has no expiry date. The structure of the party must not be weaken to the advantage of those in the opposition or ruling party.
Adewale assured members that if the party PDP emerge eventually as many progress loving members of the party would wish, it will affect the party positively in the future elections, the morale of members will be boosted
But if the internal rancor is allowed to fester to the point of setting members against one another, the party would be seen as unserious party who is not worthy of being followed. Whatever the issues, all parties involved should work together and settle all issues after the election in the overall interest of the party.
Adewale said that the victory of Ajeromi will be a victory for PDP across the nation, he added that, the one seat in that local government is very important to national agenda of the party.______________________________________________ Follow us on Twitter at @TheWailersNG Copyright 2018 THEWAILERSNG.
