The South-East region of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has announced that it has begun reaching out to its disgruntled members who have deserted to other political parties.
At its zonal meeting in Enugu, the party announced the move, noting that it was part of a larger strategy to regain power in the region.
It said it hoped the program would assist strengthen public backing for the country’s political and historical progress.
In a recent speech, Governor Peter Mbah of Enugu State called on party leaders and faithful in the region to step up to the challenge of restoring the party to its once-dominant position.
Mbah, the party’s zone leader, has stated that the organization’s financial, administrative, and operational strategies need to be revised.
He was confident that the local chapter of the party would soon see renewed success.
Mbah remarked, “We have reduced a lot of weight, as the National Vice Chairman South-East accurately observed.
“Today, whenever you mention the Labour Party, the All Progressives Congress, the New Nigeria Peoples Party, and so on, you are actually referring to PDP members,” he said.
But providence has put a lot on us in the history of the party, and it is our responsibility to guide its affairs and restore it to the preeminent position it has always occupied in the political and historical growth of our country.
And to get back to the top, we’ll need to investigate things like financial, administrative, and operational plans.
The Governor added that the party needed to start planning how to regain the “pole position” it had previously had.
He explained that this meant the party needed to “first of all consolidate our support base as a party, and now reach out to our brothers and sisters, who may have felt aggrieved for one reason or the other and left the party to see how we can bring them back.”
