Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu has said that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is determined to “change the change”.
Ekweremadu was referring to the campaign slogan of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) which is “change”.
The senator made the comment after arriving in Abuja from Port Harcourt, Rivers State where he attended the PDP National convention on Saturday, May 21, 2016.
This was disclosed by his spokesman, Uche Anichukwu, according to The Cable.
“For the purpose of clarification, there are no factions within the PDP family as I speak. What we have are contending interests. Such is common in any party. Yes, there were some disagreements, but the good thing is that we have not allowed such disagreements to degenerate into a major crisis that would warrant factions,” Anichukwu quoted Ekweremadu as saying.
“Instead, what happened in Port-Harcourt over the weekend further confirms PDP’s capacity to resolve issues in favour of laid down precepts and in the overall interest of our great party and nation.
“I am sure what happened in Port-Harcourt remains a disappointment for those who were expectant of major crisis and factions in the PDP because we emerged from the convention more determined to change the change, to save our economy, reposition the electoral process, and make life more bearable for the suffering masses of Nigeria again,” he added.
The PDP dissolved its National Working Committee and sacked Chairman, Ali Modu Sheriff during the convention.
