Former Senate President, Senator David Mark has made an appeal to members of his party, The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) to ensure that the party’s non-elective convention coming up on the 12th of August is hitch-free.
This appeal was made in a message issued by his Media Assistant, Paul Mumeh while conveying Senator Mark’s goodwill wishes to delegates who are to attend the convention.
David Mark, however also sounded a note of caution to the delegates, saying the PDP must not make any more mistakes, especially seeing the PDP just recently resolved a leadership tussle which has be-deviled the party for the past two years.
The immediate past Senate President said “We have come this far through a tortuous journey . We cannot afford to make another mistake that could affect the fortunes of the party in the days ahead,”
He went further to re-affirm his commitment to the party stating that he would never dump the party even if he had to remain the last man standing.
He said “Even if I will be the last man standing in the PDP, I will remain in PDP . I have no reasons whatsoever to leave the party…I have risen to where I am on the platform of the party. The PDP has a manifesto and I believe in it.
“Those who are decamping from PDP to APC are fair weather friends of the Party.
“So, the point I want to make is that I remain in PDP and I will work hard with other faithful members to bring it back.
He went further to say “This is democracy, there will always be a winner and a loser in every election. Both parties must accept the outcome in a free and fair contest and move on,”
