We will do everything legitimate to bounce back to power - PDP declares


The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has maintained that it will do everything within the confines of the law to ensure that it returns to power in 2019. The national chairman of the party, Uche Secondus, told the Punch in report published on Sunday, February 4, that the PDP remained the best option for the county at the moment. 

He said the opposition party was engaged in reconciliation talks with some members who left the party, adding that the issue of concern to the PDP at the moment was how to rescue the country from incompetent hands. 

 Secondus said: “We are talking to everyone, those who left the party before and those who do not belong to the party. “This is not the time to be talking about automatic tickets or not. Rather, we should all be concerned about how to rescue the country from the claws of incompetent hands. “Is there anyone in the country who is not feeling the pain? Is the market for the PDP members different from that of the APC members? Are those lining up in the queues at petrol stations members of a particular political party? Is electricity being diverted to a particular zone of the country? “As for us, we are discussing with everybody. 

We want everyone back under the umbrella so that we can escape further beating by the APC acidic rain.” The party is also reported to be wooing members of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in the National Assembly with automatic tickets.  This followed fears expressed by members of the APC in the National Assembly that governors of their respective states were after their seats, thereby threatening their chances of getting their return tickets.
