The Chairman of the PDP Post Convention Reconciliation Committee,Hon. Henry Seriake Dickson, has appealed to aggrieved members of the People’s Democratic Party not to remain in their aggrieved state as their issues will be addressed.
A statement signed by the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Mr. Francis Agbo, quoted Dickson as having made the comment while addressing aspirants of the last National Convention of the party held in December, 2017 at the Wadata Plaza Headquarters òf the party in Abuja on Thursday.
He commended the aspirants for demonstrating a willingness to sacrifice their individual interest for the progress of the party.
He explained that the meeting was designed to thank the membership of the PDP for clinging onto the party especially through “this trying period.”
He said, “This is an opportunity to thank you all for your contributions to the development, sustenance of our party especially at this trying period.
“If we had this meeting three years ago, this place would have been filled to the brim but since after the unfortunate event where the change came and gave us a terrible change, it seems that even people who profited so much from our party, have gone to the other side and yet people like you, steadfast members of the party, are still in the PDP.
“Let me use this opportunity to call for more understanding and solidarity by members of our party and greater willingness to sacrifice for the general good, to sacrifice individual ambition, individual interest for the greater good, which is what you people have clearly displayed.
“And I will like to also make a call to our party men now that they are seeing things clearly. Crossing over to the other side is not the solution. Stay back, strengthen, rebuild and reposition this national platform that we already have.
“Let me use this opportunity to call for more understanding and solidarity by members of our party and greater willingness to sacrifice for the General good, to sacrifice individual ambition, individual interest for the greater good, which is what you people have clearly displayed.”
Dickson said that the meeting was designed to effectively interract with the aspirants in order to hear their stories and the proferred solutions to the crisis rocking the party.
