The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Governors’ Forum, has vowed to ensure the leading opposition platform defeats the All Progressives Congress (APC) in 2019.
Delta Governor, Ifeanyi Okowa spoke in Abuja on Thursday after the national chairman, Uche Secondus, inaugurated the PDP National Campaign Council for the 2019 general elections.
The governor said it was time for the party’s leadership to stand strong and united to encourage party members.
Okowa noted that there was tendency for people to be afraid when things were going wrong, saying it was time to go back to the grassroots and strengthen the people.
“We know that the people are with us in this race that we run. We are always strengthened when we stay together.
“It is a time for our strength to be tested and that strength lies in our will and our commitment to truly deliver the votes to the party in 2019,” Okowa said.
The Chairman, PDP Board of Trustees, Sen. Walid Jibrin, advised that as the party goes into full campaigns for the election, it was necessary to avoid any form of impunity.
“We should embrace collective decision that will involve everybody, we should never leave anyone among us aggrieved. Instead of personal interest we must respect Human and Individual dignity and group dynamism.
“We must shun all pomp of power and boast that I or only we can make it. We must involve all of us, the long serving members and the decampees,” he said.
