PDP National Chairman, Uche Secondus, has stated that Nigeria needs good leaders in strategic positions to impede the drift from growth, and place the country on the right path.
He made known that the country was currently in desperate need of persons with high sense of patriotism in their vein as leaders to lift it out of the wood.
Secondus declared yesterday when he handed over the nomination certificates for governorship to its candidates for the November 16, 2019 elections in Bayelsa and Kogi states.
“Everyone in this country today is leaving in fear of either hunger or insecurity and the situation calls for all hands to be on deck,” he said.
Secondus called on the Federal Government to pay careful attention to the alarm from the World Bank that the nation’s economy was going insolvent unless urgent steps were taken to address the situation.
He admonished the gubernatorial flag bearers in the two states to see their victory as an invitation to serve not to be masters over their people.
“No victor no vanquished” and strive to bring all PDP families together for the challenges ahead, which is enormous. It is not yet time for celebration; bring your people together and get to work immediately as time is of essence. A totally reformed PDP does not believe in winner takes all. Moreover, the work ahead requires all hands to be together in the two states to achieve the inevitable victory.”
“The transparency that greeted your primaries is a continuation of our vow to have internal democracy working in our party which was demonstrated to the world last October at the presidential primaries when PDP conducted the freest and fairest ever presidential primaries in the nation’s political history,” he stated.
