2023: PDP to review manifesto, reposition

 


 

The opposition Peoples Democratic Party is set to review its manifesto to align with Nigeria’s current socio-political realities.

Our correspondent gathered that this was one of the decisions taken at the party’s National Caucus meeting which ended in the early hours of Thursday.

A source at the meeting, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorised to speak to the media on the issue, said, “We received briefings from the Governor Bala Mohammed-led committee set up to review the 2019 general elections, the state of our party, and also discussed a wide range of issues of national importance.

“The Bala Mohammed Committee is yet to conclude its assignment but substantial progress has been made.”

Asked if the defection of the Ebonyi State Governor, Dave Umahi, was discussed, the source said, “We were briefed by the National Working Committee on efforts made to persuade him to remain.”

Speaking further, the source said, “We also agreed that as part of our agenda to reposition the party, we will be reviewing our manifesto for it to align with current realities in the social-political sphere. It will form part of the agenda of our National Executive Committee meeting holding in a few hours from now.”

Speaking to reporters soon after the caucus meeting, National Chairman of the PDP, Uche Secondus simply said, “We discussed issues affecting our party and our country.“

Also, the Governor of Taraba State, Darius Ishaku, said, “The PDP remains the only party which is nationalistic, we are repositioning ourselves to become stronger.”

Those who attended the meeting which held at the Akwa Ibom Governor’s Lodge, Asokoro, include Governors Udom Emmanuel (Akwa Ibom), Bala Mohammed (Bauchi), Darius Ishaku, (Taraba), former Senate Presidents David Mark and Bukola Saraki, the chairman of the party’s Board of Trustees, Senator Walid Jibrin and a former PDP National Chairnan, Bello Haliru, among others.

Big Brother Naija Lockdown housemate, Ngozi Nlewedim, popularly known as Erica, has berated fellow housemates, Laycon, for gossiping about her with the others. Laycon, who has a very strong feeling for Erica, seems to have been affected by the outcome of rejection as the Abia-born female housemate picked Kiddwaya over him. For this reason, Laycon has been seen at different times and locations discussing Erica and telling fellow housemates how he feels being rejected.
