Ahead of the December 9, 2017 elective convention of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), former President of the Senate, Senator David Mark has warned against impunity and imposition of candidates.
Senator Mark called on party faithful to reflect on the issues that led to the fall of the PDP in 2015 and do well to avoid the pitfalls at the convention.
“We must say no to impunity. We must reject imposition of candidates on the party. Elders of the party including myself must ensure justice, fairness and equity. The people must be allowed to decide.
“Nigerians are eagerly waiting for the PDP and we must not fail them. We need a leader of the PDP that is a bridge builder, assessable , possess the character and integrity to lead the party to victory in 2019”.
He recalled how he tried in vain to resolve the intractable conflict between the Senator Ali Modu Sherrif and Ahmed Makarfi factions and submitted “for me, I will always stand for the truth because only the truth will guarantee our success in future polls”.
Briefing Senator Mark earlier, Chief Dokpesi said he opted for the chairmanship position of the party “because I am eminently qualified, competent and capable of leading the party to Eldorado”.
He promised to bring sanity to the party and ensure justices, fairness and equity in the administration of the party if elected.
