PDP Crisis: Rep urges party members to drop sentiments for solution

Reps decry rising electricity tariff

A member of the House of Representatives, Mr Johnson Agbonayinma (Edo-PDP), said the crisis rocking the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) could be resolved if members dropped sentiments.

Agbonayinma said this in an interview with Newsverge on Friday in Abuja.

He said that was no problem without solution and the ability to look beyond issues without being passionate would go a long way in bringing peace back to the party.

“So, I align with Gov. Seriake Dickson’s recommendations on ways to restore peace to the party.

“I must appreciate him and I believe his efforts will never be in vain.

“I think Dickson’s report and recommendation is the only way forward and that is what Sen. Ali Modu Sheriff, Chairman of PDP, has been saying.

“We must stop the impunity in our party; we must give the party back to the people. When you say, `PDP, power to the people’, we must exhibit that; we must show to the world that we really care for the people.

“It is not about being selfish but about selflessness. Sen. Ali Modu Sheriff is not on trial, those that are on trial are those trying to blackmail him, castigate him and paint him black,’’ he said.

The lawmaker said that some people did not mean well for the party and therefore called on all members to ensure that the party bounced back.

“Some people who don’t mean well for our party are being used by some external forces to cause crisis for PDP because they are financially buoyant.

“I tell you the truth, Nigerians are wiser than what they think and they are watching too,” he said.

Agbonayinma called on willing members of the party to join hands and ensure that the peace was restored to the party.

“Those PDP members who have the will and commitment to make sure that PDP bounces back should do so now and bring the party back from its lost glory.

“This will also bring us together as one family,” he said.
