The Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP) yesterday set up a new 19-man Caretaker Executive Committee to pilot the affairs of the party in Anambra State.
Inaugurating the Caretaker Committee in Enugu, the PDP National Vice-Chairman, South East, Chief Austin Umahi, called on party faithful to increase sensitisation and mobilisation by involving more women and youths in the affairs of the party.
According to him, the time for action has come with no space for wasting time.
Umahi said: “You have all the rights to deal with every issue that has to do with the party in the state, starting from now.
“We are not afraid to apologise to Nigerians where we have done wrong, we have realised our mistakes. That is why we have accepted to rebrand the party and reposition ourselves in other to regain power in 2019.”
The South East National Vice Chairman urged their teeming supporters in Nigeria, especially in Anambra State, “not to lose hope, but rather pray and work hard for PDP to regain power from the current ruling despotic cabal, and return it to the people.”
In his acceptance speech, the chairman of the Caretaker Committee, Chief Ndubuisi Nwobu, said they were not oblivious of the crises that have cracked the party in the state.
He expressed his determination to reconcile all interests and persons, in other to move the party forward.
He said: “The Committee would do all within their powers to reconcile all aggrieved persons within the party, in other to restore the massive support and overwhelming confidence the people of Anambra once had in the party.”
Speaking on behalf of other members of the Committee, a former state secretary of the ruling APGA in the state, Mr. John Okoli-Akirika, stressed that with the maturity exhibited by the current leadership of the party, led by the National Chairman, Prince Uche secondus, the party is set for victory in the 2019 general elections.
On his part, a party stalwart, who was a former member of the State legislature, Mr Valentine Ayika, expressed satisfaction over the inauguration of the new party executive, after a protracted leadership crisis.
While asking the new party executives to endeavour to reach out to all stakeholders, he stressed that PDP has decided to forge a common front, to go into the 2019 elections as one united family.
