Confab report implementation will foster equity, says PDP
RULING Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has commended President Goodluck Jonathan and the Federal Executive Council (FEC) for approving the final report of the 2014 national conference report, saying its implementation would strengthen the unity, stability of the nation, plug waste in the system and ensure equity in the polity in line with the PDP manifesto.
PDP National Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh in a statement on yesterday said, “the development shows that the President and the PDP government are sensitive to the yearnings and aspirations of the Nigerian people as encapsulated in the report.”
“This move which has been positively received by Nigerians is in with President Jonathan’s avowed commitment to strengthen the unity and stability of the nation, plug waste in the system and ensure equity in the polity in line with the PDP manifesto and visions of our founding fathers.
“We strongly believe that the implementation of this report that covers the views of all segments of the populace is also expected to help in addressing some socio-political challenges in the land, guarantee harmonious living among the people and boost economic growth across the country,”the party said.
It also noted that the approval, coming shortly after the reduction in electricity tariff and cut in the price of petrol clearly President Jonathan’s commitment to the wellbeing of the people and development of the nation.
The PDP therefore charged Nigerians to remain steadfast in their support for the President and demonstrate this by turning out en masse and massively vote for him and other PDP candidates in the March 28 and April 11 elections.
Meanwhile, Rivers State Chairman of the PDP, Mr. Felix Obuah has expressed shock over the state Police Commissioner’s allegation that Governor Chibuike Amaechi wanted him to release detained criminals In a statement signed by his Special Adviser on Media, Jerry Needam, the State PDP chairman said, “To us, Governor Amaechi is not only a sponsor of this crime syndicate but also an accomplice, perhaps, using the billions of Naira security vote for his office which he has failed to appropriately and judiciously use to sustain these acts of lawlessness.”
“It’s also common sense that all the noise and accusations against the State Police Command of arresting 400 APC supporters and still plotting to arrest over 300 more of APC leaders are only aimed at stampeding the police to release these suspects.
