PDP caretaker committee to get 4 months extension

Former President Goodluck Jonathan

There have been calls on the national leadership of the party to expel some members believed to be causing more trouble.

Speaking with the Tribune Online at the Convention Venue, the National Publicity of the Party's National Caretaker Committee, NCC, Prince Dayo Adeyeye said that it showed that Nigerians still loved the Party.

Okowa, who is the Chairman of the PDP Convention Committee, said the last two years presented great challenges to the party.

The None-Elective Convention of the party, which narrowly survived being stopped by the court, was said to have been mandated to discuss the possibility of suspending the erring members.

Mr Jonathan's comments came at the PDP's non-elective national convention today in Abuja, one month after the Supreme Court resolves the prolonged leadership tussle in the party.

"We are rebounding back, realising that there is a champion in each of us in the party".

I begin this short address by thanking the National Caretaker Committee for the confidence reposed in us to serve as Chairman/Members of the Planning Committee for this Special Convention.

We didn't do well to stop corruption – Goodluck Jonathan finally admits

"The elections we conducted, especially from 2011 to 2015 general elections and other elections - senatorial and governorship elections - were accepted globally that they met global standards because PDP is a party that wants to place Nigeria globally to compete favourably with other countries". PDP is the only party that can take Nigeria to greatness.

He urged Nigerians to support the party, adding that it would not disappoint the country.

"We may not have done very well but even in the fight against corruption, we came up with innovations because of our strong policies topmost among them being the treasury single account (TSA)".

According to him, in 2012, PDP ensured that prices of food remained stable in spite of flood which affected 50 per cent of farmlands along the flood plains of river Niger and Benue.

On this day, we need to reaffirm our commitment to the democratic ideals of internal party democracy, sovereignty of the people, majority rule and minority rights, the rule of law and good governance, respect for civil and political rights, and inclusive participation of all in party administration.

"Corruption is not a Nigerian invention but we must distinguish between fighting corruption and fighting political opponents", he said. Okowa stated this yesterday while inspecting the Eagles Square, venue for the convention, assuring party members that every necessary arrangements have been taken care of. We are who we think we are, so we must think the best for ourselves.

"Nigerians have now experienced another party at the federal government".
