The commitment and zeal with which the new PDP Chairman, Alhaji Adamu Mu’azu is handling the affairs of the party shows he has the mindset and ability to reunite and position the party for victory in the 2015 elections.
This declaration was made on Friday in Calabar by a former member of the House of Representatives, Hon Jones Tangban while baring his mind to newsmen on the crisis and spate of defections rocking the party at the wake of fast approaching 2015 general elections.
“From the efforts and pronouncements so far made by the new chairman especially his open door policy of allowing old members to return without restriction is laudable and I believe the party would become stronger at the end of the day and win the 2015 elections convincingly”.
Hon Tangban who is the chairman of a Calabar based political group, Victory Chapter Four, said the current crisis has awakened the fighting spirit and need for members to close ranks and work towards ensuring the victory of the party in 2015. “We have always had crisis, though not at this magnitude, but I can assure you that members are now more conscious of their role as party members that whatever may be our differences, we have to work together for the sake of our party and democracy”.
He said his group also supports the need for Senator Victor Ndoma Egba to return to the Senate in 2015 to, as he puts it “Put Cross River State more strongly on the map by bringing his experience to bear in addressing the needs not just of the people of the Central Senatorial District but the entire state.”
According to the former lawmaker, Victory Chapter Four is made of eminent political figures from across the state that are determined to work for the victory of PDP in all elections in 2015. “We have people like Mr. Victor Abang who is the secretary of the group, Chief Ernest Irek and several others who have endorsed the need for Senator Victor Ndoma Egba to return to the Senate for the interest of good and effective representation at that level”.
The group, Hon Tangan said commends the efforts of Cross River State governor, Senator Liyel Imoke towards developing the state through the provision of infrastructure in rural areas like roads, electricity and water.
“Recently he signed an agreement to extend the water supply to rural communities in Ikom and to a large extent the lives of the people of these areas would improve significantly”.
