The newly inaugurated chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Anambra Stated chapter, Prince Ossy Ezenwa has said that his leadership will extend an olive branch to other warring members of the party for the sake of peace.
The chairman stated to Hallmark newspaper in an exclusive interview that his executives will ensure that the PDP in Anambra return to its winning ways by bringing back all aggrieved members of the party who have left it, or have remained within, yet working against the interest of the party.
He said that the fortunes of the party in the state has greatly dwindled, and this was as a result of members not being coordinated, leading to some working against it, but his leadership will reach out and ensure that those who are aggrieved with genuine reasons were placated and brought back.
“The fortunes of PDP you and I know have dwindled, but what we want to do is to perform the rituals associated with democratic process. We will start by ensuring that anytime there is election, be it internal or external, that we give everybody the same opportunity.
“There are people who have entrenched themselves in the old order, they stay in hotel rooms and write results and all manner of things, but we are saying that we cannot continue like that.
“The other parallel executives you just mentioned have been there for a long time, and if you access PDP you will see that we have lost most of our political offices to other parties, so we need to try new hands. Our executive is coming to bring good candidates that will stand elections.
“In the case of APC, people did not vote the party but the presidential candidate, and that is what we want to do here.” He said.
