Despite current crises threatening its existence, the leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Monday said that the party was capable of handling all the challenges facing it.
Appreciating the role played by President Goodluck Jonathan and leaders of the party in resolving the leadership challenges, the party decision makers said that PDP had once more indicated that the party is ever capable of solving its problems.
In a statement by its Ag. National Publicity Secretary, Barr. Tony Caesar Okeke, the PDP said, “the maturity and sincerity with which the President and other leaders of the party handled the leadership challenges facing the PDP has once more indicated that the party is ever capable of solving its problems contrary to the doomsday prophecies of the opposition.
“We have said repeatedly that many voices but one resolution in the aftermath of wide consultation is the hallmark of democracy. In PDP, we disagree, we hold individual opinion but we agree and resolve our differences and the party as well as the polity better for it.
“The founding fathers of our great party have built the PDP as a melting pot. They enthroned the PDP as a platform where all Nigerians irrespective of creed, race or political persuasion would find expression. Thus, we have remained the strongest centripetal pull on the
unity of the nation and so shall it continue.”
