Senator Samuel Anyanwu charges Ikeduru PDP leaders to be loyal to party
Senator Samuel Nnaemeka Anyanwu has charged leaders of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ikeduru LGA to remain loyal to the party, describing it as the only way the party could secure victory in future elections.
Anyanwu gave this admonition Thursday while addressing Ikeduru PDP stakeholders in Owerri, the capital of Imo State.
According to him, “the only party we can call our own is PDP, and there is need for leaders to show example by remaining loyal to the party. The era of internal crisis is over, every genuine member should rise and contribute for the development of the party not only in Ikeduru LGA and Owerri zone in particular, but Imo State in general”
Senator Anyanwu further appealed to those still keeping malice or acrimony against the party and its leadership to sheathe their sword, maintaining that until everyone came together in unity, APC government would continue to use PDP for a ride.
He assured of his readiness to transform the party to an enviable height, and warned those still fanning the embers of discord capable of reducing the party’s popularity and acceptance in the state to repent.
“We should understand one thing that a divided house cannot stand. We are all aware that the crisis that almost consumed our party has been resolved. Today, we have a PDP that belongs to everyone. Every issue of camp that nearly destroyed the party in the state has ended. All of us are today, under one big umbrella. I have forgiven those that betrayed me, and on that note, I beg everyone here to forgive me as well”
“Today, what we should be happy for and celebrate is that we have one formidable and revived PDP and nothing more. My dear brothers, sisters and party faithful, the only thing that can give our party victory is peace and unity. I don’t have any grudge whatsoever against anyone; I want to assure you that I am willing and ever ready to embrace all of us. Like you all know , I have never shied away from contributing my quota for the success of this party.”
“We must bear in mind that a divided house cannot make any progress. Let us come together and build this party that has afforded us the privilege to thrive. What is expected of us now is sincerity, dedication and commitment.” He stated.
Senator Anyanwu therefore commended leaders and members of PDP in Ikeduru LGA for their resilience and commitment to the party throughout the period the minor wrangling lasted, urging them to continue to sustain the tempo now that PDP has bounced back.
While charging them to sensitize the public on the need to join PDP, also urged them to remain their brother’s keeper.
Meanwhile, the Ikeduru PDP leaders have applauded Senator Anyanwu on his avowed stand against bad governance in the country, describing him as a lone voice that has steadily championed the cause of PDP beyond the shores of Imo State.
