Former Imo State Governor, Emeka Ihedioha, has advised people who left the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to return back to the party.
Speaking to newsmen at the Nwankwo Kanu Sports Centre, venue of the party’s State Congress, Emeka Ihedioha said the PDP remains the only political party in Imo state.
According to the former Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, the party will win subsequent elections in the State.
“PDP will remain the party of the people in the State. We will win the next elections again and God will be on our side”, he said.
While urging those who left the party to retrace their steps, he said the people of Imo State were demoralized over the exit of the party from the seat of governance.
Ihedioha said: “I m just a member of the PDP and I expect everyone to identify his or her mistakes, retrace their steps, because truly the PDP is the only political party we have true and genuine democracy.
“In other political parties, it’s either a one-man business or more. Ihedioha expressed satisfaction with the level of preparedness of the Congress, assuring of a democratic and transparent process that will lead to the emergence of new leadership for the party. He charged incoming State Executive members of the party to stay focused, reminding them of the onerous task ahead to lead the party to subsequent electoral victories.
“When they emerge, I will advise them to be refocused and realize that Imo is a PDP State. They should know that our party is truly a People’s Democratic Party, and we shall always continue to lead by example”.
