Report gathered that senate President David Mark on Wednesday raised the alarm that the Peoples Democratic Party might be heading for a final destruction if the infighting among its leaders was not immediately resolved.
Mark, while receiving the Senator Ike Ekweremadu PDP Post – Election Review Committee, in Abuja, said the acrimony between top members of the party was dangerous.
He said, “The PDP is already haemorrhaging, unless we halt the bleeding and find the necessary therapy, we may be heading for the final burial of the party. “The party is already in a comatose status and we should do all we can to resuscitate the party rather than this unnecessary rancour and buck passing.
“The emerging factions are absolutely unnecessary. The combatants must sheathe their swords and embrace dialogue. “My appeal is that we should not do anything further that would damage the already fragmented house. “Everybody should come together and rebuild the party. We have got enough bruises. We need not inflict further pains on ourselves with continuous bickering. Enough of this blame-game.
” Mark urged all the PDP members to return to the drawing board instead of washing their dirty linen in the public. He said, “I believe a useful lesson has been learnt from the PDP electoral misfortune. As for me, it is time for us to put on our thinking caps and chart a new course.”
The outgoing Senate President expressed confidence that Ekweremadu and his team would do a good job and address the remote and immediate causes of “our misfortune and make recommendations that will enhance the future of our party.” “I have worked closely with the Deputy President of the Senate over the years and I know his capability and capacity to handle issues,” he added.
