A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Kaduna State, Ashafa Waziri, has hailed the conduct of the party’s national convention.
He described it as evidence that PDP has the capacity to rescue the country from ruins.
Waziri, who reiterated that the emergence of former Senate President, Iyorchia Ayu, as national chairman was the “best decision ever,” noted that he (Ayu) has the character and pedigree needed to lead the party to electoral victories.
He said: “With the conduct of the national convention and emergence of the Senator Ayu-led National Working Committee that will pilot the affairs of the party from December, PDP has again demonstrated to Nigerians that it is more organised than the APC.
“PDP lost power in 2015 and despite all odds, it has been able to manage its affairs. Can the same be said of the ruling APC?
“When will APC even hold its own national convention and have properly constituted National Working Committee like the PDP?
“Can a party that is incapable of running its own affairs in accordance with its constitution govern a country successfully? Obviously, the answer is no”
Ashafa Waziri, who was a chairmanship aspirant during the PDP Congress in Kaduna State last year, said the emergence of Ayu, a member of the G-34, which later became PDP, was a clear indication that the party has been returned to its founding fathers.
He said; “At this critical time, there is no better option for Nigeria than to go back to its roots to find solution to its problems and PDP has shown the way by constituting a new NWC that is a mixture of the beginning and the present.”
