Daniel Warns Against Disunity

Peoples Democratic  Party (PDP) national chairmanship aspirant Otunba Gbenga Daniel has urged chieftains to eschew politics of bitterness and acrimonious campaign.

The former governor of Ogun State said the party can only survive, if there is unity.

In a statement by Steve Oliyide, his media aide, Daniel admonished aspirants and other party leaders to avoid media war and any campaign of calmuny.

He said: “We have watched with grave concern the unpleasant throwing of brickbats in the media from different camps in the build up to the December 9 National Convention of our great Party.

“Only one candidate will eventually emerge as the national chairman. There will always be a day after December 9 and all of us will still have to sit down to work together to chart a new course for our country and the Democratic process”.

Daniel added: “Our great party will suffer the greatest damage and public opprobrium from the mudsling and personality attacks on each of the aspirants. To the public, we are all members of the Peoples Democratic Party and any dirt thrown either way will surely have negative effects on the Party and our performance in the 2019 general elections.”

The former governor lamented that some members were washing the dirty linen of the party in the public, unmindful of its consequences.

He said it is not profitable for the party to allow some members to malign the personalities of the aspirants because they have aspired to lead.

He described the aspirants as men of impeccable characters, adding that they are eminently qualified to lead the party to victory in future elections.

He said the winners at the convention will still need the rely on the support of those who may not win to pilot the affairs of the party in post-convention period.

Daniel added: “There is no system that is perfect anywhere in the world. Only that which is best administered can be considered to be good enough.

“We are not unmindful of the misgivings of some of our party members with respect to the composition of the list of Convention Committee members, but we feel strongly that calling for the resignation of the Chairman of the National Caretaker Committee, Senator Ahmed Maikarfi, will and can not be the solution.

“PDP is a troubled party, no doubt, and it is the collective search for solution that has got us to where we are at the moment. It is the same reason why many of us are aspiring to lead it with a strong resolve and believe that we can steer its ship back to sail”.

“It will not be in the overall best interest of our party if, while pursuing our ambition and prosecuting our campaigns, seeking delegates’ votes and support, and we unknowingly unmarket our great party which we seek and aspire to also lead.”
