Worried by the emerging disaffection within the Peoples Democratic Party ( PDP) ahead of its 2016 national convention, the Immediate past President of the Senate Senator David Mark has called for a truce between and among faithful forthwith.
"I think we have realized our past mistakes and learnt our lessons. We cannot afford crisis or disaffection within our fold any more", Senator Mark told North central delegates to the PDP zonal congress held in Abuja at the weekend.
"It is time for all genuine men and women of our party to make the necessary sacrifice and work honestly towards a United and more cohesive party", Senator Mark stressed.
In every Human organization , the former Senate President pointed out that there are bound to be disagreements but "we must put aside sentiments , personal interest and reconcile honestly and genuinely for the larger interest."
The PDP he added must avoid the pitfalls of the past such as imposition of candidates against the wishes of the majority saying " we are returning the party to the people and let the people decide."
He told the crowded audience that the inability of the ruling party to find the compass to navigate the ship of the state and ultimately respond appropriately to the yearnings and aspirations of the citizenry has offered the PDP ample opportunity to bounce back to power.
According to him, "Nigerians can now spot the difference. The PDP is still the right choice .Therefore, we must respond positively and ultimately return the nation to the path of glory once more."
Senator Mark craved for credible electoral process that would produce credible and acceptable candidates for elections.
That way, he believes, democracy would thrive and endure for the good of all.
At the North Central Zonal Congress elections conducted by former Minister of state, Education, Mr. Kenneth Gbagi Led panel , Mr. Theophilus Shan was elected Zonal Chairman, Mr. Maurice Tsar as zonal Secretary while Mr. Joel Adagadzu was elected zonal Organizing secretary among others.
