Former Imo State governor, Chief Achike Udenwa has advised the seven Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governors and their supporters who formed the breakaway faction of the PDP to reconsider their actions and embrace peace in the party if they are still interested in remaining in the party.
Udenwa, who is also former Minister of Industry noted that if the governors and others insist on remaining in the PDP they may only end up struggling to realise their dreams, advising them to seek alternative platform if they are really interested in going further in their political ambition.
Advising them to pitch their tent with the All Progressive Congress (APC), Udenwa said whatever they can get within the PDP, they can also get in the APC, since the party is positioned for political excellence.
According to Udenwa, “As far as they are concerned, they believe they still have a stake in the PDP and so they want to continue to struggle, but I will advise them to come to the APC, because I know they will find more room in APC than in PDP.”
“In APC, there is room for everyone, there is room to accommodate all forms of ambition, in APC nothing is sacrosanct, they will be accommodated.
Also speaking on what the factional PDP leaders should do to allow peace to reign, former National Vice Chairman, South West, Senator Yinka Omilani advised the governors and their supporters to go look for alternative platform if they are tired of the PDP, rather than causing problems within the party.
According to him, “You cannot be in two places at the same time, if they are tired of being in the PDP it will be better for them to step out there and form their own party or form alliance with an already existing party, so that they can be part of it.”
“It is foolish to set out on a journey without a road map, to me they are beginning to behave like people who embarked on a journey without a road map,” Omilani said.
