Governor Ahmadu Fintiri of Adamawa, has called on the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) members to ensure that people of high integrity are allowed to pilot affairs of the party so that it can win the presidency in 2023.
The governor made the call on Thursday, while addressing party supporters in Abuja at the launch of the logo and promotional materials for the party’s national convention scheduled for October 30.
Fintiri said: “We all know what is happening as heavily expressed by our national publicity secretary himself — how deep we are in trouble as a nation,”
“We are at crossroads and we have to do the needful, beginning from this convention to ensure that we get our best to steer us with their skills, with their experience and their integrity so that Nigerians can start to believe in us.
“We have to right all the mistakes that we have committed in the past. Our leaders have agreed that we have made a mistake and have apologised to Nigerians.
“And with this, I think we also need to bring people of high integrity to manage the affairs of the party and to get us to win the 2023 general election, particularly the presidency.
“I assure you, like the chairman of today’s occasion said, despite the challenges associated with this convention, we have not asked for an extension of time. This did not come without too much pain. We have sacrificed a lot of time; we have sacrificed a lot of energy to put things to work. We expect that all our members across the country should also make a lot of sacrifices and put time into this convention because it is very key for the survival of our party.”
