The Deputy National Financial Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) who is of Imo State origin, Chief Henry Ekpe has congratulated the party in Imo State for the smooth LGA Congresses and peaceful inauguration of the party executives in the twenty seven (27) LGAs in the State.
Speaking in Owerri recently, Ekpe advised all the newly inaugurated officers to live above board as the role models of PDP in their various LGAs. He said they must work according to the constitution of PDP and are now the eyes of the party in their LGAs.
The National officer counseled them to remain vigilant against any acts that may be inimical to the progress of PDP, cautioning them to resist any attempt to lure them with carrots, pointing out that they must be ready to make sacrifices, so as to justify their position as the party in opposition.
He urged the LGA officers to throw behind the debacle of January 14, 2020 which sent PDP out of Government House Owerri, adding that now is the time to remain focused and rebuild Imo PDP because the future looks brighter for the party.
“PDP remains a strong force not only in Imo State but in the entire Nigeria. Your job now is to be the PDP Torch bears in your LGAs and make sure our members remain intact”, the Deputy National Financial Secretary said.
He appealed to those who could not secure one position or the other now to support others as tomorrow will be their own turn.
“All of us cannot be officers at same time. I appeal to those who could not make it to sheath their swords and join hands in building Imo PDP because tomorrow is another day”, Ekpe said.
