– Former president Goodluck Jonathan has been named as the only solution to the PDP’s current crisis by lawmaker Victor Akande
– Akande, a chieftain of the party in Lagos, said the PDP needs the leadership of Jonathan to move it out of its crisis
Victor Akande, a Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) lawmaker in the Lagos State House of Assembly has pleaded with former president Goodluck Jonathan to return fully to the party to help solve its current crisis.
News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Akande believes strongly that only Jonathan’s return to the party can give it full direction.
Akande believes that Jonathan will have to take active part in PDP activities for the party to be saved
NAN quoted Akande as saying on Sunday, December 11 that the absence of Jonathan from active politics is affecting the party.
It is a pity my party, PDP has not got its house together and it has not really harmonised all problems in order to forge ahead.
Things have fallen apart, the centre cannot hold.
There is only one solution to our problems and the solution is that, former president Goodluck Jonathan should come out of his cocoon and put the party aright.
If Jonathan has come forth to lead the party in the right perspective, and take over the mantle of leadership, our story would have been different by now.
Anywhere there is no leadership, anarchy and struggle for leadership, as it is bedevilling the party, will be the situation.
I challenge President Jonathan to come forward and give the direction. Everybody will fall in line. “Having risen to the peak on the platform of the party, he has the responsibility to nurture the party and prevent it from dying.
There are some cabals who are hell bent on killing the party, only Jonathan can make the party survive.
If we don’t want people to decamp again from the party, there must be somebody to give a sense of direction. A commander cannot sit back and be commanding.
Someone who has benefited from the party cannot allow that party to die. He must come forward, I am challenging him.
Meanwhile, fresh indications have emerged that a new party reportedly being formed by the Ahmed Makarfi faction of the PDP may be registered soon.
The proposed name for the new mega party has also been reported in some circles.
