Save PDP from looming disaster or I’ll lead others to party’s funeral – Chidoka tells Govs, NEC, others

A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Osita Chidoka has raised the alarm over what he described as impending disaster capable of sinking the ship of the party.

He warned the party leadership to uphold the constitutionality and respect for the rules of the party at Thursday’s NEC meeting in Abuja.

In a statement he signed, former Aviation Minister threatened to lead the pallbearers to the funeral of the party if the leadership failed to heed to his advice.

The statement reads, “To the Governors, National Assembly Caucus, and National Executive Committee of the Peoples Democratic Party,

“I address you today with a sense of urgency. As you gather in Abuja tomorrow for the NEC meeting, I want to warn the party of an impending disaster that could sink the ship of the party.

“Let me be clear: if at the NEC meeting tomorrow, the Party fails to uphold the constitutionality and respect for the rules of the party, then I and other progressive members will not hesitate to lead the pallbearers to the funeral of the party as we know it. 

“The party must put an end to its submission to filthy lucre and macabre dancing to the music of unprincipled pipers. It must return to the role of providing good governance to its states and principled opposition that Nigerians can trust. 

“If tomorrow, the party’s ship is not steered away from the gigantic iceberg prominent on its path, the consequences will be dire.

“It is a matter of grave urgency to save the soul of the party that ushered and stabilised democracy in Nigeria. 

“The NEC must Act now.”
