“We need brave and courageous men who will do the needful without undue interference from the state high and mighty at this time, thereby compromising the major ingredient of a solid party leadership”, the statement reads.


“We urge the NWC of our party to ignore calls, insinuations purportedly made to them in other avoid compromise against the interest of the party as the time to get all the energy needed in PDP -Nigeria is now using Kogi as a litmus test.


“To this end we call on the incumbent Governor H.E, Idris I. Wada, and other known aspirant like Comrade Mohammed Ali (CMA), Alhjaji Jubril Isah –Echocho and other would be aspirants to kindly allow for due process at the party, as we will all benefit if we succeed in keeping our state PDP with the kind of leadership a truly democratic process will throw up at the end of his important overhauling. We have no doubt in our minds that we have the best quality of men in our party and we must not watch power drift away in line with our individual greed to the same power.
