Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)-led states in the South South yesterday reiterated their resolve to work in unity to ensure the party forms the Federal Government in 2019.
Leaders of the party in the zone and their governors took this stand at a zonal Executive Council meeting at the Brick House in Port Harcourt, the Rivers state capital.
They alleged that the APC government had failed to provide good governance and destabilise the nation’s security infrastructure.
Speaking at the meeting, Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike said: “For us, what we want is free and fair elections for Nigerians to determine the future of the country. Nigerians are tired of the APC.
“Nigerians have seen that the so called social group that calls itself a Political party is a failure. The only political party in the country is PDP. APC took power by deceit, but they cannot govern”.
He urged PDP leaders to remain focused.
National Chairman Uche Secondus said the country had collapsed.
He said: “We must rescue the nation. “Come 2019, Nigeria will be liberated from the hands of the APC. The APC has lost ground in all the six geo-political zones. We have to take one final step to sack the APC government.”
Bayelsa State Governor Seriake Dickson called on the party leaders to support Secondus.
Akwa Ibom Governor, Udom Emmanuel said the South-South formed the foundation for the revival of the country
Senate Minority Leader, Senator Godswill Akpabio assured that the National Assembly would work with other PDP leaders to ensure that the APC is sent packing in 2019.
