Earlier today, I received the news that Alhaji Bamanga Tukur has officially resigned as chairman after damaging PDP beyond repair. This has vindicated me and other progressives’ that had to leave the party at a point when some of the issues we clamoured for are now coming to light.
?Over the last seven months, we were blackmailed and called names ranging from rebels, dissidents, ingrates and that we were self centered.
Unfortunately, it has become obvious today that PDP under the leadership of Alhaji Bamanga Tukur was a failure and a big tumor that was allowed to become a cancerous one.
PDP as a party was built by the founding fathers on a solid foundation but this has since derailed from the in coming of Bamanga Tukur who came to damage the party beyond repair. After doing the damage, he’s now leaving the party in tartars with no respite at sight.
History will continue to judge all of us as we tried our best to put PDP on the right track before now. For us, we shall continue to defend the injustice done to us and protect the interest of Nigeria, wherever we find ourselves now and in the future.
We strongly believe this country needs change and change must come. ?For me and other progressives’ we shall not relent in our efforts and believes that Nigeria is bigger than any one of us and so, we must nuture it, defend it and protect it.
This is the essence of democracy, the foundation for which most developed countries are known for. Any attempt to undermine it in our father’s land will not be accepted. Nigeria must move forward.
