The People’s Democratic Party PDP edo state has distance itself from a statement credited to one of it leaders in the State.
This position was contained in a press briefing sent to prison news by the state publicity secretary, Chris Nehikhare, CIA electronic mail on Sunday, 20th January, 2020.
The statement reads in full
Senator Daisy Ehanire-Danjuma is on her Own!
Our attention has been drawn to a statement purportedly made by Senator Daisy Ehanire-Danjuma, a member of our great party PDP and Board of Trustees (BOT) when she attended a town hall meeting hosted by Governor Obaseki in Lagos over the weekend.
The comments, discussions and purported endorsements credited to her are her private thoughts and do not reflect the thoughts of Edo PDP.
Edo PDP hereby disassociates itself from all that transpired between Senator Daisy Ehanire-Danjuma and the Governor. It is abnormal and not politically savvy for party leaders to endorse aspirants of another party other than the candidate of their party.
Being a member of the BOT confers some rights and privileges. It’s an abuse of such rights and privileges to openly and publicly endorse a candidate of another party. This action calls for your resignation from such exalted position!
The statement of endorsement is a morale-damper to the hard working, committed and loyal men, women and youths of Edo PDP.
At the appropriate time in accordance with our party’s constitution, a credible PDP candidate will be nominated to contest the Edo State 2020 Governorship election to liberate the state from political arrogance, political rascality, poverty, insecurity, unemployment and unimaginable colossal debts.
In the last three and half years, this government has been on a merry-go-round. The “commissioned” 5 star specialist hospital is still home to reptiles, Tayo Akpata University of Education, an unfulfilled political greek gift, College of Agriculture Ogierieki, a victim of policy lip-service, the gele gele sea port project is still a mirage and the industrial park is still at the MOU level. The internal quibbling in APC has traumatized Edo people and the Governor you are endorsing have left 14 constituencies unrepresented in the state house of assembly. To mention a few!
To all Edo people, members and supporters of PDP you will have a choice to make between the umbrella of comfort and the broom of hardship. A PDP government will liberate our state from the APC government that is insensitive to the plight of our people. The echoes of freedom is in the streets and PDP remains the preferred choice of our people.
PDP…making Edo people matter!
