The southwest leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to ensure discipline, fair play, respect for order and equity in the affairs of the country.
The PDP said Nigeria's democracy must not continue along what it described as the “flawed, demeaning path”.
Reacting to the conduct of the Ekiti and Osun states' governorship elections the party stated its position yesterday at a stakeholders’ meeting of Southwest leaders of the party in Ibadan, the state capital.
The meeting was chaired by Chief Olabode George and attended by the deputy national chairman, Elder Yemi Akinwonmi; the zone’s chairman, Eddy Olafeso; Oyo state governorship candidate, Seyi Makinde; Ekiti State Deputy Governor Prof Olusola Eleka and delegates from Southwest states.
Meanwhile, NAIJ.com previously reported that Edwin Clark, the south-south leader, slammed governors and former governors of the PDP and All Progressives Congress (APC), accusing them of using their powers and states' resources to influence the decisions of their parties.
The south-south leader, in a letter urged Adams Oshiomhole, the national chairman of APC, to make sure that the ex-governor, Emmanuel Uduaghan, was not imposed on the people as APC’s senatorial candidate in Delta south senatorial district, Delta state.
He said he observed with disgust and disappointment the continuous role of governors and former governors both of APC and PDP who use their influences and state resources to undermine their parties.
