THE People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has said that Nigeria presently is in need of God’s intervention for things to improve as it continues to drift without direction.
PDP National Chairman, Prince Uche Secondus made the claim on Saturday in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State during the commissioning of the 1,000 capacity of the state party secretariat.
In his goodwill message, Secondus stated that Nigeria has need for truthful, honest and trusted leaders, noting that, “what we must emphasize today is to build institutions. What we must do in this country is to groom young people that will become leaders to take over the leadership of the country.”
He stated: “Our country today need leaders who will be truthful, honest and trusted. The PDP has shown clearly that we have the best governors because of the role call of achievements and the country can confirm what they have seen.”
Secondus lauded the Akwa Ibom Governor, Udom Emmanuel as a trusted leader, and noted, “without good leadership, you cannot have this secretariat. Our county needs a lot of prayers. A country with no direction, without a captain, we need a lot of prayers. You all know what we are going through. We need God’s intervention.”
“When you show leadership by example and your followers show faith in their leaders, that means the leader has done well.
“You are a leader that has shown leadership and your followers are following you with curiosity, and they have seen the works you have shown in Akwa Ibom.
“Our country needs a lot of prayers. A country without a captain, we need a lot of prayers. You all know what we are going through. We need God’s intervention.”
The National chairman said that PDP had recovered and was becoming stronger everyday.
The state governor challenged the national party, saying, “we look forward to the national to deliver Nigeria back to PDP.”
He noted that it would have been unfair if the PDP did not have the secretariat in the state since it has been the only party that has moved the state forward.
“PDP can only get stronger. It would have been unfair if PDP did not put up something like this in Akwa Ibom because this is the only party that has propelled the state.”
