Ekwueme reveals what affected PDP’s development


Dr. Alex Ekwueme has said that the thought of
the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) drives him
to tears as the party was planned to be in
power for 60 years.
Vanguard reports that the second republic vice
president spoke in Enugu on Wednesday,
February 15 when the Prof. Jerry Gana-led
Strategy Review and Interparty Relations
Committee of the PDP presented its report to
him.
Ekwueme reveals what affected PDP’s
development
Ekwueme who was one of the founding
members of the party said when the PDP was
formed, it was of the aim of being in power for
60 years but some persons joined the party and
changed its focus.
He said during the administration of late
president, Umaru Musa Yar’Adua, he was called
to spearhead the process of rebuilding the
party and that attempt was made but his
passing away stalled the process as his
successor, Goodluck Jonathan, did not carry on
with it.
He said: : “The story of PDP makes me
sometimes to weep. When our founding fathers
said the party will be in charge for 60 years or
more, some thought they were just bragging,
PDP was packaged to be a mass movement of all
Nigerians just like the ANC of south africa.
“We started that way, the first election in 1998,
December 5, we won massively across the
country, we took control of 28 out of 36 states, In
1999, we ended up with 21 of the 36 governors,
south east, and south-south were all PDP, 10 of
the 19 governors of the north were PDP, it was a
strong showing.
“We also had control of the National Assembly,
with that showing all we needed to do was to
manage the party properly as envisaged by the
founding fathers, making it a mass movement
and expanding its power base
“Unfortunately, some people who did not know
how the party was formed or what informed its
philosophy, got involved in the party and
decided to convert it to a personal estate
without regard to the underpinning principles
that formed its formation and gradually we
started to lose ground.
At one stage, in my state, they decided to
commence the re-registration of members so as
to exclude members who they thought were not
in their camp, instead of attracting more
members, they decided to exclude. That was the
genesis of our present situation, coupled with
lack of internal democracy.
“I can’t remember how many times I’ve been
called to come and spearhead the process of
bringing back people to our party, that was
what late Yaradua invited me to do as soon as
he took over as president. We went round all the
6 zones, met with aggrieved members but
unfortunately Yaradua passed on and that
initiative was not conclusively implemented.”
