PDP Convention: David Mark cautions against indiscipline

By Titilope Fadare

OrderPaperToday- Former President of the Senate, David Mark has urged all members of the Peoples’  Democratic Party (PDP), to maintain discipline and decorum ahead of the forthcoming non-elective national convention of the party.

Mark made this call on Thursday in a good will message released by his media adviser, Paul Mummeh.

He noted that members who decamped to the ruling party, All Progressives Congress (APC) are “fair-weather friends”.

He further expressed his solidarity for the party even after its defeat of the 2015 presidential election.

The statement said: “I am impressed with the renewed enthusiasm and commitment of our members towards rebuilding the party after the protracted leadership  tussle “.

“Even if I will be the last man standing in the PDP, I will remain in PDP. I have no reasons whatsoever to leave the party. I have risen to where I am as a Senate President on the platform of  the party. The PDP has a manifesto and I believe in it. Those who are decamping from PDP to APC  are fair weather friends of the party.

“So, the point I want to make is that I remain in PDP and I will work hard with other faithful members to bring it back. This is democracy, there will  always be a winner and  a loser in every election. Both parties must accept the outcome in a free and fair contest and move on.”.

Senator Mark further demanded that Governor Ifeanyi Okowa led special convention committee not  to leave any stone unturned to guarantee a hitch-free exercise .

“We have come this far through  a tortuous journey. We cannot afford to make another mistake that could affect the fortunes of the party in the days ahead,” he appealed.
