The Deputy President of the Senate, Ike Ekweremadu, has congratulated and tasked the Prince Uche Secondus-led National Working Committee (NWC) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to get down to work immediately as there is no honeymoon.
Ekweremadu also commended the PDP faithful for a credible and hitch-free national convention, noting that the party had lived up to its name.
In a congratulatory message to the newly elected PDP NWC, he said: “I congratulate Prince Uche Secondus-led NWC on their election in a free, fair, credible, transparent, and indeed democratic. The PDP has set an example, which other political parties will have to emulate to deepen the nation’s democracy.
“Importantly, I believe that 2019 is a comeback year for the PDP because distraught Nigerians look up to our great party. However, there is a lot of work to be done and party faithful expect members of the new NWC to hit the ground running because they have no luxury of a honeymoon.
“We expect them to start the process of galvanising party faithful to reposition the PDP and mobilise Nigerians towards building a Nigeria of our dreams”.
Ekweremadu urged party members and Nigerians to support the PDP NWC to deliver on its mandate.
