TWO-TIME time governor of old Midwest and Bendel states, Dr Samuel Ogbemudia, yesterday denied rumours that he planned to dump the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) where he is a member of the Board of Trustees (BoT).

He, however, said the party failed in the last general elections because of its inability to take stock and heed genuine advice from some faithful and elders.

Enthusing that PDP would regain its lost glory, Ogbemudia assured that he was available to provide whatever support needed to ensure the party achieved that.

“The party’s initial mistake was made when the party refused to take full assessment of its victory. Therefore, we mismanage the victory. It is the outcome we are all suffering now.”

“I will do all that is necessary to enable the party get back to its winning way.

“I will only cease being a member of the PDP when I can no longer breathe. While I am alive, I will continue to support a PDP that is well led by a remarkable Nigerian who understands the act of service.

“This card, I will treasure it, I will continue to believe that it is the only passport to a destination that is yet to be carved out.

“In the past few months, I decided to maintain a low profile and not to be involved with what the party was doing because; the party did not pay intention to very important survival advice given to them at different times and at different forum.

“I thought that I would have nothing to do with them until you came in, if you have not come yourself, I would not have listened to anybody.

“I am glad to be registered to show that I am a PDP man. I will continue to be one but it does not mean that when I see the truth I will not say it.

“If telling the truth is termed to be anti-party activity, then I have to be excused because I cannot tell lies in order to survive party discipline.

“I want to assure you that I am here and ready to offer any advice that will help the PDP regain its lost glory,” Ogbemudia said.

He urged members to embrace the biometric for a robust a database.

Earlier, chairman of the PDP Mobilisation and Biometrics Committee, Chief Raymond Dokpesi, said the time had come when all hands must be on deck to correct some anomalies in the conduct of the party’s affairs.

“This is time to sit back and have a very sober reflection. It is a time that we have to call back on you the founding fathers of the party to assist in providing the fatherly advice to the party to get out of this abyss we are into,” Dokpesi urged.
