Full statement reads:
I do not often speak publicly about the internal affairs of the PDP because I have always chosen to remain well above the fray.
This is because I have good friends in every single group and on all sides that constitute the party. However, given today’s (yesterday’s) events, there appears to be deep cause for concern.
It is clear to me that, more than at any other time in its almost 17 years in existence, the PDP needs serious prayers. If we fail to provide the strong, united, progressive, credible and focused leadership and opposition that is needed to keep our country on course and our government on their toes, then God will never forgive us and He will surely punish us.
If we insist on making the wrong choices about our leadership and if we keep taking people for granted not only will we be finished as a party but the entire country will suffer the consequences of our errors and inexplicable ways.
May God help us and may He forgive us and deliver us from evil, greedy, corrupt, ignorant and bloodthirsty men.
The presidential spokesperson during the 2015 PDP campaign said this in reaction to the appointment of former Borno State governor, Ali Modu Sheriff as the new Chairman for the Peoples Democratic Party.
