PDP Rules Out Special Treatment For New Members
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has uled out special treatment for new members.
The party's National Caretaker Committee Chairman, Senator Ahmed Makarfi, who dropped the hint in Abuja during a courtesy call on him by stalwarts, made it clear that loyalty would, however, be rewarded.
He assured party members of fairness, transparency and equity.
His words: “We are open to reconciling with everybody. We are open to accepting new entrants but no privileges for anybody coming into the party. That is not an issue to be contemplated. No exclusivity. It will be inclusive without any special treatment.”
Makarfi said the party is guarding against the mistake of the ruling APC, adding: “That is how the All Progressives Congress (APC) got it wrong. We should learn from that. What we need to do is to create a level-playing field.”
Makarfi, however, noted that Nigeria remains the only African nation where what he called ‘nomadic’ politicians exist.
The PDP rescue group commended the caretaker committee for being committed to the spirit of ‘no victor, no vanquished’ and asked Senator Ali Modu Sheriff and his supporters to reciprocate the gesture.
