Adamawa Governor, Ahmadu Fintiri has said the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has done better in the management of its internal crisis than the All Progressives Congress.
Speaking on Saturday on his return to Yola from the National Executive Committee meeting of the PDP in Abuja, where was sworn in as the Chairman of the PDP Convention Committee, the said Nigerians expected the PDP to field an intelligent and vibrant presidential candidate come 2023.
Finitri who said his party would get its convention rights said the PDP has proven itself to be successful in dealing with crisis because of the ingenuity of the people in the party, having had experience in the past.
“It is the only party that has the institutional capacity that is functioning and working. The National Working Committee is working; the Board of Trustees is working; the PDP Governors’ Forum is working; former governors, former ministers, and elders of the party are giving their own advice, sharing and bringing their own experiences also on board. Collectively, we are succeeding because of this internal crisis management mechanism, which is functional and working,” he said.
In a reference to the removal of Uche Secondus as the PDP National Chairman, Fintiri said, “No victor and no vanguished.
“From the way we have always been settling our crisis there has never been a winner. It has always been no victor, no vanguished. A win-win for all our members because we are equal and we respect ourselves.”
He, however, described the task before the convention committee as onerous.
“Nigerians are looking to the PDP to give them an intelligent and vibrant president, under the party’s platform come 2023.”
