Chief Emeka Ihedioha has frowned at a situation where some people want to get their desires through the short cut, advising contenders who aspire for offices to reach out to delegates and convince them of their votes.
The former Deputy Speaker was reacting this morning in an ongoing interview with the Africa Independent Television (AIT), adding that those alleging there were crises in the party were not being charitable to the party.
“We do not have crises in the PDP. What we have is contentions, and this is normal because people are contending for various offices. Those going to the press and disparaging the National Caretaker Committee are not being fair to the party” He contended that these persons have access to the national office and they should have explored these channels before going to the press.
Ihedioha wondered exactly what were the issues at hand when there has never been any complaints from any angle that anything or any state’s congresses have been manipulated.
He advised aspirants that the party is far more important than any of them. “Whatever you are doing, try more to persuade delegates to vote for you. When aggrieved channel your complains to the right channels. We should not start over-valuing ourselves when you have not yet won the office for which you are seeking”, he said.
