‘PDP is dying,’ Senate President says party’s burial is imminent

The Senate President, David Mark, has said that his party, People’s Democratic Party (PDP), is nearing destruction if its members do not resolve the ongoing internal crisis with immediate alacrity.

Mark said this while receiving the PDP Post-election assessment committee led by the deputy senate president, Ike Ekweremadu on Wednesday, May 6.

“The PDP is already haemorrhaging, unless we halt the bleeding and find the necessary therapy, we may be heading for the final burial of the party,” a statement from his office quoted Mark as saying.

“The party is already in a comatose status and we should do all we can to resuscitate the party rather than this unnecessary rancour and bulk passing.”

“We have gotten enough bruises and we need not inflict further pains on ourselves with continuous bickering,” he said.

He added that, “enough of this blame-game.  We should return to the drawing board and need not wash our dirty linen in the public, anymore.

“I believe a useful lesson has been learnt from the PDP electoral misfortune.  As for me, it is time to put on our thinking caps and chart a new course.”

Mark said the PDP must, in all honesty and dedication to duty, face its new status as an opposition, which he described as a challenge.
