The Forum of People’s Democratic Party (PDP) Former Speakers of State House of Assembly (FOFSHA) said that APC change mantra is a colossal fraud, just as they assured former president GoodLuck Jonathan of creating an avenue within the party structure to contribute positively towards the rebirth and positioning their party.
The forum stated this in their first formal outing and courtesy visit to former President GoodLuck Jonathan in Abuja.
The chairman of the FOFSHA, Rt Hon Inuwa Garba said that its unfortunate that the present government has failed to live up to expectations.
According to him,”Today the culture of Change is so disgusting that the common man believes that the APC engineered mantra is a colossal fraud devised to achieve total frustration of the progressive strides of the PDP administration and to put our economy on its toes.
“We have watched with great trepidation the ruin of our national patrimony and the decadence of a once vibrant economy, that today we believe the all hands must be on deck if we are to avoid a total collapse of this nation. Our thought out objective is to create avenue within the structure of our great party, PDP, to contribute positively towards the rebirth and repositioning of our party.
FOFSHA said they thought it wise to accord the former President the utmost respect of intimating him of their objectives and total commitments to the rebirth and rejuvenation of their dear party, in all facets of our national polity.
According to Rt Hon. Inuwa Garba “This body came together as formers Speakers of PDP in the various states so as to also make contributions towards the repositioning our party with a view to forming government in all subsequent elections as it is currently being desired by most Nigerians.
“You will agree with us Sir that since the political misadventure of 2015 election, our dear country Nigeria has been gravitating from one level of political and economic ruin to another and even to near precipice.
“We have never seen it this bad that the fortunes of our national patrimony has been subjected to so much abuse and rape, yet those at the helm of authority are heaping and transferring blames on phantom and imaginary enemies. Never in the history of Nigeria have we been governed by a gang of clueless administrators who have taken negative propaganda to an unprecedented level.
“Learning from past errors, we believe PDP can be projected once again to the heights of national governance in the very near future.
Your Excellency sir, this courtesy visit is to essentially reassure you of our great commitment to the statesmanly roles you have vested in the repositioning efforts of our party.
“The real CHANGE is inevitable if we must move forward. FOFSHA shall desire a speedy integration of our potentials into the party structure in this dispensation and be counted upon to deliver on issues of national relevance. Once again we thank you for receiving us as we pray that the collective desire for a true social, economic and political transformation which you envisaged for Nigeria and Africa was just delayed, shall come to pass.
