Twelve out of thirteen governors of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) were at Government House, Port Harcourt for a strategic meeting ahead of the  2023 general elections.

Push News 24 International learnt that the meeting was aimed at ensuring the Forum presents a common front on whom to support as the PDP Presidential Candidate in 2023.

Communique Issued by The PDP Governors’ Forum At The End Of Their Meeting In Port Harcourt, Rivers State, January 17, 2022

The PDP Governors’ Forum held its regular meeting crucial to the sustenance of our Democracy on Monday, 17th January, 2022, at the Rivers State Government House, Port Harcourt, the first in the new year. The meeting once again reviewed the state of the States, the state of the nation and THE PDP and issued the following Communique:

  1. The PDP Governors congratulated the entire PDP family for conducting a smooth and credible National Convention that led to the emergence of the highly acclaimed Senator Dr. Iyorchia Ayu-led National Executive Committee and commended the new PDP NWC for hitting the ground running with respect to repositioning the PDP into a credible vehicle for RESCUING and REBUILDING Nigeria which has been battered by bad economy, insecurity, unemployment and other social ills by the incompetent and inept APC Administration.
  2. The PDP Governors requested the National Assembly to quickly conclude deliberations on the Electoral Act Amendment Bill either by overriding Mr President’s veto or deleting areas of complaints. The meeting advised that the option of sustaining Mr President’s veto would lead to a quicker resolution and would deny Mr President the opportunity to once again truncate a reformed Electoral jurisprudence for Nigeria. An early concluded Electoral Act is vital for credible elections.
  3. The meeting lamented the continued state of insecurity in the country, the persistent and ceaseless flow of Nigerians’ blood on a daily basis in many parts of Nigeria, the near collapse of the security situation in Nigeria. The strategies to confront terrorists, kidnappers, bandits and other criminals is still a major problem of the APC administration.
  4. The meeting expressed regrets that Mr President is unwilling, from his recent comments discountenancing the proposals for state policing, to participate in reviewing the structural problems of tackling insecurity in Nigeria and urges Mr President to reconsider his position and consider decentralisation and restructuring of the security architecture as the most viable solution, together with proper arming, funding and training requirements for Security Agencies.
  5. The Nigerian Economy has continued to deteriorate and Nigerians have become numb and accustomed to bad economic news as exemplified by the inconsistent and differential exchange rate regime, high interest rates, unsustainable unemployment figures and borrowing spree some of which have not been applied to important projects, and other bad economic indicators. In particular, it is clear that the APC Government is a massive failure when compared with the records of PDP in government. The PDP handed over a $550 billion economy (the largest in Africa), but under APC, Nigeria is the Poverty Capital of the world. In 2015, under PDP, the exchange rate was N198 per Dollar, it is now under APC almost N500 to a Dollar; In 2015, unemployment rate was 7.3% under PDP, it is now 33%, one of the highest in the world under APC; In 2015, the Pump price of Petroleum was N87 per litre, it is now N165 per litre and climbing under APC. Debt Servicing now under APC takes over 98% of the Federal budget. The tales of woe is endless.
  6. The PDP Governors noted that the management of our Oil and Gas resources, the administration of Federation Account remittances have remained opaque, confusing and non – transparent. In addition, the transition to NNPC Ltd under the Petroleum Industry Act has not been properly streamlined to ensure that the interests of all the tiers of Government are protected, consistent with the 1999 Constitution.
  7. The meeting urged eligible Nigerians of all walks of life, particularly the Youths, to register en masse with INEC to exercise their franchise in the 2023 general elections. It further noted that the next election is a very consequential election that should be used to end the dominance of very youth unfriendly APC Government; a government that had the arrogance to deny Nigerian youths of the use of TWITTER, a business friendly tool for the young, for over a year. The youths should empower themselves to determine who leads them.
  8. The PDP Governors congratulated the Chief Host, His Excellency, Governor Nyesom Ezenwo Wike, CON, for the very high standards of hosting and for the great leadership performance he has entrenched in Rivers State.
  9. The PDP Governors wished Nigerians and PDP Members a happy new Year.

In attendance are:

Gov. Udom Emmanuel – Akwa Ibom State – Member

Gov. Sen. Douye Diri – Bayelsa State – Member

House of Representative aspirant and a People’s Democratic Party (PDP) Chieftain in Amuwo Odofin Federal Constituency, Hon (Mrs) Barr. Chiegeonu Dorothy Ilegbune has urged Nigerians to use the occasion of this year’s Christmas to strengthen the bond of love for one another, renew their hope and intensify their prayers for a brighter future for our nation.

Push News 24 International confirms that Christmas was traditionally a Christian festival celebrating the birth of Jesus, but in the early 20th century, it also became a secular family holiday, observed by Christians and non-Christians alike.

Hon Dorothy, charged leaders at all levels to use the period to bring joy and hope to the people by committing themselves to a life of selfless service as demonstrated in the gift of the Lord Jesus Christ to bring salvation to mankind.

In a statement by her media office made available to Push News 24 International, the legal luminary turned politician, said: “Christmas points to the refreshing truth of God love to mankind and the fact that, in His mercies, He has not given up on our nation in spite of agonizing hardship and insecurity we face under the current insensitive and suppressive administration”.

Ilegbune said the Christmas period calls for sober reflection even as she enjoined Christians in Amuwo Odofin Federal Constituency to pray for the country amidst all economic and security challenges.

The 2 times House of Representatives aspirant said the character of Jesus Christ, who is the main reason for the celebrations, should reflect in the life of every Christian.

She noted that the period also calls for unity of purpose among Nigerians, urging the citizens to be their brother’s keeper at all times.

Barr. Dorothy noted that Nigeria is passing through a lot at the moment but that with the prayers of the citizens and their support, the leaders would be able to provide good direction.

The smart-spoken woman advocate charged leaders at all levels to use the period to bring joy and hope to the people by committing themselves to a life of selfless service as demonstrated in the gift of the Lord Jesus Christ to bring salvation to mankind.

Christmas points to the refreshing truth of God love to mankind and the fact that, in His mercies, He has not given up on our nation in spite of agonizing hardship and insecurity we face under the current incompetent, insensitive and suppressive administration.”

“I am deeply saddened that in the last six years, Nigerians are not able to afford the basic necessities of life and have been marking major festivities in tears, despair, and utter hopelessness due to some unfriendly people oriented policy of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

I Barr. Mrs Dorothy Ilegbune therefore, urge Nigerians to use the Yuletide period to encourage and stand up for one another; share and show love, especially to the less privileged, the displaced, and victims of the senseless acts of terrorism that have escalated across the Nation.

“I also call on those behind the mindless killings, kidnapping banditry, and other acts of terrorism in our country to have a rethink as their actions cannot be justified under any guise whatsoever.

Nevertheless, as representative hopeful of the people of Amuwo Odofin Federal Constituency, I will remains undeterred in standing for the rights and wellbeing of all Nigerians at this critical time. I will never relent in my pursuit of canvassing good governance including legislations that will guarantee credible elections in furtherance of our collective quest to rescue our nation from misrule,” Dorothy said.
