The Peoples Democratic Party, Ebonyi State Chapter, has stated that the party is the last hope for the state’s allegedly ‘oppressed’ residents.
Mr. Tochukwu Okorie, the state chairman of the party, stated this in a statement on Tuesday.
He was reacting to his reinstatement by the Court of Appeal in Abuja on Monday, saying the decision was a “victory for all.”
“Campaigns for the 2023 general elections will get underway in a few weeks.” The PDP remains the only grassroots party in Ebonyi State, the PDP remains the hope of restoration for our dear Ebonyi State’s oppressed people, and the PDP remains the hope and the way forward for Ndi Ebonyi. “The time has come to re-calibrate,” Okorie said.
“On Monday, August 15, 2022, the Appeal Court sitting in Abuja summarily restored the mandate freely given to me by the members of our great party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), as the substantive Chairman of the party in Ebonyi State,” he added.
“I congratulate all of our thronging members, unwavering supporters, leaders, stakeholders, and the entire Ndi-Ebonyi community on this historic victory.”
“This victory is truly our victory, and I am humbled by the outpouring of love, solidarity, and goodwill that has been showered on me, particularly the tenacity with which our members have stood by me and the party throughout this period.”
“As a result, I am taking this opportunity to implore our members to put aside their differences because the time has come to move forward.”
“Campaigns for the 2023 general elections will get underway in a few weeks.” The PDP remains the only grassroots party in Ebonyi State, the PDP remains the hope of restoration for our dear Ebonyi State’s oppressed people, and the PDP remains the hope and the way forward for Ndi Ebonyi. The time has come to re-calibrate.
“As a result of our collective victory, I am calling on all members of our party, aspirants, and candidates for various elective positions under our beautiful umbrella to unite.” Let us work together to rekindle the love and brotherhood that has brought us victories since 1999. Let us recall that the PDP has never lost an election in Ebonyi State.
“We will be rolling out our plans for greater PDP in Ebonyi State in the coming days.” The PDP is one united family; despite our diverse orientations, ambitions, and group loyalties, we are united under the capable umbrella.
“Let me specifically call on disgruntled members of the party to seek peaceful resolutions of their grievances through internal mechanisms, and let all hands be on deck working together for our collective victory.” I want to reassure everyone that we will keep our eyes on the ball and, God willing, will eventually achieve our goal. In Ebonyi State, the PDP is the most entrenched and dominant party. This is the fact that must be re-enacted now.
“Thank you all for your support as I prepare to lead a united Peoples Democratic Party in Ebonyi State.”
