Imo State chairman of the Social Democratic Party (SDP), Ogbuefi Val Amafili, has carpeted members of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) who defected to the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP). He described them as political prostitutes and rolling stones that can never gather any moss in the nation’s firmament.
Amafili who attributed the ceaseless torrents of defections to lack of patience, tolerance and understanding among the political class stressed that while the measure is both a plus and a minus, it is alien to the more advanced democratic nations of the world.
The SDP Chieftain who spoke to newsman at the party’s secretariat in Owerri shortly after the election of new state executives of the party, however lamented that politicians usually desert their party for another when they feel disillusioned and uncomfortable and advised party leaders to always shun arrogance and high handedness in their leadership since no one has monopoly of knowledge.
The state party chairman who described the state congress of the party as hitch free and very successful boasted that the party stands for progress, social justice and good governance and is poised to dislodge the ruling APC in the state from power next year.
“We have fashioned a people-oriented program and we will surely move to government House Owerri and also win all the House of Assembly seats next year”.
If given the mandate to serve, Amafili assured that the SDP would liberate the state from its current state of abyss, fix her economy and turn the state around with agricultural revolution, industrialisation, job creation and maximum security thereby giving the state a new face structurally and economically for an all round development.
He said that the party is prepared to work with any coalition but would not merge with any political party so as not to lose the identity of the party.
