Coordinator of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Oyo State, Dr. Ajibola Saubana Muraina, has denied reports that he has made appointments into offices in the state.
Muraina, while declaring that his mandate was to ensure the genuine reconciliation of all aggrieved members urged them to shun rumour mongering which would not augur well for the progress of the party.
Muraina who made the clarification in a press release issued to news men yesterday advised party said, “There is an unsubstantiated rumour going on that I have appointed coordinators for PDP in local governments in the state. This is far from the truth. I have no mandate to do such.
“I am very well focused on my mandate which is to ensure sincere and genuine reconciliation among our party members in the state and on this we are making tremendous progress.
> “I have also been inundated with calls informing me that some persons are planning to package tissues of lies to petition our party headquarters on my appointment. The PDP as a party has moved to the next level. The days of blackmail, rumour mongering and backsliding are gone for good” he said.
Muraina noted that the PDP has taken note of the damaging role of rumour mongering, blackmail in causing downfall in the recent past and these wonderful current leaders will not allow such things to destroy our party again.
> He enjoined all party members to rise up to work for the party “and give us support to receive all former leaders and teeming supporters and even new members to the party so that we can have a strong platform that will be difficult for other parties to beat in 2019 rather than engaging in rumour mongering, petition writing and other vices.”
The Coordinator added that in this time of hunger, hardship and general frustration, ”let us come together without bitterness or hatred and ignore frivolous issues but involve ourselves in constructive engagement to bring back to Nigeria, a purposeful government of peace and prosperity in a land flowing with milk and honey. The cooperation of all of us as embers of PDP family is key.”
