The President of the 8th Senate, Dr Abubakar Bukola Saraki, has charged members of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Kwara state, to remain steadfast and step up their door to door mobilization membership campaign drive in their various political wards.
He also admonished them to work in unison to avoid any crack within the party as they work towards the party’s success in 2023.
Saraki, according to a statement by his Press Officer on Local Matters, Abdulganiyu Abdulqadir, made the charge on Friday night, during a stakeholders meeting with party elders from Kwara Central. At the stakeholders meeting held at his Ilorin residence, were party elders from Asa, Ilorin East, Ilorin South and Ilorin West Local Government areas.
Deliberations at the meeting centred on political development in the state and ways to further strengthen the PDP in Kwara.
Saraki appreciated the party leaders for holding the party structure and building the bond, which he said is necessary for unity of purpose.
“It is that unity of purpose that has always stood us out from time, unlike any other political family, and we must not take that for granted,” he was quoted as saying.
“Let us continue to strengthen the party structure, we must particularly motivate party members in our wards especially the women and youths to step up the door to door membership mobilization campaign. More and more people must see us as sincere partners in the mission to rescue Kwara from retrogression.”
Party elders from all the LGAs in Kwara Central took turns to make contributions at the meeting, thanking the Senate President for his leadership prowess and dedication to the success of the party.
The party elders who contributed at the meeting pledged to double their efforts in all areas towards the growth of the PDP, in a bid to reclaim power in Kwara come 2023.
