Patrick Asadu, a house of reps member, says the worst Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) government is better than the current All Progressives Congress (APC) administration.
Asadu, a lawmaker from Enugu state, said this on Tuesday while accepting to chair an ad hoc committee set up by the PDP lawmakers to find a solution to the party’s crisis.
He accused the APC of making Nigerians poor by leading the country into “an avoidable recession”.
The lawmaker said the country is now back to the state of nature due to government’s insensitivity to the security of lives and property.
“The PDP government was not and could never have been perfect, and few human endeavours are totally perfect, but the worst of the PDP government is 100 times better than the best of the present APC government,” Asadu said.
“We are all witnesses to a party under which the government has not only impoverished our people by leading us into an avoidable recession, without a single clue as to how to get us out of it but also runs a government under which all truly democratic institutions are under siege.
“The PDP cannot and will not be allowed to die just like that while this rot continues. We shall stand shoulder to shoulder with all members of this very important house of reps PDP caucus under the able leadership of Rt. Hon. Leo Okuwa Ogor and his team, with the senate caucus of the PDP, with other party organs, leaders, stakeholders and members alike, no matter which opinion or on which side of the present divide in the PDP they stand and indeed Nigerians who are obviously hurting from the mistake of the 2015 general election.”
He added the PDP house caucus had the capability to intervene decisively in the present state of affairs of the party.
Members of the committee are; Toby Okechukwu, Tajudeen Yusuf, Rimande Shawulu, Nkiruka Onyejocha, Kingsley Chinda.
Others are; Akinlaja Joseph, Joan Mrakpor, Okwu Samson, Ben Nwankwo, Simon Arabor, Sunday Marshal and Ali Isa.
