The Chairman of the People’s Democratic Party PDP Lagos State Chapter, Engr Adedeji Doherty has implored all party leaders and elders in the respective wards and local government areas in the State to consider the allocation of 35% of Exco positions to women, they should also not leave out the youths and non-Lagos indigenes in the party structure at all the various levels within the party.
He stated that he expects the proposed demographic change in the party to start from now.
He also implored all leaders and elders at all the levels to see themselves as “the conscience of the party” rather than a master servant kind of relationship which exist at the moment.
He further besieged the leaders and elders of the party to use their resources, intellect and political experience to mentor the youths who are the upcoming leaders while also directing the ship of the party to the terminal of victory in 2023.
Engr Doherty further stated that, he would like to leave behind a legacy whereby Women, Youths, non-indigenes and indeed every member of the party would enjoy an all inclusive leadership and collegiate style of administration, going forward.
He advised that for the coming Congress where the managers of the party for the next four years would be voted for, in most wards and local government areas, all aspiring members should try hard to meet each other halfway by nominating consensus candidates, this he believes will in turn lead to a United party.
He further advised that “Party Congresses are meant to Unite us and not Divide Us.”
He reiterated that the PDP of today should be one that everyone irrespective of faction or group should be included in the scheme of things to ensure a formidable party.
He however stressed that loyalty to the party should never be negotiated as loyalty to any individual undermines to collective progress of the party.
He wished all contestants Goodluck as they vie for the various Party positions.
