It’s Tough To Keep PDP United, Says Tambuwal

Aminu Tambuwal, chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), says it is not easy keeping the major opposition party united,TheCable reports.

Tambuwal, who is the governor of Sokoto, spoke at the ongoing PDP national convention in Abuja, on Saturday.

He said it is tough to keep PDP together as a big party, with members from across the country and with various interest and desires.

“Diverse as we are, it is, however, clear to me that we are at our best when we remember that we must remain focused and disciplined for the sake of our country and for the benefit our fellow Nigerians,” Tambuwal said.

“In Nigeria, it is tough to remain an item, focused and disciplined, when being an opposition party. The temptation and allure of power can be overwhelming. Some have fallen along the way.”

Tambuwal commended all those “who found the steps to remain focused and disciplined and do the hard work that opposition requires”.

According to him, though there are attempts to scuttle the party’s activities, PDP remains united.
