“As part of this goal, I am privileged to be concluding today, a unique aspect of the founding principles of the PDP, a principle that espouses the values of diversity, the strengthening of national cohesion through zoning and rotation as well as the pursuit of inclusive representation for both women and men.
“For these very reasons, the PDP has survived many challenges and is today making progress in providing a political platform that is committed to building pillars of peace, unity, development and actions to ensure that the deprivations suffered by citizens these last 6 years of unimpressive governance under the All-Progressive Congress (APC) are reversed.
“These very pillars are those that will bring back the human dignity that has been lost and provide the basis for Nigerians to fight for their rights, demand the benefit of citizenship as peoples living under our common pledge and creed of unity to this country.”
Ciroma “deeply appreciate the vote of confidence that the party has placed in its instruments and Constitution and also the hope these provide for a better future in Nigeria in many of its constitutional articles to “defend the sanctity of democracy through the firm enforcement of a strict code of conduct among its members (Section 2(g) of the PDP Constitution).
“These values are foundational and also behind the party’s belief in the implementation of the affirmative action clause contained in Sec 6(7) and the provision for the emancipation and participation of women in all levels of governance as visaged in Sec 6 (5) of the party’s constitution driven by all these constitutional provisions, existing congress guidelines and the decisions of NEC.
