Foremost aspirant to the position of Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party in Udu LGA for the coming party congress, Mr. Austin Kpomah, has disclosed that he was in the race to reposition the party for better results and make the party retain her enviable place as election winning brand.
He gave the assurance on Friday in a chat with newsmen at Otor-Udu during which he explained his reasons for entering the race to lead the party in the next four years, giving kudos to the elders and leaders of the party led by Chief Eddie Ono-Sorhue.
Mr. Kpomah emphasized that with the impressive results posted from the last election, there was the need to build on the success story with characters that will invest greater credibility and not act as hindrance to the progress of the party.
‘’I am not a controversial character. As a complete gentleman, I had maintained a low profile without stoking the fire of controversy while being firm in my conviction and support for what is right in working for the PDP over the years. I am a PDP faithful through and through and I cannot trade the interest of Udu for any pecuniary consideration. I am a principled man, who will stand for what is right. I will listen to the leaders because, as Chairman, one cannot succeed without giving ears to the leaders and other stakeholders’’, Mr. Austin Kpomah assured.
He added that PDP in Udu was passing through a phase and that only truth, character and inclusive leadership can heal many wounds that have been inflicted on the psyche of many party members.
‘’As Chairman of the party in Udu LGA, we shall return the party to the people, give ordinary members a platform for them to express themselves and also position myself as a brand that could attract respect, invest dignity to the party and restore hope and confidence in the ability of the PDP to achieve greater results in future elections’’, he added.
He disclosed that he was campaigning round critical stakeholders in the party leadership on the conviction that the party belong to the people and in the spirit of mutual understanding of the role of the party members in the emergence of the next executive of the party.
He added that he was going to submit himself to any process put in place for the emergence of the next Exco of the party. He however sounded confident that he was going to emerge Chairman and the new face of the PDP in the coming dispensation.
