National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Bamanga Tukur, Wednesday said the ongoing reforms within the party were geared towards repositioning the party to reclaim the South-west and other states that the party lost during the 2011 general elections.

Tukur, who spoke in Abuja, when he received a delegation led by an Ondo State politician, Otumba Oyewole Fashewe, said the PDP would not field any discredited candidate for any election in 2015.

The PDP national chairman said the National Working Committee (NWC) had clearly spelt out the details of the reforms and as such, would not wait till 2015 to start taking positive actions.

According to him, “Some people are accusing us of not doing anything. But you and I know that we need not rush in embarking on actions aimed at making our great party regain its groove in political engineering and operations. We are, at the moment, making consultations with PDP elders, youths, women and every relevant group on how best to take off so that we begin to regain the lost grounds, henceforth.”

To achieve this, he said the party would engage governors elected on the platform of the party in the reform agenda.

He said the reconciliation, rebuilding and reformation of the party was in line with the Dr. Alex Ekwueme-led committee report, which was aimed at repositioning of the party to regain the lost states and constituencies by 2015.

“I am saying that we have started reconstructing our beautiful umbrella and in the process, we will pluck all loopholes, we will extend the shelter, we will strengthen the structure and make it more attractive to everybody. At the end of it all, PDP will rise up powerfully and prove its strength as the only National Party in Nigeria through subsequent elections that will be devoid of rigging,” he said.
