The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) says it remains the best alternative political party to correct and address the present challenges in the country.

Vena Ikem, PDP chair in Cross River, said this in Calabar on Friday when the Liberty Support Group, a socio-political group, paid him a courtesy visit.

He noted that the antecedents of the party over the years speaks volume of its capacity, competence and nobility.

“When our party held sway at the centre, we did not experience these indices like insecurity, hardship, economic woes, and (the) gradual collapse of key sectors that are gradually pointing to an almost failed state,” stated the PDP chief. “The exorbitant cost of living and the challenges of insecurity that have seen many innocent Nigerians killed should convince every rational prospective voter to cast their vote for the PDP, come 2023.”

According to the Cross River PDP chairman, the party’s governorship candidate, Sandy Onor, has the people’s interest at heart and urged the people to rally behind him.

Peter Igbe, the group’s director-general, disclosed that the group was saddled with mobilising the state’s people to enthrone a responsible government.

“Gone are the days we used to introduce ourselves as proudly Cross Riverians. Today, we are ashamed of our state status. The damage on our collective heritage and psyche is simply unprecedented,” Mr Igbe. “We opted to pitch our tent with the PDP after a holistic appraisal of the various governorship candidates on parade across the parties.”
