Gombe State Governor, Ibrahim Dankwambo, has appealed to the national leaders of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to do away with personal interests for the sake of peace.

Dankwambo, who spoke in Abuja on Friday, August 12, at the North-East Zonal Caucus meeting of the party, now is the best time to make sacrifices for the party.

He said: "In the past, so many things had remained issues of great concern. Now is the time to make sacrifice for all of us on old or new things that come our way, as a duty to the party.

"Everybody is weeping and crying at the same time.

"If anybody expects any other person to carry him on his wing, we may not get to our destination, because the wing may not be too strong.

"It is the wing of sacrifice that is strong enough to take us to the right destination."

The governor, however, urged PDP leaders from the zone to be careful in reaching a decision on national offices of the party zoned to the area.

"We must avoid decisions that will further divide our members or bring more problems to our party.

"We should respect the views of our stakeholders and take decisions that will unite us," he said.

On his part, Gov. Darius Ishaku of Taraba, expressed the zone’s interest in the office of the national secretary of the party.
