Former Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship candidate in Lagos state, Jimi Agbaje has condemned the All Progressives Congress (APC) for failing to deliver the change it promised to Nigerians.

Agbaje also admitted that the PDP had made mistakes in the past but it would soon be reformed.

The former governorship candidate made the comments while speaking to journalists in Abuja after indicating his interest to become PDP chairman.

‘The PDP gave way so that Nigerians can test what other parties have in stock. But it is regrettable that party has failed to provide the change promised. Every youth in Nigeria will like to see PDP reformed, and the reformation has started,’ Agbaje said according to Vanguard.

“We accept that mistakes were made in the past in the PDP, especially with our internal democracy. So we have to go back to the position of the founding fathers of our party on internal democracy.

“And that means that we have go back to our constitution. That is very important. We have to be more all-inclusive as we have been thus far. It is about bringing people nearer rather than sending them far away from the party. Everybody must feel to be part of this party.

“What I bring to the table is that I am not a member of any faction or any tendencies. I am in a position to talk to everybody, to ensure that if you love the PDP, then it is time to come back to the zone.

“I will appeal to those who feel very strongly to join us because Nigeria cannot make the progress it deserves without a viable opposition and that PDP is going to provide that opposition as an alternative government and in a responsible manner,” he added.

The PDP is currently involved in a leadership crisis due to the refusal of former chairman, Ali Modu Sheriff to vacate the office.

Sheriff was officially removed on May 21, but insists that he remains the valid occupant of the office till 2018.
