PDP suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, says Ex-minister

"PDP has crossed the bridge from pride to shame,” Orubebe announced.

Orubebe stated this in an open letter to the PDP national chairman, Prince Uche Secondus.

He noted that the PDP needs new ideas to ‘bounce back to power.’

“PDP is still lost in depression and suffering from a post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)… the platform has crossed the bridge from pride to shame,” Orubebe announced.

“We have gone from a party of pride to a party of shame and gradually receding into the abyss of political reality. For the simple reason that the nation is witnessing calls for the rise of a ‘third force’, we are fast becoming a shadow of ourselves.

“The party is gradually coming under the control of certain individuals, who are exhibiting dangerous levels of undemocratic behaviours. One of the biggest challenges that the PDP faces is balancing its needs for funding with established egalitarian values and internal systems.

“If the party continues to be held hostage by few major donors, it will continue to find it difficult to instill the values that will endear us Nigerians.

“We must take our appeal to Nigerians and through our reforms, let the party truly become a people-funded party. Small donations from millions of Nigerians will go a long way in the party’s financial requirements and will create the necessary atmosphere for true ownership among members of the party,” he said in the letter.

Orubebe, famous for the drama at the collation of results for 2015 presidential election called on the PDP to make the necessary reforms before it is too late.
