“Let me today, appeal to party members not to be complacent but to prepare, strategize and win 2019 elections.”We must not allow those who brought the country to its kneels from 1999 to 2015 to come and take us back
National Chairman of the party, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole who led members of the National Working Committee to welcome the president said the party has credible and verifiable persons to conduct direct primaries on the basis of membership register.
“Before I am misunderstood or misquoted, it goes to saying that inspite of the fact that we have these credible membership register, it does not in any way nullify or change the decisions of NEC with regards to the flexibility that was agreed to, the NWC will strive to give practical expression as transparently as possible so that this party will not only be the largest, but the smartest, the most democratic and most cohesive.”
