Nigeria: PDM - Politicians Must Save Country From Collapse

The Peoples Democratic Movement (PDM) has lauded opposition political parties in the country for its resolve to give Nigerians an alternative political platform.

A communiqué issued at the end of its meeting in Abuja called on all opposition political parties and organisations across the country to close ranks in order to provide Nigerians with a clear choice between conservative and progressive ideologies.

"While we are gladdened by the development, we implore the opposition to define its own identity based on progressive ideology, with clear and contrasting policies and programs capable of pulling Nigeria out of the current state of despoliation, despair and debasement. Telling Nigerians how bad things are simply won't suffice. Clear and practical solutions are what Nigerians need," the resolution signed by members of Communique Committee: Bashir Yusuf Ibrahim, Prince Tonye Princewill and Murtala Shehu Musa Yar'adua added.

The Movement resolved to open discussions with the organisations of like mind, with a view to finding common grounds on issues of principle, policy and strategy in order to move the Nigerian project to the next level.
