Governor Theodore Orji of Abia State has inaugurated an 18-member committee to appraise the performance of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in the state in the last general elections.
The committee is charged with the responsibility of ascertaining the perceivable problems and constraints faced by the party during the elections.
Orji during the inauguration of the committee at Government House Umuahia charged the committee to review and appraise the performance of the party in the last polls and ascertain the remote and perceived problems faced by the party in that election with a view to proffering solutions capable of leading to improved performance in future polls.
He said that even though the PDP won in many of the contested elections in the last elections in the state, that victory did not generate the usual euphoria that characterize the party in the previous elections.
Orji said that the committee is to provide the way forward for the party including requirements for reforming and rebuilding a stronger and more resilient PDP in the state, and gave the committee two weeks to complete the assignment.
Responding on behalf of other members of the committee, the chairman of the committee, Chief Ndidi Okereke thanked the governor for the opportunity given to them to serve and promised to do the job judiciously.
Chief Charles Ogbonnaya, Iheanacho Achim, Dr. Sam Ahiwe, Chief Chinagorom Nwankpa, Chief Isaac Ogbonna, K.O. Mgbeahuru, Ngozi Ekeke are members of the committee.
Others are Hon. Emeka Stanley, Rt. Hon. Barrister Chinedum Elechi, Chris Osuagwu, Dr. Sampson Orji, P.C. Mba, D.K. Uduma, Barrister Loveth Ofegbu, Jerry Awa, Mrs. Blessing Nwagba and Cherechi Nwogu.
