PDP Chairmanship: I’m Ready To Serve In Any Capacity – Ombugadu

A two-time candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in the Nasarawa State governorship election, David Ombugadu has said though he has not decided to run for the chairmanship of the party, he is ready to serve the PDP in any capacity.

There have been calls for the party to cede its chairmanship position, which has been vacant since March 10, 2023, to Ombugadu because of the successes he led PDP to achieve in Nasarawa State in the last general election.

But the former governorship candidate in a statement issued on Saturday, said he has heard their voices “loud and clear”, but added that he has not “succumbed yet to the calls to run for the position of the National Chairman of the party.

“Please do not feel disappointed but let me restate that when duty calls for me to undertake any other assignment for our party, I will not hesitate to serve; suffice to say that I remain loyal to our party and its leadership at all levels.”

Ombugadu noted that he has a lot to offer to the party, stating that he has always responded to clarion calls by the people to serve in different capacities.

“I feel humbled that much of these calls emphasise our antecedents, especially with keen references to our creativity, stamina, innovation, the populist enthusiasm that was aroused as well as the dividends of democracy that our mandate yielded all over Nasarawa state; worthy attestations from the good people of Akwanga/Nasarawa Eggon/ Wamba Federal Constituency whom I represented between 2011-2019 and the very positive impacts of our keen pursuit of the gubernatorial ticket of Nasarawa state in 2019 and 2023 remain very relevant,” he said.

The former lawmaker stated that the PDP is an organic, organised, and structured political party that believes in the principle of federal character, justice, equity, and fairness in Nigeria.

“These calls are in line with the people-focused constitution of our great party, and I believe strongly that it is borne out of patriotism and love for democracy,” he added.

He told his supporters to keep hope alive and expressed the belief that a better future awaits the PDP from its present challenges.
