A member of the Peoples Redemption Party (PRP) Senator Shehu Sani Monday said the party needs major reform to enable it contest every elective post in all constituencies across the country.
Sani said this when he received executive members of the party in Kaduna state who paid him Sallah homage at his home in Kaduna.
“The task before us is how to reform our party, and make it possible for men of honour and integrity to take over relevant positions in the move towards winning elections,” he said.
He cautioned that “the PRP is not a party for anybody”, as it was founded on progressive socialist ideas with defined directions and goals.
“If you are not of the socialist Marxist progressives left, don’t think of yourself as a PRP member, you are in the wrong place, its ideology is clearly defined.
“You cannot be a leader of PRP if you think and behave like bourgeoisie,” he said.
According to the former senator, Nigeria’s future depends on a political party with clear ideological direction of which the PRP represents.
He cautioned party members against ethnic and religious politics, saying that “we need to consider all members of the party as one, and work together under one banner and ideology of PRP to free our country.
“PRP must resolve to embrace all as one and unite to defeat all forces of decisiveness and injustice that have taken over the reign of leadership in the state,” he said.
Speaking on the policies of Buhari administration, Sani said there are mixed grills of good and bad.
“We should identify with good policies and openly condemn and reject bad policies, we must not sit on the fence on matters of right and wrong, we must be neutral on matters of justice and injustice,” Sani said.
He assured the delegation of his unwavering commitment to the PRP and its desire to seize power at all levels in 2023.
Sani thanked the state executive council members of the party for their steadfastness and good leadership.
According to him, the PRP is the only party that has survived since the second republic to today without compromising its principle of honour and integrity.
He therefore urged the party leaders to continue to uphold the integrity of the party, “until we return the PRP to power not only in Kaduna state but in the whole of Nigeria.
“History beckons on you to stand up to reach out to the people historically attached to the PRP, to free the people of Nigeria from deception and misrepresentation.”
