The President of the Senate, David Mark, has said that the People’s Democratic Party, PDP is heading for destruction if its members fail to immediately end their infighting.

Mr. Mark made the comment when the deputy senate president, Ike Ekweremadu, who heads the PDP Post – election assessment committee visited him Wednesday, a statement from his office said.

“The PDP is already haemorrhaging, unless we halt the bleeding and find the necessary therapy, we may be heading for the final burial of the party,” Mr. Mark was quoted as saying.

“The party is already in a comatose status and we should do all we can to resuscitate the party rather than this unnecessary rancour and bulk passing.”

The Senate president said those fighting in the party should dialogue.

“We have gotten enough bruises and we need not inflict further pains on ourselves with continuous bickering,” he said.

“Enough of this blame-game.  We should return to the drawing board and need not wash our dirty linen in the public, anymore.

“I believe a useful lesson has been learnt from the PDP electoral misfortune.  As for me, it is time to put on our thinking caps and chart a new course.”

He said he believed Mr. Ekweremadu and his team will do a good job and unearth the remote and immediate causes of the party’s misfortune and make recommendations that will enhance the future of the party.

Mr. Mark said the new status of the party as an opposition is a challenge which PDP members must face with all honesty, sincerity of purpose and dedication to duty.
