“We are all one. We are one big PDP family. That umbrella is big enough to accommodate everybody.

“I’m going to be meeting with whoever is the head of your organization, and we’re going to make sure it’s an integral part of what we are doing; from the hierarchy—state, zonal, local government and ward levels are all going to be integrated.

“Let me also remind you that we still have a task ahead. That task is one we have with the adversaries. Those adversaries are the ones we must defeat. We have to begin to put our people together to get them ready for that task ahead. That’s the one we have to go as a family and defeat the adversaries”.
