STATEMENT OF SUPPORT.
Yesterday after due consultations, I was at the National Secretariat of our great party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Abuja along with friends and supporters to submit my nomination form as I officially join the race to contest for the office of National Publicity Secretary at the forthcoming National Convention holding between 8th and 10th December 2017.
It was a very colourful event as Senator Abdul Ningi and Prince Dayo Adeyeye, both members of the National Caretaker Committee received our team.
For many who have been following events in the party, you will agree with me that the challenges before the PDP today are new, unprecedented and enormous, prime among which is to reinvent our party and reposition it to her glory.
Invariably, the task will require a competent matured, rugged and courageous hand with a clear understanding of the challenges and as well, who has capacity and passion to develop commensurate strategies and actions in line with the core objectives of our party.
In all humility I am persuaded to say that I am suitably prepared and ready to serve in this capacity. My experience in the Information and Communication sector and as well my network built over the years on the job gave me the unique edge to offer our party excellence and professionalism in the duties and responsibilities of National Publicity Secretary.
My background is that of a committed party man, a team player, a bridge between the old and the young.
I will ensure we give the needed vibrancy and fire expected of a formidable opposition in a view to ensuring PDP returns as Nigeria ruling party by 2019.
In view of the above, I hereby seek the support and prayers of my friends, family and well wishers most importantly seek the vote of thousands of delegates to this very special National Convention.
Very soon I shall be unveiling my agenda for this very important and strategic office.
Power belongs to the people. So join me in the struggle to reclaim Nigeria back to prosperity.
Together we can reinvent and reposition the PDP!
Comrade Ben Duntoye
(Aspirant for office of PDP National Publicity Secretary 2017)
