Diasporans for PDP says “2021 National Retreat sets the right tone and target for a nation in despair”

It is not a myth that Nigerians home and abroad have been dejected and disgusted by the way our country is being managed by the All Progressives' Congress (APC) under the leadership of President Muhammadu Buhari.


Just by looking around from state to state, local government to local government, city to city, town to town, and village to village across Nigeria, one cannot help but be dismayed by the prevalence of misery, poverty, hardship, hunger, dilapidation, and complete degradation of the cultural, political and economic fundamentals of the country.

“The fabrics of our nation have been totally weakened by the bad political and economic decisions of the APC and Buhari administration. As a result, Nigeria is in a state of emergency,” said the Founder and National Chair of a US-based registered not-for-profit organization of Nigerians in diaspora, Diasporans for PDP.

In the presence of the current national misery and increasing dissatisfaction by Nigerians from east to west, north to south, Diasporans for PDP, has reassured fellow Nigerians that “hope is around the corner.”

This reassurance was made public in a press statement made available to media by the organization's National Publicity Secretary, Dr. Chidi Igwe, in which Diasporans for PDP, hailed the People's Democratic Party (PDP) as “setting the right tone and target to rescue Nigeria from the current state of emergency.”

According to the press statement, Honourable Victoria Pamugo emphasized that Diasporans for PDP is "pleased with the tone PDP is setting." Members in diaspora agree that PDP is sending the right message to all Nigerians, a message to unite the country, restore the economy, and rescue Nigeria from the nearly eight years of damage done by APC and President Buhari’s administration.

"When you look at all the political parties cropping up in Nigeria today, there is no doubt that PDP is the only party that can save Nigeria from this damage being caused by APC's incompetence and President Buhari's bad administration. So Nigerians have to choose wisely and be strategic with their votes in 2023," Hon. Pamugo said.

"We are delighted to see PDP focusing on the right things, which is to rescue and rebuild Nigeria," she said.

You will recall that just less than one month after the election of a new National Working Committee at the just concluded October 30-31 National Convention of the party held in Abuja, PDP is holding its 2021 National Retreat on November 23-24, under the theme “It’s time to rescue Nigeria.”

The US-based organization saluted the party's resolve to focus on rebuilding Nigeria and making it once again a country that “all of us can be proud of.”

“2023 will provide an opportunity for Nigerians to change direction and elect PDP to undo the damage and retrogression APC and President Buhari have caused in the past eight years they’ve been in office,” Hon. Pamugo said.

"We want a Nigeria we can all call home, where there will be job opportunities, social support systems, security, good roads, good health-care system, good educational system, world-class infrastructure, reliable power supply, adequate food and portable water supply channels,” she said.

“We want a modern and booming economy that can compete with other western countries, not just one that is marred by mismanagement, corruption and lack of vision, as we currently have it today under this APC administration," Hon. Pamugo said.

“We want a Nigeria that is prosperous and values the life of every citizen... A Nigeria that creates things, manufactures and exports things to other countries and builds national wealth... Not just a dumping ground for foreign manufactured goods and services,” she said.

“Nigerians are smart people. Look at us living in foreign lands! We are the ones helping to build economic progress in other countries. Look at us! Imagine if all the skills we are deploying in other countries are brought back to Nigeria! Just imagine it...!”

“All you need is a government that has a good vision, one that can focus on building an empowering economy and not a corrupt system that frustrates citizens and force brain-drain upon itself, with its citizens leaving for other countries in search of greener pasture,” she lamented.

“We know that PDP will move Nigeria in the right direction,” she said with full optimism.

Diasporans for PDP expressed hope that Nigerians will make the right decision in 2023 and rescue the country by voting out APC.

The organization re-emphasized its mandate to promote the civic and social welfare of all Nigerian peoples, to promote objective learning and literacy, patriotism, women, children and youth empowerment, and to promote opportunities for strong civic and political participation in Nigeria.

With members in America, Canada, Europe, Asia and Africa, Diasporans for PDP is head-quartered in Houston, Texas, USA.

A key part of what the organization is fighting for is for Nigerians living abroad to be able to vote in general elections, just like it is done in other
