The group said: “The problems that dragged our Party to failure during the 2015 general election was solely due to incompetent leadership. Having come this far, it is therefore, very important never to repeat such a mistake of leaving our Party in the hands of unscrupulous elements again.
“Men and Women of high proven integrity and genuine love for our Party must be identified and handed over the affairs of our great Party, if we must regain our lost glory.
“People of questionable character, who have been tested before on different capacities and found wanting, should be resisted. Its time to sanitize and make our party the envy of all.
“It may interest you to note that, the PDP Volunteers Group have X-ray all the contestant for the position of PDP National Chairman and found out that all the Contestants are good but His Excellency, Otumba Gbenga Daniel is found to be the best.
