"Even at its worst, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) government is one hundred times better than the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC)."

"The PDP government was not and could never have been perfect,” Asadu said. “Few human endeavours are totally perfect, but the worst of the PDP government is 100 times better than the best of the present APC government.

"We are all witnesses to a party under which the government has not only impoverished our people by leading us into an avoidable recession, without a single clue as to how to get us out of it, but also runs a government under which all truly democratic institutions are under siege.

"The PDP cannot and will not be allowed to die just like that while this rot continue," the lawmaker added.

He added the PDP house caucus has the capability to intervene decisively on the present state of affairs of the party.

Asadu chairs the House ad-hoc committee set up to intervene in the current PDP leadership crisis.
