David Ombugadu, a former governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Nasarawa, says he is yet to make up his mind on running for the office of national chair of the nation’s biggest opposition party.

There have been calls for Ombugadu to throw his hat in the ring for the position.

In a statement on Saturday Ombugadu said: “All of us, and even our political foes know that the PDP is an organic, organised, and structured political party that believes in the principle of federal character, justice, equity, and fairness in Nigeria.”

“These calls are in line with the people-focused constitution of our great party, and I believe strongly that it is borne out of patriotism and love for democracy,” he added.

“In view of the fact that I have a lot to offer and have always responded to clarion calls by our people to serve in different capacities, I’ll like to inform the general public that though my hat is not in the ring, I have heard your voices loud and clear but I have not succumbed yet to the calls to run for the position of National Chairman of our party.

“Please do not feel disappointed but let me restate that when duty calls for me to undertake any other assignment for our party, I will not hesitate to serve; suffice to say that I remain loyal to our party and its leadership at all levels.

“As things stand, I want to thank our leaders and party loyalists who endorsed the various calls and would urge them to keep hope alive because surely, a better future awaits our party’s current challenges.”
