The Peoples Democratic Party has called on notable members of the party who defected to other parties, particularly, the All Progressives Congress (APC) to follow the example of Waziri Adamawa and the former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar and return. The Board of Trustees of the party made the called , urging them to “and return home.” Sen. Walid Jibrin, Chairman of the board,  made the call on Wednesday while briefing journalists in Abuja.

In his words “as the party joyfully welcomes Atiku back to his home PDP, we are equally waiting to receive more members. We are waiting for the President of the Senate, Sen. Bukola Saraki, Sen. Rabiu Kwankwaso, other senators, members of House of Representatives and APC governors who left the PDP. Let all of us unite and take back power from APC come 2019.”

Ahead of the Dec. 9,  PDP Convention, Jibrin urged aspirants to develop the spirit of sportsmanship. He urged aspirants to accept the verdict of delegates, cooperate with the winners and remain loyal to the party as power comes from God. Jibrin said the BoT had not anointed any aspirant or candidate and that the board was ready to work with whoever emerged as the chairman of the party.

“I want to assure our party members that whoever emerges as National Chairman, the BoT is ready to cooperate and work with him or her for the progress of the party. I will like to reiterate our position that the BoT has not anointed any candidates for now,” he said. He commended the Judiciary for saving Nigeria’s democracy by putting an end to the crisis in the party. (NAN)
