THE board of trustees, BoT, of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has called on aggrieved members who left the party to follow the footsteps of former Vice President Abubakar Atiku “and return home.”
Senator Walid Jibrin, chairman of the board, made the call while briefing journalists on Wednesday in Abuja. He said: “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, Senator Bukola Saraki, Senator 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 December 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 contestant, saying the board was ready to work with whoever emerged victorious, assuring party members that the BoT is ready to cooperate and work with whoever emerges as national chairman for the progress of the party.
