The national leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP) has called on Senate President Bukola Saraki, former Governor of Kano State, Sen. Rabiu Kwankwaso, and other former leaders of the party who left for other parties to return.

The Chairman of the PDP Board of Trustees (BoT), Senator Walid Jibrin, noted that the party had gone through trials leading to mass exodus of key members, including former governors among others.

He stated this on Tuesday when he received members of “PDP Ward2Ward Group” who paid him a courtesy visit in Abuja stressing that the party was working to present the best presidential candidate from the North in 2019.

The PDP chieftain said the party’s leadership in the North had already put in place machinery to ensure the emergence of the best presidential candidate from the area in 2019.

“All of us as a party have agreed that the President of Nigeria should come from the North in 2019. I enjoin you to support the North to bring and give us capable presidential candidate. We are all doing what we can in the North with all the leaders to identify who is the best candidate to rule this country.

“The best person that will take power from the ruling party in 2019 is our own, 2019 is for the PDP.”

He disclosed that the BoT had set up a committee to reconcile board members who were aggrieved by the outcome of the December 2017 National Convention.

Jubrin said that the mandate of the committee was to resolve issues arising from the emergence of Prince Uche Secondus as PDP National Chairman.

He added that the work of the committee, headed by former Senate President, Sen. David Mark, would be limited to BoT members only, while Gov. Seriake Dickson of Bayelsa led-reconciliation committee would reach out to other party members.

He, however, said that following the Supreme Court judgment on the party’s leadership tussle, stability had returned, while many members who left were beginning to return.

One of the returnees, he said, was former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, “who brought good omen to PDP.

“We are also expecting the return of some of our former governors, National Assembly members and very renowned party followers. When this is done, the party will come to its stable stand.

“We should encourage anybody who has left us to come back and reunite with us, we will not hate or deprive anybody, it is a good omen for the party that we should receive people coming back.

“We are therefore calling on Saraki, Kwankwaso, and all our former legislators who left the party to come back quickly.”

The National Coordinator of the PDP Ward2Ward Group, Mrs Ada Okwori, said the group was working toward returning PDP to power in 2019.

“As a result of that, we tasked ourselves to make sure that we mobilise for PDP throughout the country.

“In the 36 states of the federation, we have coordinators, we have ward coordinators, youth mobilisers and women mobilisers, among others.”
