Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Board of Trustees, Senator Walid Jibrin, has called on aggrieved members who left the party to follow the footsteps of former Vice President Abubakar Atiku “and return home”.
Jibrin 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, 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 December 9 Convention, Jibrin insisted that the BoT had not anointed any candidate, saying the board was ready to work with whoever emerged victorious.
“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.
