Now that members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) can heave a sigh of relief that the Supreme Court has ended the protracted leadership crisis that rocked the party, Nigerians expect a virile and credible opposition that will put the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC on its toes.
The sacked National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Senator Ali Modu Sheriff, was absent at the party’s national caucus meeting held Monday night.
The meeting was held at the party’s national secretariat in Abuja.
Among those in attendance were: former President Goodluck Jonathan, Governors of Akwa Ibom State, Emmanuel Udom; Nyesom Wike (Rivers); Darius Ishaku (Taraba); Ifeanyi Okowa (Delta); former governors of Benue State, Gabriel Suswam; Ramalan Yero (Kaduna); Jonah Jang (Plateau); Godswill Akpabio (Akwa Ibom); former senate president, David Mark; former PDP national chairman, Ahmadu Ali, etc.
Jonathan called on stakeholders to rebuild the party, to reclaim power in 2019.
Deputy Senate President Ike Ekweremadu said God gave the PDP victory at the Supreme Court because “God has seen so much suffering in Nigeria that is why he gave us victory. So we are going to pursue the APC and take over.”
