The Peoples Democratic Party PDP, says it would soon receive back to its fold some of its high profile members that defected to other parties. Delta state governor, Ifeanyi Okowa, said this while inspecting the Eagles Square, venue for party’s upcoming Convention. Okowa is part of the party’s planning committee for its convention.
“We are doing very well as a party and as a committee. In this kind of planning, you will have some challenges here and there but there are solutions being proffered for everyone of it and we are confident that we are on the right track and it shall be well on Saturday. This is a new PDP and with the excitement we saw after the supreme court victory, we did see amongst Nigerians and not only PDP followers, I believe that a lot of people who thought that the party was going to implode by itself will realise that we are back alive and ready to offer what it takes to better the lives of Nigerians. Many of our members that left earlier due to one form of disagreement or the other will return back to their party because the National Caretaker Committee has constituted a Reconciliation Committee as well as a Contact and Mobilization Committee to reach out to them. From the way things are going presently in this country, I believe Nigerians will realise that PDP is the only alternative that can bring Nigeria out of her present economic challenges,” he said
He, however, did not mention the names of some of its defected members that are being expected back to the party.
