The party has also welcomed the Kano State Deputy Governor, Prof. Hafizu Abubakar and all other returning and new members of the party. In a statement by PDP’s National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, the party described Governor Tambuwal’s Wednesday’s quitting of APC as “courageous, patriotic and shows him as a statesman who puts the interest of the nation above all.”
According to the statement, “In welcoming Governor Tambuwal, the PDP notes that he had continued to conduct his activities in strict adherence to democratic principles both as former Speaker of the House of Representatives and executive governor of Sokoto state,” it said.
The statement also reads thus:
“The party therefore has no doubts that Governor Tambuwal will indeed contribute immensely towards the rebuilding of our dear nation on the platform of the PDP. The PDP states that the return of Governor Tambuwal, Senate President Bukola Saraki, Benue state Governor Samuel Ortom, Kwara state Governor Abdulfatah Ahmed and Kano State Deputy Governor, Prof. Hafizu Abubakar in addition to scores of federal legislators to the party, reflects the wishes and aspirations of Nigerians across board, who are now resurging to the repositioned PDP as the only vehicle to rescue our nation from the mis-governance of the APC.
The PDP notes that the coming weeks will witness the influx of more APC governors, federal legislators, other elected and appointed officials at very high levels, into the repositioned PDP. Finally, the party reassures all new and returning members of adequate accommodation in line with the principles of internal democracy being strictly adhered to by the rebranded PDP.”
