Two former ministers, Prof. Jerry Gana and Humphrey Abah alongside four others were formally reunited into the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) on Saturday.
Others that were formally readmitted at the Zonal Congress of the PDP which held in Makurdi, the Benue State capital are; Amb. Esther Audu, Hon. Adakole Ijogi and Amb. Bagudu Hillson.
Speaking on behalf of other members, Professor Gana who was one of the founding fathers of the party thanked the leaders of the party for readmitting them back into the party they were privileged to found.
He appreciated Senator David Mark and others who variously led the reconciliation delegation and described PDP as the party of purpose and a party that has all the potentials to be able to move the country forward.
“We are happy to be back,” Gana said and added that Nigerians rely on the PDP to rescue the country from the doom it is headed.
“We are happy to be back” adding that Nigerians expect the party to take over the governance of this country for good governance to ensure the peace and security of this country.
“I, therefore, urge the PDP to mobilise together and be united to rescue Nigeria and restore good governance, ensure the security of lives and property and instil confidence in the minds of all Nigerians.
While recalling that PDP before 2015, controlled five out of the six states in the North Central Gana lamented that as of today, the party is only in Benue State and stressed the need to reclaim all the other five states back into the PDP fold in the next elections.
“Now that we are back, we will do our best to remobilise, rebuild and reunite the party to take up the mantle of leadership come 2023,” Gana said.
