The Peoples Democratic Party Renaissances Group (PDPRG) has announced its desire to have former Vice President Atiku Abubakar return to the party, saying the party is already clearing the coast for him.
A statement by the group’s National Coordinator, Chyna Iwuanyanwu said time is ripe for Atiku and others who defected to other political parties to return to the PDP.
Iwuanyanwu explained that with the recent leadership tussle that nearly knocked out the PDP, party leaders had learnt their lessons and are now committed to returning the party to the vision and mission of its founding fathers.
“With the Olive branch being waved and the magnanimity of the present leadership of the PDP, the coast is being cleared for Atiku’s triumphant return.
“Vice President Atiku Abubakar has been in a political wilderness, in a strange land, cohabiting with strange bed fellows who are ideologically incompatible with his patriotic vision for Nigeria and his democratic antecedents and credentials,” he said.
Iwuanyanwu stated further that the group has resolved to lead a delegation to Atiku Abubakar and others who had left the party, to convince them to return and be part of the restructuring, rebranding and repositioning ahead of the 2019 general elections.
