2019!!! Pressure Mounts From Several Quarters As Bukola Saraki, Rabiu Kwankwaso, Others, ‘Eye’ PDP, Take Final Decision

Emerging report indicates that there is pressure on the likes of the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, and former Kano State Governor, Rabiu Kwankwaso, others, to stop ‘eyeing’ the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, from afar, but rather join the opposition party ahead of 2019.

This came to the front burner on Wednesday, as PDP’s Board of Trustees, BoT, called on aggrieved members who left the party, to follow the footsteps of former Vice President, Abubakar Atiku, “and return home”.

The Chairman of the Board, Walid Jibrin, made the call while briefing Journalists, on Wednesday, in Abuja.

Recall, that Saraki and Kwankwaso had earlier released separate statements, saying that they have taken their final decision to remain members of the APC. Their Aides had in different fora shut down the idea of decamping to the PDP.

While speaking, Jibril said: “As the party joyfully welcomes Atiku back to his home, PDP, we are equally waiting to receive more members.

“We are waiting for the President of the Senate, Sen. Bukola Saraki, Sen, Rabiu Kwankwaso, other Senators, Members of House of Representatives, and APC Governors who left the PDP.

“Let all of us unite and take back power from APC come 2019.”

Ahead of the December 9 PDP Convention, Jibrin urged aspirants to develop the spirit of sportsmanship.

He urged aspirants to accept the verdict of delegates, cooperate with the winners, and remain loyal to the party, as power comes from God.

Jibrin further disclosed that the BoT had not anointed any contestant, saying the Board was ready to work with whoever emerged victoriously.

“I want to assure our party members that whoever emerges as National Chairman, the BoT is ready to cooperate and work with him or her for the progress of the party.

“I will like to reiterate our position, that the BoT has not anointed any candidates for now”, he said.

He commended the Judiciary for saving Nigeria’s democracy, by putting an end to the crisis in the party.
