The national Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Adamu Mu’azu on Saturday  made passionate plead to the former five PDP governors now in All Progressive Congress to come back to the ruling party.

He made the appeal during the north central solidarity and unity rally of the ruling party in Minna, the Niger State capital.

Pleading to the former governors, the PDP chairman said, “We are willing to welcome them back home and I can assure them that they will be treated equally. Please come back home”.

Mu’azu also directed the Chairman of Northern States Governors Forum and Niger State governor, Dr. Mu’azu Babangida Aliyu to ensure that all the five governors that defected to the opposition party return back to the ruling party.

According to the Chairman, “if the Niger state governor as the leader of the G7 and Jigawa State governor can remain in the party, I call on Gov. Aliyu to ensure the return of the other five PDP governors who went to APC.

“Gov. Aliyu saw the light at the end of the tunnel and stayed, your job has not finished, go back and make sure your people (G5) see the light and get them to come back home to PDP,” Mu’azu directed.

He said the party is better re-positioned to meet the yearning of the electorates and commended them for voting the party to power since 1999 and promised that the country should expect more goodies from.

President Goodluck Jonathan in his address  described the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as the only stable and democratic political party in the continent of Africa.

Jonathan said that the party since inception has remained constant and focused in the delivery of its mandate to the people of the country.

He said that the consistency of the party has made it the popular not only in the country but beyond the chores of the country and the continent.

According to the President, “Since inception PDP has remained the same. We have not changed our name, we have not changed our slogan, we have not changed our logo, we have not changed our colour. We have remained stable. In fact we are the most stable and democratic party in Nigeria and in Africa”.

Though Jonathan and Niger State governor claimed that the rally was not to campaign for 2015, virtually all the speakers at the rally took turn to assure the President of their support for his re-election bid.

Party Chieftains from north central led by the Senate President, David Mark and the party’s national vice chairman, Yusuf Ayetogun assured the President of  victory at the polls come 2015.
