Coming to terms with the reality of the exit of four of the seven aggrieved governors and some other leaders of the Alhaji Abubakar Kawu Baraje faction, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Chairman, Alhaji Bamanga Tukur, yesterday held out the olive branch, urging them to return to the fold.

“There is always a limit to demonstration of anger. If anger can cause you to pack all your bags and loads and then move into the home of your arch opponents, that to me is an anger so misdirected and it is unfortunate,” he said while reacting to Tuesday morning’s merger of the New Peoples Democratic Party (nPDP) and the opposition All Progressives Congress (APC).

“We cannot ask anyone not to leave the party if he so decided. After all soldiers go, soldiers come. If anyone leaves the PDP, many more people will join, it happens every time. All the same, I seize this opportunity to say to others who want to remain to stay back and join the process of re-building and reforming PDP,” Tukur added in a statement.

Continuing, the embattled PDP Chairman stated: “I am currently in China to study some modern day models of development that China can offer on party organization and good governance. I have taken note of so many things here. We will adopt the good ones to complement the reform process that is ongoing in PDP.

“We cannot do it alone. We need the cooperation of the party and the cooperation of every member so that we can leave the primitive stage we always find ourselves and then link up with modernity.

“What we are saying is let us come together as a party to promote the transformation agenda of President Goodluck Jonathan who we elected to lead us in Nigeria.

“Let us put behind us those successions of crises and bickerings so that the President and leaders of the party could concentrate on governance and delivery of the dividends of democracy to all.”
