 Nigeria’s main Opposition Peoples Democratic Party on Monday said it has put in place plans to sway defected members to return back of the party.

Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Ahmed Makarfi, said this while addressing journalists on how to reposition the party.

Markafi stated that the newly inaugurated reconciliation and discipline committee have recorded progress in this regard, adding that all the efforts were towards ensuring that the party forms a formidable force to defeat the APC in the 2019 general elections.

Speaking further, the PDP Chairman added that aside from wooing the foundation members of the party, the reconciliation committee was also mandated to extend its dragnet to other noted politicians in the APC and other party who are desirous to join the PDP.

“We (reconciliation and disciplinary committee) are happy they have started well. We will not be reporting their progress because their progress is our strength. People will see it when they will see it.

“The reconciliation committee is mandated to reconcile all aggrieved members since formation of the party, not only aggrieved members based on Makarfi/Sherriff squabbles. All aggrieved members of PDP since the PDP was put in place.”

Markafi also warned those spearheading anti-party activities to desist from such acts or face the wrath of PDP constitution. (TV360 Nigeria)
