The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has praised Senate President Bukola Saraki, Governor Abdulfatah Ahmed of Kwara State Governor, and Nigerian Ambassador to South Africa Ahmed Ibeto for returning to the party.
In a statement signed by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, on Tuesday, the PDP said the defection came at a time when “the nation requires the input of genuine patriots that will save it from an impending decline”.
It also said, “The PDP notes the harassment and intimidation that the duo of Senator Saraki and Governor Ahmed had suffered from the lords in the disintegrating All Progressives Congress (APC) which they helped to build and nurtured to win elections.
“Senator Saraki, in particular, has conducted the affairs of the Senate in reflection of the wishes of the silent majority of Nigerians and had emerged a hero of democracy”.
The PDP, therefore, said it “has no doubts that Senator Saraki, Governor Ahmed and Alhaji Ibeto will contribute immensely to the new order that engender good governance in our nation”.
The party assured all the returning members of all the rights and privileges accruable to every member.
Furthermore, the PDP called on all Nigerians who are desirous of rescuing the nation from what it described as “the incompetent administration of President Buhari”, to join them ahead of the 2019 elections.
