Governors of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) states have converged in Uyo, the Akwa Ibom State capital, to strategize on how to recover power from the All Progressives Congress in the 2023 general elections.
Jameela News reports that the Chairman of the PDP Governors Forum and Governor of Sokoto State, Aminu Tambuwal, made the pledge at a state banquet, organized by the Akwa-Ibom State government.
Mr. Tambuwal said the PDP governors would not disappoint Nigerians who are looking up to them to actualize their yearnings for the party to return to power in 2023.
“These star-studded leaders of PDP governors in their respective states and political generals are determined by the grace of God through your prayers, support, and cooperation, to rescue Nigeria,” Mr. Tambuwal said.
“It is a task that we must accomplish to the glory of God and his glory alone.
“God on our side, we are determined as leaders, to provide that platform for the emergence of another PDP leadership in this country, come 2023.”
He urged all citizens, especially religious leaders, to continue to pray for the country, especially over the security issues in the country.
“We need prayers. God is always there for His people and will never be tired of Nigeria for His glory,” the governor added.
Gov. Emmanuel Udom, welcoming the PDP governors to the state, told them that their people did not make mistakes in electing them to represent them.
Mr. Udom welcomed the PDP governors and described them as leaders with characters and charisma.
Emmanuel Enoidem, representing the PDP National Working Committee (NWC), said the PDP governors are making the party proud with their performances in their respective states.
“Today, if there is any hope of democracy in Nigeria, it has come from the PDP governors because of their excellent performance in their states,” he said.
Mr. Enoidem advised the PDP governors to sustain those efforts to foster development in Nigeria.
He said that although the responsibilities ahead are quite much, they must continue to work together to rise to the challenges facing the country.
PDP governors at the event were those of Akwa Ibom, Adamawa, Delta, Enugu, Rivers, Taraba, Sokoto, Bayelsa, Edo, and the deputy governor of Zamafara State.
