Onyebuchi Ezigbo in Abuja
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Governors Forum has pledged to maintain their membership of the party notwithstanding the outcome of the leadership tussle at the Supreme Court.
The protracted leadership crisis in the PDP had pitted loyalists of two factional leaders, Senator Ali Modu Sheriff and Senator Ahmed Makarfi, against one other, leading to a lull in the once vibrant largest party in the country.
However, the state governors elected on the platform of the party met Thursday night in what looked like a reunion after a long period of estrangement to discuss the way forward.
Speaking on the outcome of the meeting, the Ekiti State Governor and the chairman of the forum, Mr. Ayo Fayose, said they have resolved to “remain confident, committed and loyal to the PDP believing that the party which is more democratic than any other in the country, will be united towards winning elections at all levels in 2019”.
“We are saying that we believe in the tomorrow of this party and we believe that this party will come together united for victory in 2019,” he said.
