The Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) has praised the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, the Kwara State Governor, Abdulfatah Ahmed, and Nigerian Ambassador to South Africa, Ahmed Ibeto for returning to the party.
In a statement signed by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, 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 that the PDP is aware of the harassment and intimidation the duo of Senator Saraki and Governor Ahmed has suffered from the lords in the disintegrating All Progressives Congress (APC) which they helped to build and nurtured to win elections.
It added it has no doubts that Senator Saraki, Governor Ahmed and Alhaji Ibeto will contribute immensely to the new order that engender good governance in the nation.
The PDP then 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.
