The Board of Trustees of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has called on members who left the party to follow the footsteps of former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar.
The Chairman of the Board, Walid Jibrin, made the call while speaking to journalists on Wednesday in Abuja.
He said: “As the party joyfully welcomes Atiku back to his home PDP, we are equally waiting to receive more members.
“We are waiting for the President of the Senate, Sen. Bukola Saraki, Sen, Rabiu Kwankwaso, other senators, members of House of Representatives and APC governors who left the PDP.
“Let all of us unite and take back power from APC come 2019.”
Ahead of the December 9 PDP convention, Jibrin urged aspirants to develop the spirit of sportsmanship.
“I want to assure our party members that whoever emerges as National Chairman, the BoT is ready to cooperate and work with him or her for the progress of the party,” he said.
“I will like to reiterate our position that the BoT has not anointed any candidates for now.”
