The Newly appointed chairman of the PDP Governors’ Forum and Sokoto State Governor Aminu Waziri Tambuwal has pledged to unite aggrieved members and reposition the party ahead of future polls. He further expressed the governors’ readiness to boost membership and strengthen the party in every state.
He said: “I assure you, my brothers and indeed the party, that by the grace of God, we shall work together to continue to strengthen our party and deepen democracy in Nigeria. Let me thank our party members especially those at the grassroots level for your support, cooperation and encouragement when, last week, we went through very harrowing and challenging experiences at the tribunal and in particular, at the Supreme Court.
“Your support through press statements, through interventions and the rallies held across the country helped in ensuring that what was masterminded by losers hell-bent on making Nigeria a one party state was stopped. I assure you that your support will not be in vain.”
He added: “We assure you, as your governors, that we shall continue to work together in unity and with the NWC in ensuring that the programmes of the party, especially in our respective states, in line with our manifestoes, are implemented. And we shall also continue to support the party in its drive for membership and development.”
According to Tambuwal, members of the forum would “soon begin to institutionalise a peer review mechanism where we shall be comparing notes as governors of the PDP with a common agenda, a common programme in ensuring that we have all of that implemented across our states.
