The leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party has given an indication that it will soon hold meetings with the aggrieved governors of the party who have defected to the opposition party, the All Progressives Congress.
Th National Chairman of the party, Adamu Mu’azu, gave this indication when the Governor of Jigawa State, Sule Lamido paid him a courtesy visit in Abuja on Wednesday.
The five governors that defected are Aliyu Wamakko(Sokoto), Rotimi Amaechi (Rivers), Abdulfatai Ahmed(Kwara), Murtala Nyako(Adamawa) and Rabiu Kwankwaso(Kano).
Two other governors, Lamido and the Governor of Niger State, Dr. Babangia Aliyu,who were part of the aggrieved governors group, however refused to leave the PDP.
Mu’azu, who was responding to a plea by Lamido that those who left the party did so in anger and should be brought back, said the party would soon constitute a reconciliation committee that would reconcile all its aggrieved members.
He said he and members of the National Working Committee of the party would sit down and look at all issues that he said were making the party’s membership to dwindle.
The former governor of Bauchi State appealed to members of the party to remain steadfast and committed, adding that this was the only way to tackle the problems facing the ruling party.
He said, “PDP made most of the people and we expect that whatever be the case, we should remain within and let us slog it out and let us correct the needful for us to move forward.
“With my colleagues and I in the PDP leadership, I want to assure you that we would look at everything that had passed that had led to our party to be reducing in number and in size and we will address this.
“Whatever injustice that had been done we are going to correct it (and) we will be bold enough to say sorry to those that had been offended.”
