State governors under the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) are currently meeting on Uyo, the Akwa Ibom State capital, to map out strategies on how to dethrone the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in the 2023 general elections.
In the three-day meeting which began on Sunday, the governors pledged to provide the needed platform for the party to return to power at the federal level in 2023.
The Chairman of the forum and Governor of Sokoto State, Aminu Tambuwal, made the pledge at a state banquet, organised by the Akwa-lbom State government, ahead of the forum meeting in Uyo.
Tambuwal said the PDP governors would not disappoint Nigerians who are looking up to them to actualise their yearnings for the party to return to power in 2023.
“These star-studded leaders of PDP governors in their respective states and political generals are determined by the grace of God through your prayers, support and cooperation, to rescue Nigeria,” he said, adding “It is a task that we must accomplish to the glory of God and his glory alone.
“God on our side, we are determined as leaders, to provide that platform for the emergence of another PDP leadership in this country, come 2023,” even as he urged all citizens, especially religious leaders, to continue to pray for the country, especially over the security situation in the country.
“We need prayers. God is always there for His people and will never be tired of Nigeria for His glory,” the governor added.
Earlier in his remarks, Akwa Ibom State Governor, Emmanuel Udom, welcoming the PDP governors to the state, told them that their people did not make mistakes in electing them to represent them.
Udom described the PDP governors as leaders with characters and charisma.
The PDP National Legal Adviser, Emmanuel Enoidem, speaking on behalf of the PDP National Working Committee (NWC), said the PDP governors are making the party proud with their performances in their respective states.
