Former Governor of Niger State, Mu’azu Babangida Aliyu, has appealed to Nigerians to give the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) another chance to fix the country in the 2023 elections.
Speaking during a programme on Tuesday in Minna, the state capital, Aliyu urged Nigerians to give PDP a second chance to take Nigeria out of the hole the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has kept the country.
He opined that the PDP is the only party that can return the country to its strides of purposeful progress, development, and national integration.
Aliyu, a member of the party’s National Executive Committee (NEC), said the APC has inflicted pains on Nigerians as a result of its bad policy, bad governance, and maladministration.
He said: “Nigerians have seen and tasted the differences between what the PDP offered and what we have got in the last six years. We were ungrateful to God over what He gave us through the PDP and we opted for what everyone of us is now crying and lamenting over.”
Aliyu noted that the PDP leadership is doing its best to resolve all misunderstandings amongst members and ensure a stronger party ahead of the 2023 elections.
The former governor revealed that the party’s National Reconciliation Committee headed by former Senate President, Bukola Saraki, had been working to address all issues that affected the unity amongst party members.
He hinted that the Saraki-led committee is replicated in state chapters where reconciliation, restrategising, and rebuilding of the party are in progress to make it stronger and better.
Aliyu noted that PDP remains the best and well organised political movement in Nigeria even as the leadership of the party is determined to ensure that the party will not misuse its chances again.
