A former Senator, Ahmed Aruwa, has urged Nigerians not to write-off the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in spite of the massive loss it suffered in the last general election.
Aruwa, who also lost in his bid for the Senate during the election, said the PDP still has the muscle to retake power from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in 2019.
“That APC defeated our party in the 2015 elections in the state and federal levels is not enough grounds to write-off the party”.
The senator told newsmen after a meeting of the party’s stakeholders in Kaduna State that the PDP would continue to remain relevant and organised in spite of the defeat.
“Our members are also working assiduously to achieve the established goal of a formidable opposition party”.
According to him, the PDP still has hybrid leaders with requisite experience to provide Nigerians with a more focused leadership.
He also said that the party was strengthening its structures to maintain its large number of supporters and attract more, ahead of the 2019 elections.
Aruwa therefore urged members of the PDP nationwide to work closely to facilitate the party’s rejuvenation in order to reclaim power at all levels in 2019.
