PDP Elders To Atiku: Forget Past Unfair Treatment, Return

BY ANDY ASEMOTA, Katsina

The Katsina State People’s Democratic Party (PDP) Elders’ Consultative Forum yesterday implored former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, to forgive former elements within the PDP, who forced him “to seek further political relevance and justice in alternative political enclaves” and return for  “a successful rebirth of the PDP.”

The elders rose from their meeting in Katsina with a resolution to canvass for the return of Atiku they hailed as “political son” of Katsina State, who has made indelible contributions to the foundation and development of the PDP.”

The statement signed by forum chairman, Hussaini Dambo, read in parts:

“Nigerians will surely wish to continue to receive the tremendous benefits from his versatile political experiences, his humility, his industrial prowess which has benefited millions of Nigerians, his philanthropic disposition, his formidable bridge-building structures across Nigeria and Africa and his unfettered commitment and admiration for the PDP.”

According to the statement, “The history and defences given to the struggle to sustain democracy in Nigeria’s recent past cannot be adequately written without mention of the immense contributions of this great gentleman who was in the frontline against those who at one time or the other chose to truncate the noble path of sustainable democracy in our nation.”
