The national chairman of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, Ali Modu Sheriff, has expressed confidence that the party would regain its “lost glory”.
He said the strength of the party would be restored after members are reconciled.
Mr. Sheriff stated this on Wednesday in Akure, Ondo State, when he visited the state governor, Olusegun Mimiko.
He said he was in the state to discuss the party’s forthcoming convention in May with the governor.
According to him, the party would leave no stone unturned to bring back “its lost sheep”, and ensure victory in all future elections.
“Since I took the mantle of leadership of our great party, I have been working assiduously to make PDP a strong and united party once again.
“My efforts have been yielding positive results as evident in the level of success we have recorded in recent re-run elections in the country,” he said.
Responding, Mr. Mimiko, who is the chairman of PDP Governors’ Forum, expressed confidence in the ability of Mr. Sheriff to rebuild the party and reposition it for success in future elections.
He said that it was due to Mr. Sheriff’s efforts that the party won virtually all the re-run elections recently.
“I am sure that by the time we finished our convention in May this year, our great party will bounce back to reckoning and we will easily win all elections in the future,” Mr. Mimiko added.
