gabriel_suswamGovernor Gabriel Suswam of Benue State has urged his colleague in Niger State, Dr. Mu’azu Babangida Aliyu, to retrace his steps back to the mainstream Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP).

“You cannot build a house and run away from it leaving your family. Where there is trouble, you stay back and tackle the trouble, so Governor Aliyu should come back and tackle the problem”, he was quoted as saying.

Gov. Suswam, who made this known when he received the party’s North-central executive committee led by its chairman, Yusuf Tyongo, at the Government House in Makurdi.

Gov. Aliyu is one of seven governors that pitched their tent in the Abubakar Kawu Baraje led faction of the PDP known as “New PDP” following what they considered the “hijack” of the ruling party by Alhaji Bamanga Tukur with tacit support of the presidency.

But the Benue State governor expressed optimism that very soon, Aliyu, who doubles as the chairman of the Northern States Governors Forum, would return to where “he rightly belongs” because there is nothing like a new PDP.
