I’ll Continue To Serve And Work For PDP, Says Tukur

Tukur-ResignImmediate past National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Bamanga Tukur has restated his commitment to the success of the party.

Tukur, who was forced to step down as chairman of the party last month, said he would continue to work towards the progress and development of the party, regardless of the fact that he is no longer at the helm of affairs of the ruling party.

The former party chairman made this known on Monday when he received a pressure group within the PDP known as the National Consolidated Group (NCG) at his Abuja residence.

Describing the PDP as the “only reliable platform” to serve Nigeria better, Tukur once more launched a passionate appeal to the five governors and others who defected from the PDP to the All Progressives Congress (APC) to have a rethink and retrace their steps.

He said, “The PDP is solid, intact and united as ever. This is evidenced by the influx of politicians to the PDP. Many more politicians, men and women of goodwill will still join the party.

“Truly, the PDP is the party to beat. I enjoin all members of PDP family who have defected to other parties to have a rethink and return to the fold of the PDP.

“I call on you and indeed all Nigerians to vote massively for the PDP in future elections and support the PDP as the party is a united political family. I urge you people to work for PDP and ensure that there is peace and harmonious existence in the party.

“I will also continue to serve the PDP and work for the party, for in the PDP lies the greatest hope for a united, peaceful and prosperous Nigeria”.

He, however, failed to acknowledge the shooting of protesters by soldiers of the Nigerian Army at the Lekki Toll Gate on Tuesday night.
