PDP continues comeback strategy, meets with Jonathan, Tukur

Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Strategy Review Committee headed by Prof Jerry Gana on Monday visited former President Goodluck Jonathan and the former national chairman of the party, Bamanga Tukur in their different residences in Abuja.

The visit was revealed in a post on the party’s official Twitter account, stating that the purpose of the meeting was to present a copy of the Strategy Review and Inter Party Affairs report to them.

The committee, set up by Senator Ahmed Makarfi-led National Working Committee of the party, was upon inauguration mandated to review the affairs of the party and proffer recommendations for its rebuilding process.

The tweets read, “Happening now, the members of the Strategy Review Committee are meeting with the former President, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan at his residence, Abuja.

“The committee was at the residence of the former President to present the report to Dr. Goodluck Jonathan, GCFR.

“The delegation is now at the residence of the former National Chairman, Dr. Bamanga Tukur to submit the report of the Strategy Committee.

“The delegation is leaving Dr. Bamanga Tukur residence, will proceed to Minna to meet with former Head of State. Gen. Ibrahim Babangida.

“The meeting with the former Head of State, Gen. Babangida is put off to a later date. The Committee is now heading to Chief Anenih’s house.”

The PDP, which was in power for 16 years from 1999 when Nigeria returned to democratic governance, has been a shadow of itself since losing power to the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the 2015 presidential elections.

Some of the problems of the party which preceded 2015 election and the present leadership tussle between senators Ahmed Makarfi and Ali Modu Sheriff, have continued to threaten the party’s strength and ability to become a viable party once again.
