The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has begged Nigerians help it to regain power and push the All Progressives Congress (APC) “out of power”.
Governor Ahmadu Fintiri of Adamawa and chairman of the party’s convention committee made the call while welcoming delegates and party officials to its 2021 convention on Saturday in Abuja.
“We have to take back our country as we have always done. We have to save Nigeria; if we could force the country out of the clutches of the military, we can do this huge task.
“We can push the people who do not know the true definition of good governance and national coexistence out of power.
“This is a Nigeria rescue mission. This is the role PDP was invented to play. The 2021 national convention presents a starting point for the Nigeria rescue mission,’’ he said.
Mr Fintiri told the party’s delegates that the convention was a moment to take tangible decisions on the fate and direction of the party.
He said that 34 candidates indicated interests for various national positions in the party, out of which 28 were cleared, two withdrew voluntarily and four were disqualified.
He said that there are 21 positions to be contested for and a total of 3,600 delegates were to elect the officials to pilot the affairs of the party.
