ASABA-ONE-TIME Delta State Governorship aspirant under the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Chief Sunny Onuesoke has called on the Senate President, Senator Bukola Saraki and Alhaji Abubakar Atiku and others who left the Party for one reason or the other to return to their home, the PDP.
Onuesoke who made the call when he played host to members of the Niger Delta Youths For Peace, NDYP at the International Headquarters of Onuesoke Foundation in Warri, said “Atiku, Saraki and other founding fathers of our great Party worked assiduously hard to position the party and make it the biggest political party in Africa.
“The new rebranded PDP is wide enough to accommodate everybody. I’m happy former Governor Ladoja of Oyo State is back to the party. Others like Atiku, Senate President Bukola Saraki, Ita-Giwa, should consider and take that bold decision too.
“The leadership of the Party is working round the clock to woo more members to its fold. We wont relent in our membership drive until all those that left the Party prior to the 2015 general elections are brought back.
“In life every man needs a decision to change his destiny. PDP has taken this decision of wooing back our members, come 2019, we will take what rightly belongs to us. APC is living on borrowed members. 80% of those in APC today are members of our great party.”
On Aisha Alhassan (Mama Taraba) statement that she would support Atiku if President Buhari contests the 2019 general elections, Onuesoke said: the Minister of Women merely stated the obvious.
“Nigerians are fed up with this APC led federal Government. Mama Taraba just stated the obvious fact. Those criticising her are mere sycophants. Some Nigerians hate to be told the truth but that will not stop or deter us from talking.
“It takes Courage to stand on the path of Truth. I admire her boldness and honesty.” Earlier in his remarks, the National President of NDYP, Comrade Presibe Timimaye said “Onuesoke is a Voice, not only in the Niger Delta region but Nigeria as a whole.
“We have come to identify with you today Sir. As a voice in Nigeria politics, You remain a role model to the Youths. You are a voice to the voiceless. The pride of Urhobo Nation”.
