By Jon Egie
Following the victory of Senator Ahmed Makarfi led Caretaker Committee of the PDP, the Delta State Commissioner for Information, Mr Patrick Ukah has appealed to all aggrieved mebers of the party who left for whatsoever reasons to return to the PDP as there is enough room in the party to accommodate everybody.
The Information Commissioner made the appeal while reacting to the Wednesday, July 12 verdict of the Supreme Court that sacked Alhaji Modu Sheriff as Chairman of the party.
While congratulating all party members on the victory, Mr. Ukah stated that what happened in the party was not entirely out of place as it is a manifestation of the beauty of democracy.
The Commissioner expressed optimism that the party is poised to reposition itself aimed at reclaiming the mandate it lost to the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the 2015 presidential election, now that all legal matters affecting the party have been resolved.
He noted that even within immediate families there are disagreements which are settled one way or the other and at the end, an amicable resolution is found and the bond in the family becomes stronger.
Mr. Ukah, has said that the Supreme Court recognition of the Senator Ahmed Makarfi-led Caretaker Committee of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) was the tonic the party needed to re-strategize towards winning the 2019 presidential election.
