While welcoming the defectors, Okowa declared that the PDP was making wise efforts to rescue Nigeria from its current security challenges.
He added that Atiku Abubakar possesses the skills and knowledge needed to address the nation’s many problems.
He declared, “Atiku is the man to take Nigeria out of its present stage, as a result our country of tomorrow needs everyone in the PDP’s struggle.”
Sokoto State Governor Aminu Tambuwal expressed joy over the defectors’ acceptance to the PDP in the State.
You’re all going home today, I see. I’m pleased that all of you are content with and convinced of the PDP leadership in Sokoto and Nigeria, he said.
Atiku and Okowa, according to Tambuwal, are genuine nationalists who are passionate about Nigeria’s economic growth. Together, they will provide the country with the effective leadership it needs.
