Ahead of the 2019 election, the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Adamawa State, has renewed its call for the return of former Vice-President, Atiku Abubakar to the party.
Chairman of the party, Shehu Tahir, said the call was predicated on the fact that he needs to continue where he stopped.
He made the call on Wednesday while addressing the party’s stakeholders during a meeting in Yola, the state capital.
Tahir noted that members who decamped to other political parties should return because the problem that led to the mass defection was over.
Tahir said: “ It is not a wise decision for Atiku to abandon the house he helped to build, so we want him back.
“We are calling on Atiku Abubakar, who is among the PDP founding fathers, not to abandon the house he had helped to build.
“This is because the party needs him now to continue from where he stopped.
“We urge our stakeholders to prevail on him and others who left to reconsider their decision and return to the party.”
