PDP remains the only party that can lead the country to greater heights - GEJ

Despite recent defection of party members from the People's Demcratic Party (PDP) to the All Progressive Congress (APC), President Goodluck Jonathan, Saturday said the PDP is still strong and stable.

While ddressing a mamoth crowd of party supporters shortly after receiving former Sokoto governor, Attahiru Bafarawa - who defected to PDP with his supporters from APC - at Kangiwa Square, Sokoto, the President added that the party would remain unshaken despite the recent defections of some members to other parties.

He also reaffirmed the commitment of the Federal Government to liberate Nigerians through education, especially with the Almajiri programme.

Jonathan maintained that the PDP remained the only party that could lead the country to greater heights.

The Sokoto State Deputy Governor, Alhaji Mukhtari Shagari, said PDP was the most organised, disciplined and resourceful party in Nigeria.

“The achievements of the PDP in the state and Nigeria generally speak for themselves.

“The president loves Nigeria and he has demonstrated this love in many ways,” Shagari said.

Bafarawa said that he defected to PDP, following the decision of his supporters and promised that Sokoto State would be delivered to PDP at all levels in 2015.

“We will work to ensure the success of the party. We joined the PDP based on principle, to build democracy and Nigeria,” Bafarawa, said.
