Former Governor of Niger State, Dr. Muazu Babangida Aliyu, has declared that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), with the support of Nigerians, will unseat the government of President Muhammadu Buhari in 2019.
He said this at a ‘Unity Rally’ organised by the party in Agaie/Lapai Local Government Area of the State.
At the event, over 600 members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) defected to the PDP.
“We will resist any form of intimidation put on our way to reclaiming power at all levels of governance in the country,” the PDP chieftain said.
Babangida disclosed that a committee had been put in place to ensure victory for the PDP in 2019 general election.
The former governor warned the party faithful against cross-carpeting after primaries, saying those who remained, despite pains and humiliation, would be applauded and compensated.
PDP state chairman, Alhaji Tanko Beji, apologised for past mistakes of the party which foisted the APC on the people of the state.
“We have learnt our lessons and are ready to correct them. PDP will definitely return to winning ways”, he said.
Beji urged the party supporters to obtain their voter cards to enable them vote in the 2019 elections.
