PDP judgement: Deputy Senate President says it’s a new dawn

The Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, says the Supreme Court judgment on the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, leadership crisis, ushers in a new dawn of peace, reconciliation and recovery for the party.

Reacting to the court’s verdict on Wednesday, Senator Ekweremadu said it was a no victor and no vanquished situation for individual party members and a collective victory for the entire party, as well as the nation’s democracy.

“The PDP has been too distracted to keep them (governing party) on its toes but it is heartwarming that calm is returning after the storm. I salute millions of our party members and Nigerians who stood firm to weather the storm, for their courage and loyalty and sincerely appeal to those who left for one reason or the other to return to our big political family.

“Importantly, I call on our party leadership and elders to immediately initiate an all-inclusive peace, reconciliation, and rebuilding process to reunite everybody under the big umbrella and reinvigorate the biggest party in Africa to bounce back to the rescue of the suffering masses of Nigeria come 2019,”Ekweremadu said.
