Senator Iyorcha Ayu has boasted that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is on its way back to power come 2023.
He said this after his emergence as the National Chairman of the PDP in Abuna on Saturday.
Ayu, a former Senate President, assured delegates at the party’s National convention that the main opposition party would take over Nigeria and develop it.
According to him, “I want to sincerely appreciate the PDP family. Today is simply a thank you address.
“When we started this party 23 years ago, we never in any way imagined that the journey would get us to this stage.
“A stage where we ruled for 16 years, we went into rough times, but for anybody who bothers to see, PDP is back.
“I want to appreciate all of you who have taken time as delegates, as observers, as supporters, as members of the media, as members of the security services who have made this event such a wonderful one.
“Many people imagine that this convention will lead to the break up of PDP. Those people who are dreaming like that, their dreams were misplaced.
“Those who have lost hope should know that Nigeria is not a divided country. Instead, a small group of people decided to divide Nigeria.
“PDP will come back to unite our people, put them together, north and south, east and west.
“We will move ahead to develop this country. We did it before. We are going to do it again.
