He has started consulting aggrieved members of the party and discussing ways to team up with them.
To meet this, one of the major plan is to fuse some members of the defunct All Nigerian Peoples Party (ANPP) which Ibrahim and factional National Chairman of PDP, Ali Modu Sheriff originally belonged, as well as attract members of the Accord Party (AP)
This is Ibrahim second shot at the governorship.
He had earlier contested for the governorship under the ANPP in 2003.
