PDP will reclaim power in Jigawa by 2019 - Sheriff

02 March 2016, 07:41

Abuja - National Chairman of People's Democratic Party (PDP), Senator Ali Modu Sheriff, has expressed optimism that the party will reclaim Jigawa in the 2019 general elections.

Sheriff said this while addressing a delegation of PDP mambers led by Alhaji Tukur Ganza, who paid him a solidarity visit in Abuja on Tuesday.

Sheriff said the party would do everything democratically possible to reclaim the state, which he said was PDP stronghold.

''We lost the election not because PDP was not strong in Jigawa, but it was the movement at that time ‎that caused it.

"Now, we have learnt from our mistakes. So, it is a matter of time. All the people who left our party in Jigawa will come back.

"The leadership of the PDP today will ensure that no one is lagging behind", Sheriff said.

Earlier, Ganza said the group’s visit was to support the emergence of Sheriff as PDP national chairman.

He said that the group believed in the capability of Sheriff to revive the party.
