Jerry Gana, a Nigerian scholar and politician has said Peoples Democratic Party is stronger than before with the current unity and reconciliatory moves by leaders of the PDP.

The ex-Minister for Information made this known in a recent visit to Accord party's leader, Senator Rasheed Ladoja.

He said: "All democrats have united. By saying we have crisis, you are kind of overstating the reality. 95 per cent of PDP leaders and members are together. All our governors, senators, House of Representatives members are together. Even in the non-PDP controlled states, 95 per cent of us are together. It is only one or two people like Senator Ali Modu Sheriff who are contending the leadership of the party with Senator Ahmed Makarfi. I have been in the PDP right from the start. The body of the PDP nationally is solid together."

Continuing, Jerry Gana said: "We are all together and very soon, we are trusting God that the Court of Appeal will give its judgment on the issue of leadership. There is already a High Court judgment which is in our favour. They have gone to appeal and the Appellate Court will soon give its verdict. I want to assure you that that judgment will be very clear and very fundamental.

"We in PDP are not only, as it were, redefining the party and making sure that within we are strong again, but also making sure that we take note of all the mistakes that have been made in the past and correct them and then reach out to any democrat who will like to come together with us because this country is such a huge asset and we can’t allow Nigeria to go to pieces.

"Nigeria must remain a solid democracy and this democracy must deliver development and the development must be for all Nigerians. But the way the All Progressives Congress (APC) government is doing it, I don’t have to say much because there is a lot to be desired.

"So, PDP is reaching out to all its friends and those who share the ideals of democracy and good governance for us to just again consider the issues fundamentally and then move forward together. That is the position," he disclosed.
