“PDP will return to power in 2019 because it is a conglomeration of Nigerians. PDP is a big party that has history and it is a party of conglomeration of all Nigerians across divides,” he said.

“This is not our first crisis; if you go down our history from the formation of the party, you will notice that this is not the first time we are having crisis.

“You can remember that the late Sunday Awoniyi had battle of leadership with former Chairman Barnabas Gemade. We also had crisis during Audu Ogbeh’s reign. You don’t fight for what is not in existence. PDP was in power for 16 years and the crisis and fight had always been with us,” he added.

The PDP has been in crisis since the removal of Ali Modu Sheriff from the position of chairman on May 21.
