A former governor of Niger State, Babangida Aliyu, has warned the Peoples Democratic Party to avoid repeating the mistakes of the past which led to its defeat in the 2015 elections.
The former governor predicted that many members of the party would either retire from partisan politics or leave the PDP if it fails in its bid to return to power at the national level.
Aliyu gave this warning while addressing the National PDP Professionals and Business Group during its 4th National Convention/Election, in Abuja, on Monday.
He said, “As professionals and business people, you must help our party to win the forthcoming election. I have said if we do not win 2023, many of us will say bye bye to politics, many will say bye bye to PDP and indeed, many people will find their way out of PDP. So, we need to do what it takes to win the election in 2023.”
The former governor described recent developments within the party as worrisome. He said, “You must be ready to play a major role that will lead to the recovery of our mandate from the government in power come 2023.”
