The National Youth League of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has reacted to the reported defection of Prof. Jerry Gana, Tunde Adediran, Alhaji Shehu Gabam and others from the PDP to the Social Democratic Party, SDP.
The news of defection of the PDP elders hit the Nigerian media on Saturday morning.
“It is our candid opinion that the least expected of people that have had so much gains from the party is to join hands with the indefatigable leadership of our great party led by Prince Uche Secondus and his team of National Working Committee to rebuild the party for greatness, reposition it and Regain every lost ground.
“While we mourn the exit of the aforementioned leaders from the party, it is our candid belief that the PDP National Youth League will not be broken.
“The PDPNYL shall continue to reach out to and galvanize young Nigerians into our great party to ensure maximum support of the youths ahead of 2019 election.
“Though we believe that the PDP is the only party that can resoundingly defeat the ruling All Progressive Congress in 2019 and beyond, we wish the aforementioned leaders well in their new found party.”
