Governors elected on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) say they will reposition the party as a “viable” opposition.

The governors said this in a communique issued on Tuesday at the end of their meeting in Abuja.

The governors said the party must be a strong opposition to protect democracy.

“The meeting vowed to reposition and strengthen PDP as a viable opposition political party ready and willing to play its role as the vanguard of the Nigerian people for democracy, good governance and accountability,” the communique reads.

The leading opposition party has been facing internal wranglings which culminated in its defeat at the 2023 presidential election.

The governors said while the judgment of the supreme court has brought an end to the 2023 presidential election litigation, they have “faith and confidence” in the judiciary “to do justice” in other political cases before the courts.

“We are concerned that while the Supreme Court has laid down precedents on pre-election issues, PDP candidates in Plateau State are being disqualified on the same grounds,” the governors said.

“We urge the judiciary at the apex level to ensure that our jurisprudence is not distorted. We remain vigilant in the struggle for democracy and good governance in the country.”

On the economy, the PDP governors asked the federal government to urgently intervene to stabilise the naira, control inflation, stem the unemployment crisis, and bring succour to Nigerians.
