Members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) under the aegis of ‘PDP Frontliners’ have joined the league of those working to ensure the success of David Ombugadu as the next National Chairman of the party.

They said for the party to come out of its present malaise and reposition towards “values and vibrancy,” Ombugadu is the best option to take the party to the next level.

In a statement issued on Wednesday in Abuja, the group disclosed that concerned stakeholders had begun serious consultations towards making this a reality, adding that Ombugadu is being drafted into the race as a consensus candidate at both the North Central geo-political zone and national level.

The statement jointly signed by Alhaji Hussein Mohammed, Mr. Moses Abidemi and Mr. Dan Okafor, President, Secretary and Publicity Secretary, respectively said “PDP’s renewal of commitment to party values and the actualization of a much sought repositioning can be more ably actualized by David Ombugadu whose vibrant mobilization in Nasarawa state has given PDP the needed vibrancy and representation that includes nine seats in the state House of Assembly, leaving APC with ten and other parties with five.”

Part of the statement said, “in record time, Ombugadu who only narrowly lost the governorship election in Nasarawa, an APC state was able to unite PDP forces on ground to secure the position of Deputy Speaker in the state House of Assembly along with a Senatorial position despite the huge resources and power of incumbency deployed by the ruling APC.

“For PDP to move forward, it would be extremely necessary to shift focus beyond the struggle for dominance by intra-party camps and coalesce energies and capacities towards strategic repositioning that would lay the ground for PDP victory in 2027.

“With Hon Ombugadu, we have someone who has actively demonstrated the capacity to work with and inspire people of divergent roots and religious affiliations towards achieving maximum political impact in record time.

“As the entire leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) prepares for the party’s most crucial meetings and decisions since the 2023 general elections, various analyses undertaken by the PDP Frontliners’ research teams indicate that Ombugadu’s entry will gain rapid and effective support across various geo-political zones; we have started work, and we are more than sure of achieving a win-win dividend for all PDP stakeholders’ interests.”
