“ Well, I came here to reconcile with the governor on party affairs and how we can ensure that there is unity and stability in the party,” 

“ So, that we can take over government in 2023. I believe that Nigerians can’t wait for 2023 to come, so that PDP will return.”

“ I think he (Wike) is the topmost governor we have in the party. There is no doubt about that in terms of projects, youths and employment, in terms of security. Yes, we have security challenges all over the country,” the former vice president stated.

He expressed worry over the high level of insecurity and economic hardship in the country under president  Muhammadu Buhari led administration. 

He added that the PDP will come up with policies to rescue the country.

“ I have never seen it (insecurity) this bad. I am 70 years plus, I have never seen it this bad in terms of security challenges, in terms of economy, in terms of unemployment. This is the worst.

“ Why can’t you give us time. We will come up with our policies. We will present them to Nigerians when the time comes. 

“ We have done that before. Under PDP, we recorded the highest economic growth, the best foreign reserves, we reduced unemployment. You know that we can do it?”
