Former President Goodluck Jonathan has urged the leaders of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to focus on rebuilding the party.
The former President made the appeal on Monday during the party’s expanded caucus meeting at the PDP national secretariat in Abuja.
He asked the leaders to put behind the division which the leadership tussle in the party might have caused and focus on the party structures that were almost destroyed during the crisis.
The Chairman of the PDP Governors Forum, Ayodele Fayose, also appealed to members to go back to their states and regain the confidence of their constituencies ahead of the 2019 general elections.
Those in attendant are former national chairmen of the party – Vincent Ogbulafor and Amadu Ali – as well as former Senate President David Mark, Deputy Senate President Ike Ekweremadu as well as present and former governors.
Former PDP National Chairman Ali Modu Sheriff and his supporters were however absent from the meeting.
This is the first of such meeting that the party is holding since the last 13 months of protracted legal battle that threatened the foundation of the party.
The battle ended on Wednesday, July 12 when the Supreme Court declared the Ahmed Makarfi Caretaker Committee of the PDP as validly constituted.
