A former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, on Friday declared that the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, needs all those who returned back into the party to fight President Muhammadu Buhari in 2019
Fani-Kayode said PDP also needs those loyal to the party to team up with those who just returned, ahead of 2019.
He said this while urging PDP to learn from the story of King Agamemnon of Greece, who joined forces with the Achilles to defeat the Army of the Greeks.
In a tweet, Fani-Kayode wrote: “King Agamemnon of Greece was vain, proud and arrogant. He attacked Troy without the great Achilles and predictably he failed to succeed.
“It was only after Achilles rejoined the army and led the assault on Troy that the Greeks took the city and won the war.
“@OfficialPDPNig must learn from this. We need ALL those that have just returned to our ranks to fight the battle that lies ahead.
“We also need ALL those that never left and that have spent the last 3 years gallantly fighting Buhari. Together we shall take back Aso Rock.”
In the past few weeks, prominent personalities like the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, former Governor of Kano State, Rabiu Kwankwaso among others had defected from the All Progressives Congress, APC, to PDP.
Also, the Governor of Sokoto State, Aminu Tambuwal defected from APC to the PDP.
