President Goodluck Jonathan on Thursday said decamping from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to other parties will return with empty stomach.
He stated this while receiving the PDP campaign report from its Director General, Ahmadu Ali at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
Despite the loss of the party at the presidential election, the president said, PDP is the dominant party.
According to him, PDP will remain strong in subsequent elections if members are committed and hard working.
The Chairman of the PDP Board of Trustees, Chief Tony Anenih noted that the party did not win the presidential election but won peace for the country.
He said: “We didn’t win the elections but we have a leader who made us to win peace. Without peace there cannot be development.”
“There is a lot to be done. We need a very strong and vibrant party to be put in place now. I believe we are on the right path. Let us put behind us those who have betrayed the party and move forward.”
