Senator Duoye Diri, Governor of Bayelsa State and Chairman of the state Congress of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has said Nigerians want the party back because they miss the sense of unity it typifies.

He said Nigeria needs such spirit of unity in government at the highest level, asserting, “Nigerians are tired. They are waiting for the PDP.”

The PDP in Adamawa State had adopted a consensus option by which nearly all members of the immediate past state exco were returned unopposed, paving the path to a tension-free election of the party executives.

The new executives of the PDP in Adamawa State as declared Saturday afternoon included Barr Ahmed Shehu (Chairman), Mr Stephen Donald (Deputy Chairman), Malam Idris Yahaya (Secretary), and Alhaji Hamza Bello (Organising Secretary).
