According to NAN, the event took place at the Government Technical College playground in Ogoja.
It was part of the grand reception for Senator Jarigbe Agom of Cross River North.
PDP Chairman Venatius Ikem stated that the return of former members and the addition of new members will improve the party's chances in future elections.
The new members and returnees came from Ogoja Yala, Obanliku, Obudu, and Bekwara.
Dr. Peter Oti, the former Special Adviser to former Governor Liyel Imoke on Budget, was among them.
"Since the time of former Senate President Joseph Wayas, Cross River North has never seen such a large crowd."
"I can confidently state that Cross River North has never produced a Senator as well-liked as Jarigbe Agom," he said.
Agom was appointed Vice Chairman of the Committee on Foreign Affairs by Senate President Ahmad Lawan a fortnight ago.
After six months of legal wrangling, the lawmaker was finally sworn in in September.
In July, the Calabar Court of Appeal declared him the winner of the Senatorial bye-election on December 5, 2020.
Senator Stephen Odey was removed by Hon. Justice Chioma, who also ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to issue a certificate of return to Agom.
