PDP acting national chairman, Umar Damagun, reminded the party members that as an opposition, they need to work together as one family.

“I want to reiterate, on the issue of the national assembly, we have to know we are an opposition. In order to remain relevant, we must work together as one family.

“That is the only way you will be able to ensure that your relevance is being determined,” Damagun stated.

Presidential candidate of PDP in the February 25 election, Atiku Abubakar, and other chieftains of the party, were in attendance.
