The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) wishes to congratulate the Transformation Ambassadors of Nigeria (TAN) for successful conclusion of its sensitization rallies across the country in support of our sole Presidential candidate, His Excellency, Dr. Gooduck Ebele Jonathan, GCFR.

The party in a statement signed by Olisa Metuh and made available to NewsWireNGR, the party notes that through these rallies, the numerous achievements of the President Goodluck Jonathan-led PDP administration were adequately projected to the Nigerian populace and the international community.

The leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party had before now asked members of the Transformation Ambassadors of Nigerians and other groups in support of the second term of President Goodluck Jonathan not to include officials of the party in their campaigns.

Metuh, had said it was wrong to link officials of the party with the campaigns of the support groups.

But in a turn around, the party Monday said TAN movement, which is a novelty in the nation’s political development has indeed deepened democracy and broadened citizen participation in the polity.

“The collection of over 17 million signatures in support of President Jonathan during the rallies, is a clear demonstration of the far-reaching acceptance of our standard bearer and his party.” Statement reads.

The party concluded “The PDP particularly notes the unique contributions of Dr. Ifeanyi Ubah, the leader and the brain behind the TAN movement even as we recognize the willingness of TAN to work with our great party in furtherance of our collective objective ahead of the 2015 general elections.”
