Zungur urged the PDP leadership at the state and national levels to fully integrate them into the party with justice, equity and fairness and pledged support for its candidates in the forthcoming general election.

“We left the APC because it failed to address numerous internal crises which might result in electoral defeat in the 2023 general election.”
