Thereafter, the oath of office was administered on them, birthing a new leadership for the main opposition in its bid to reclaim power at the centre following a 16-year rule.

The PDP had been in power since the return to civil rule in 1999 until it lost to the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the 2015 general elections.

Amidst the ecstasy that comes with the new office, the chairman of the 2021 PDP Convention and Adamawa State Governor, Ahmadu Fintiri, reminded the officers of the tasks ahead.

On his part, Ayu who is also a former President of the Senate briefed the party leaders and members at the event on what the new NWC would be doing differently to reclaim power at the centre.

The event was well attended by party leaders including serving and former governors, National Assembly members, and two former vice presidents, Atiku Abubakar and Namadi Sambo.
