Former national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Bamanga Tukur, has said he did well in office before his exit earlier in the year.
Speaking at a reception convened at Lelewa Hotel in Yola by the state exco of PDP in his honour, Tukur expressed delight at his ability to institute internal democracy, discipline and ideology in the PDP.
He called on PDP stakeholders to come together and give “authentic leadership to its citizenry so that the state can enjoy the dividends of democracy.”

“I have been so humbled and grateful for this gathering. I was sent on a mission and that mission is accomplished- that mission is to go and reform and strengthen our party and make it formidable and that is what I have done,” he said.
