Former information minister, Prof. Jerry Gana, has been readmitted into the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Gana said he was happy to be back in PDP and thanked former senate president, David Mark and all those that helped them find their way back into the party.
The former minister noted that expectations are high among Nigerians about what the opposition party can do if it is able to return to power at the centre in 2023.
“Nigerians expect you to take over the governance of this country for good governance to ensure the peace and security of this country. I therefore urge the PDP to mobilise together and be united to rescue Nigeria and restore good governance, ensure security of lives and property and instill confidence in the minds of all Nigerians."
Prof. Gana did not return to the PDP alone on Saturday as there were some other top politicians.
