According to him, the PDP will meet at states and federal levels to correct its mistakes.

“We will come back in 2019 to take what we lost in this year's elections. “Our party (PDP) is not dead. “When all these cool down, we will properly re-organize to bring PDP back to its formidable political strength. Many things have happened and this is not the time for us to cast blames.

“I therefore hope that the time we will have to re-organize our party we would add more ideologies to what we have. Let me urge you to stop thinking you have failed. “In terms of elections, particularly the time we found ourselves, it went beyond the limits of individual effort.”

Governor Aliyu,  thanked Niger State electorates for conducting themselves in the most peaceful manner, adding that the elections were free and fair, devoid of electoral violence.

in his remarks, Alhaji Wushishi hailed Governor Aliyu for the way and manner he took the elections despite the fact that the results were not in favour of the PDP, saying  he exhibited the character of a good leader.

He urged Aliyu not to be dismayed by the result, adding that he has done well in the area of dividend of democracy. Wushishi said the challenge was the fact that the Nigerian electorates were conclusive in the area of voting for a particular political party regardless of their candidate. He said: “We will continue to be with you wherever you go.

“You can always count on us whenever you need us. “We have seen your work in all the 25 Local Government Areas of Niger State. “May God continue to bless and guide you in your future endeavour.”
