The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Nasarawa State has set May 10 for President Goodluck Jonathan’s visit to the state to receive new members into the party at a rally in Lafia.

He said the visit was arranged for the president to receive those who decamped to the party, including Governor Umaru Tanko Al-Makura’s deputy, Dameshi Barau Luka, who defected to the PDP on March 4, as well as federal lawmakers – Senator Solomon Ewuga (PDP, Nasarawa-North), Rep Joseph Haruna Kigbu (PDP, Lafia/Obi), Rep David Ombugadu (PDP, Akwanga/Nasarawa- Eggon/Wamba), and Rep Ishaq Kana (PDP, Keffi/ Kokona/Karu) among others who defected from the All Progressives Congress (APC) recently.
The PDP spokesman said all arrangements have been made by the state wing of the party to receive the president on that day.
