Immediate past Minister of Interior, Abba Moro, has stated that the defeat of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) at last general elections in the country is a test to identify the party’s true faithful.

Moro also stressed that the PDP would bounce back to life, adding that the defeat of the party during the elections was a temporal setback.

The former minister disclosed this on Sunday while addressing party supporters at a reception held in his honour at his country home in Ugbokolo, Okpokwu Local Government Area (LGA) of Benue State.

“PDP’s defeat is only a temporary setback. It is a moment that determines for us who is a faithful PDP member and who is not,” he said.

He also assured party supporters that graced the occasion that it would be a matter of time before the party regains its lost glory as it had already learnt from its past mistakes and resolved to move forward.

Moro further explained that it was actually PDP members that defeated itself, insisting that the All Progressive Congress (APC) as a party could not have wrested power from the PDP.

Earlier, at a thanksgiving service held in his honour, Moro who thanked God for keeping him advised members of the party to be strong and remain steadfast.
