Between APC and PDP
It is not easy to manage success and failure both at individual and group levels. This can be assessed by examining how APC and PDP are fairing after the last general elections were the former emerged victorious and the later failed woefully. APC won election but success management as you can see is not easy. The silence, the disquiet in APC fold speaks volumes of rancour and bickering of the intra-party squabbles within the ruling party. The fued between new entrants of the party from PDP and the legacy parties, the parties that collapsed there registration in order to give birth to APC is obvious and disheartening. The issue of dismal performance by few after a year of swearing in is also a matter of concern. There are instances were all we see are promises, excuses and pleas. They are performing at the federal, state and the local government at below the expectations of the people who voted them. The management of failure can equally prove challenging.
PDP, as expected is finding it hard to survive in opposition. The arms scam that has consumed the attention of most of the party chieftains, personal ambitious selfish, ago has overridden the basic collective interest of the party are the inability to contained defeat has led to splinter groups within the party fold thereby reducing the party's chances of becoming of formidable opposition party which global best democratic practices cherish and accommodates. Success and failure are part of the human experience which we should learn to manage. One is entangled in the other.
