APC has not proven it won 2015 polls - Ciroma
ordinary Nigerians, and should be challenged for not delivering the desired change to the nation.
Addressing members and leaders of the PDP Board of Trustees (BoT), led by Senator Walid Jibrin, who visited him at his residence in Abuja, yesterday, Ciroma said the PDP remains the party to beat in the 2019 general elections.
He called on the APC to play what he called “the rightful role”, by ensuring that “ordinary Nigerians” feel the impact of its governance.
“Politics must always be there and there must be people to participate in it. But we must ensure the economic stability of the ordinary citizens. Every party that has the chance to rule also has the chance to make mistakes, but, I insist, people must play the right role in politics and that role must impact positively on the ordinary people.
“I want the APC to play the rightful role. They talked about the PDP now as if the APC does not exist. The APC must make mistakes, so, all of you (PDP leaders) must be ready.
“I warned PDP leaders before the elections, that they should be ready for any eventuality that takes place.
“Today, PDP didn’t lose and APC didn’t win because APC has a lot to do,” he said.
BoT chairman Walid Jibrin said the visit was to seek advice from Ciroma on how to deepen internal democracy in the PDP and Nigeria at large.
Also, a former minister of Information, Prof Jerry Gana, who was part of the delegation, said “Nigeria is going through difficult times.”
