PDP will never re­cover — APC

Daily Trust - - PROPERTY - By Muideen Olaniyi

The PDP will never re­cover be­cause Nige­ri­ans would re­ject it in the race for the Pres­i­dency in 2019, Na­tional Pub­lic­ity Sec­re­tary of the APC, Malam Bo­laji Ab­dul­lahi, said yes­ter­day.

Malam Ab­dul­lahi was re­act­ing to com­ments by chief­tains of the PDP at the party’s non-elec­tive con­ven­tion held on Sat­ur­day.

He said the APC re­mained the pre­ferred choice for Nige­ri­ans who would not be car­ried away by “rhetoric of those who short-changed them for six­teen years.”

Ac­cord­ing to him, re­struc­tur­ing was the most crit­i­cal is­sue at the mo­ment, but al­leged that the PDP never be­lieved in it.

“Nige­ri­ans have con­cluded that the sta­tus quo is not work­ing for them and they want some struc­tural changes that would en­hance ef­fec­tive gov­er­nance; but the PDP has shown it does not be­lieve in re­struc­tur­ing. It is not in their man­i­festo.

“PDP never be­lieves in re­struc­tur­ing, for that alone Nige­ri­ans won’t vote for them come 2019. They held two na­tional con­fer­ences and it was never on their plans. It is not in their man­i­festo and it can­not be in their plans to­wards 2019,” he said.

Chair­man of the PDP Na­tional Care­taker Com­mit­tee, Sen­a­tor Ahmed Makarfi while ad­dress­ing the Sat­ur­day’s con­ven­tion said that the PDP wished Pres­i­dent Muham­madu Buhari quick re­cov­ery such that he could be de­feated by the op­po­si­tion in 2019.
