Why We’ll Win 2015 Presidency – PDP

Published

on

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) says the unfolding political events in the country are a concrete indication that the party will win the presidency in 2015.

This is contained in a statement by the PDP National Publicity Secretary, Mr Olisa Metuh, in Abuja on Sunday.

Metuh said that the unfolding political event was also a sign that the PDP would win more states in 2015.

He welcomed opposition parties and particularly the yet to be registered All Progressive Congress (APC) to electoral contest in 2015, but noted that they were already “doomed to fail”.

According to him, Nigerians have since realised that they are “merely strange bed fellows who have nothing to offer but united by bitterness, frustration and religious and tribal sentiments”.

He said that the PDP remained the party to beat because of its democratic stance and formidable structures across the country.

“This is why the PDP will continue to win elections. The PDP is the only party that has formidable structures in all the wards, local government and states of the federation.

“We have the platform and a level playground to accommodate the views of everyone. People are free to express their views as a family. We galvanise the views for the common good, united by our commitment to serve the people,” Metuh said.

He, however, called on PDP members to close ranks and remain united.

He maintained that the divergent view in the PDP was a reflection of its democratic stance where all members had opportunity to air their views and to freely canvass their opinions.

This, he noted, was unlike what was obtained in opposition parties where opinions and views of members were muzzled by “political godfathers”.

“Internal disagreements are actually a reflection of the democratic stance of the PDP. The PDP is the only party where people are absolutely free to express their views and freely canvass their opinions.

“Unlike in the opposition parties where the views and opinions of members are muzzled by their godfathers,” he said.

He dismissed as “shadow chasing and day dreaming”, boasts by leaders of the yet to be registered opposition coalition, the APC, that they would take over government in 2015.

“Power lies only with the people and not in the hands of few desperate individuals,” the PDP spokesman, said.

He added that the opposition alliance would soon be in disarray because most of those in the ranks would be betrayed and victimised by godfathers who see the coalition as their personal estates.

He stressed that the PDP believes in the people, adding that no individual group or tribe owns the party. (NAN)

    I have always be a member of PDP and I will continue to be till there is no PDP again. But what I want to say here is Mr OLISA please try and say the truth to the PDP Governors that they are not doing anything, they should try and represent their people well, if the PDP governors are doing what is expected of them you will see that nobody will complain. They should have the fear of God in their heart Nigeria belongs to all of us let’s make it a better place let’s learn how to always said the truth and that will help all of us all the days of our lives.
