2019: Reasons Nigerians won’t vote PDP, says APC

The political atmosphere is beginning to rave up again, following the resolution of the leadership crisis that beset the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), and most recently the conduct of its non-elective convention in Abuja.

The development has somewhat rankled the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), particularly when the former boasted that it will return to power in 2019.

But predictably, the APC promptly dismissed PDP’s boast as the ranting of an ant, for which it cannot lose sleep.

In a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Mr. Bolaji Abdullahi, the party dismissed the PDP’s boast to take power in the 2019 elections as ‘empty’.

The statement read:

“Restructuring is the main issue for Nigerians right now. Nigerians have concluded that the status quo is not working for them and they want some structural changes that would enhance effective governance; that government operates for the good of the people. But the PDP has shown it does not believe in restructuring. It is not in their manifesto.

The 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.

Nigerians want a country that will work for them and they know the PDP cannot provide the kind of government that would deliver. APC remains the party to beat by a wide margin in 2019.”
