2019: PDP Goes Into Alliance With Other Political Parties

By Ikenga Chronicles February 9, 2017

The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, is optimistic that the ruling All Progress Congress, APC, must be voted out from the seat of presidency by 2019 general election.

To achieve this aim, the party met with four other political parties in Abuja on Thursday which vowed to work together to make sure that the APC does not continue to lead the country beyond 2019.

Earlier on Wednesday, a former Minister of Information and member of the Ahmed Makarfi-led faction of the PDP, Jerry Gana, had disclosed during the presentation of a report by PDP’s Strategy Review and Inter-Party Affairs Committee, in Abuja, that the party is already in talks with seven parties, who are willing join forces with the party to throw APC out.

Gana, who is the chairman of the PDP committee, was optimistic that the Buhari-led APC must be defeated in 2019, said that the political parties PDP are in talks with are the ones that have strong democratic tenets.

However, it was learnt that the four parties that met with the PDP were Peoples Redemption Party, Social Democratic Party, Accord Party and
Alliance for Democracy.

According to Gana, the alliance is not going to lead into a mega party as people are already alleging, but will be a separate and highly principled
initiative of the PDP.

The PDP and the other four political parties in a communique following their meeting on Thursday claimed the cries of many Nigerians on the country’s situation since the coming of APC was the major reason they are uniting, adding that their mission is to save the country from total collapse.

They vowed to unite and work concertedly to actualise the aspiration of majority of Nigerians who are now suffering untold hardship under APC leadership.

While a good number of Nigerians are not happy with APC promised change that has continued to be elusive, the crisis rocking the former ruling party, which occupied the seat of the country’s presidency from 1999 until it was voted out in the 2015 general elections, is also not helping in positioning PDP as a better alternative.
