The remark was made by the Chairman of the party, Mr. Kingsley Esiso, when he hosted the PDP Patriotic Ladies in Asaba on Wednesday, August 10, 2016. Esiso, who was making reference to the APC’s campaign mantra and its promise to change things when elected into office said that for about two years now, the country has experienced nothing but negative changes.
He, therefore, advised Nigerians to hang on till 2019, assuring that the party will change the negative change.
“They came with the mantra of change that former President Goodluck Jonathan was not doing well but the reverse is now the case. We will endure till 2019 to change the change.”
This is a very strong indication that the PDP is already doing some necessary under-ground work that will enable them clinch the seat of power in the forth-coming 2019 election.
Meanwhile, speaking on Tuesday, August 9, after a meeting with factional PDP chairman, Ali Modu Sheriff, the head of the Peoples Democratic Party’s Reconciliation Committee, Prof. Jerry Gana, said Nigerians are yearning and crying for the return of the party into power.
In order to make their journey back to the Aso Rock in 2019 a reality, the PDP have decided to put their house in order by resolving the leadership crisis between Senator Ahmed Makarfi and Senator Ali Modu Sheriff, which poses a very huge threat to the achievement of this goal.
As a step in the right direction, the PDP Board of Trustees, led by Senator Walid Jibrin, inaugurated an 18-man reconciliation committee to unite party loyalists.
