2015: Only Nigerians Can Decide PDP, Jonathan’s Fate – APC To Tukur

Posted: October 31, 2013 in Politics

pdpThe All Progressives Congress (APC) has told Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, national chairman, Alhaji Bamanga Tukur that only Nigerians can decide President Goodluck Jonathan’s political fate in response to his statement that the President will rule beyond 2015.

The opposition party said the statement by Tukur was nothing but an empty boast aimed at ingratiating himself to the President.

The PDP national chairman had while receiving some members of the National Association of Nigerian Students, NANS, Anambra State chapter at his Wuse, Abuja residence earlier this week, told them that President Jonathan will hand over to a younger PDP candidate in 2019 hence the need for Nigerian youths to begin preparations towards taking charge at the national level.

But in a statement issued in Abuja on Wednesday by its Interim National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, APC asked the PDP Chairman to match his words with action by first stepping down from his post to pave way for the younger generation.

It reminded Tukur that one of his predecessors once boasted, in another euphoric moment, that the PDP will rule for 60 years, only for him to leave office shortly thereafter.

“There is nothing on ground to justify Tukur’s empty boast, which is again being oiled in readiness for 2015.
