‘Why PDP can’t bounce back’


All Progressives Congress (APC) chieftain Chief Karounwi Oladapo has said the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) cannot bounce back in the next general elections because it cannot put its house in order.

Describing the main opposition party as a crisis-ridden platform, he said the pattern of unresolved conflicts has reflected in its leadership in stability.

Oladapo, a former Deputy Speaker of the Ekiti House of Assembly, said Nigerians will not endorse a party that cannot put its house in order at the poll.

He noted in a statement that many if the PDP national chairmen never completed their tenure, owning to protracted crisis.

Oladapo said APC is better in crisis management, urging the PDP to learn from its crisis resolution mechanism.

The Southwest APC spokesman said:”PDP has never produced a national chairman that successfully completed tenure of Office since its creation in 1998, that is, 23 years ago.

“From Chief Solomon Lar to Sunday Awoniyi to Barnabas Gemade to Audu Ogbe to Ahmadu Ali to Vincent Ogbulafor to John Nwodo to Bamanga Turkur to Adamu Muazu to Ali Modu Sheriff to Ahmed Makahfi to Uche Secondus to Yemi Akinwonmi back to Uche Secondus again, back to Akinwonmi, the stories the same.”

“Some chairmen were removed on account of corruption and forgery, while some were removed at gun point without any offence. What a party!

“Count the number of the PDP national chairmen and divide by the years of existence of the PDP, then, it will not be out of place to describe PDP as “one year, one national chairman.”

APC, created in 2013, that is eight years ago, produced its first interim National Chairman, Chief Bisi Akande who successfully completed assignments and handed over to another National Chairman, Chief John Odigie Oyegun. Oyegun Successfully completed tenure and handed over to another National Chairman, Comrade Adams Oshiomole that had a truncated tenure of Office. APC is on a journey to producing another national chairman.”

To manage the Public affairs of Nigeria, He added:”Nigerians will always choose between a political party that couldn’t manage its own affairs and the party that has been effectively managing its internal affairs. Trust is key. Political antecedent counts.”
