Professor Jerrry Gana,a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)has said that Nigerians are eagerly waiting for the party to return to power in 2019 due to the inability of the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) to do better than the PDP.
Feggeloaded.com.ng gathered that Gana said: “Nigerians are tired of APC and they are eagerly waiting for us (PDP) to put our house in order. Agreed we have made mistakes during our 16 years of reign in government but we have learned our lessons and we are telling Nigerians that we are sorry.”
The former minister of information added: “We have a duty to restore the hopes of many hopeless Nigerians who now see PDP as an alternative platform to take over power in 2019.”
He told the delegates to use their votes wisely in electing a leader that will take the party to the promise land, saying,
“Professor Tunde Adeniran is the man that can do that for the party and ordinary Nigerian.”
The PDP stalwart further said, “They decided to support Adeniran for three reasons: When the party wanted to make headway in the southwest in 2003, he helped us to mobilise the people of the zone.
“Secondly, here is a man if elected the ruling APC will not witch hunt over corrupt charges, and lastly because as one of the founding fathers of the party he will put the programme of the party forward.”
Also speaking, a former national chairman of the party, Okweziele Nwodo remarked that, ” This is the last hope of our party to come back to power and we only do that by voting for people who have the vision of our founding fathers.”
He implored delegates in the zone to do the needful by electing Adeniran, saying, “he is a true party man who has seen everything since the return of this democratic dispensation.”
Speaking during the event, the aspirant, Professor Tunde Adeniran described the northwest as the political nerve centre of the country.
