PDP vows to reclaim power from APC in 2019

Again, the national leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has vowed to reclaim power from the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, in 2019.

Speaking with journalists, yesterday, at a meeting with North-Central members of PDP, Chairman of the North-Central sub-committee, Hon. Emeka Ihedioha, said that mistakes which led to the party’s poor performance in the March 28 Presidential, National Assembly and April elections were being corrected to reposition the party for future victory.

Part of the efforts to reclaim power was the post election committee set up by the National Working Committee, NWC, under the leadership of Prince Uche Secondus to look into the remote and immediate cause of why PDP lost to the APC in the last election.

The post election committee headed by the Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, has reiterated its commitment to correct whatever led to the party’s poor performance during the just concluded 2015 general elections.

According to Ihedioha, “the party cannot afford to lose in some states elections including Kogi State, which is expected to hold next year.”

Explaining why the committee was set up, the former Deputy Speaker, House of Representatives stressed that much was expected from the committee set up to address issues of post elections’ grievances, why the party lost amongst other issues, adding that much was expected from the party as some governorship elections were around the corner, but however lamented the party’s lost both at the Presidency, the Senate and House of Representatives as well as some states to the APC.
