It’s Impossible For APC To Win 2015 Presidency – PDP


Despite its dwindling political fortunes in the North-West, the leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party boasted on Tuesday that it would be impossible for the All Progressives Congress to win the 2015 Presidency.
The National Publicity Secretary of the party, Chief Olisa Metuh, stated this in Kaduna on Tuesday. Metuh was at the meeting convened by the Vice President Namadi Sambo to deliberate on the lingering crisis in the party in the North-West zone.
Sambo, who had practically relocated to Kaduna following the gale of defections from the PDP to the APC, met party stakeholders from Sokoto, Kano and Zamfara states at the late Gen. Hassan Katsina House, Kawo, Kaduna on Tuesday.
Sources at the meeting told journalist that the stakeholders reviewed the challenges and prospects of the ruling party in the Northern states, particularly in Kano,Sokoto and Zamfara states that had been taken over by the APC.
It was gathered the the tension-soaked meeting, which had in attendance former Speaker of the House of Representatives, Ghali Na’aba; son of the late Head of State, Mohammed Abacha; and other prominent party chiefs from Kano, Sokoto and Zamfara states, deliberated extensively on how to win back those states that had gone to the opposition in the 2015 elections.
Metuh, who spoke to reporters at the venue of the meeting, insisted that it would be impossible for the APC to emerge as the national ruling party in 2015.
The PDP spokesman, who breezed into Kaduna apparently on directives of the PDP National Secretariat to assess the political situation in Kaduna and other North-West zone, said the PDP remained the party to beat regardless of the current crisis threatening the party.
