The PDP Crisis will not stop the party from return to power in 2019 because it is a conglomeration of Nigerians.
The former Governor of Jigawa Sule Lamido on Sunday said that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) crisis currently rocking the party had always been the order of the day since the party’s 16 years reign at the helm of power.
Lamido, speaking with Journalists in the State, the former Governor stated that the lingering crisis was an indication that the party is still strong. He added that it was normal for people to fight for what is “existent, valuable, worthy and important”.
He said: “PDP is a big party that has history and it is a party of conglomeration of all Nigerians across divides. This is not our first PDP crisis; if you go down our history from the formation of the party, you will notice that this is not the first time we are having crisis.
“You can remember that the late Sunday Awoniyi had battle of leadership with former Chairman Banabas Gemade. We also had crisis during Audu Ogbeh’s reign. You don’t fight for what is not in existence. PDP was in power for 16 years and the crisis and fight had always been with us.”
He said that both Ahmed Makarfi and Modu Sherrif are members of PDP and would remain members no matter how the current chairmanship tussle ends up.
Lamido expressed confidence in the party’s capacity to resolve its differences, saying the discord within the party would soon be over.
