How PDP will regain power in 2019 – Jonathan

Former Goodluck Jonathan and ex-Vice President Atiku Abubakar have expressed optimism that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) will return to power in 2019.

They said that party which lost the presidential election in 2015 is getting stronger.

Both leaders spoke on Wednesday with newsmen when Jonathan welcomed Atiku to his house in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State.

On the chances of the PDP returning to power at the federal level, Jonathan said that the party is getting stronger, affirming that PDP is now better poised to win the 2019 Presidential election.

He said: “Yes, we had some issues in 2015. But as you know politics is a very dynamic business. I believe PDP is coming back and getting stronger. Even though we are in the opposition with fewer Governors, PDP is still the strongest and largest party.”

The ex-president believes that PDP’s large base will help it wrestle power from the ruling APC.

Jonathan said he was pleased that Atiku who came to Bayelsa to commission state government projects was able to pay him a visit. He added that he had enjoyed a long relationship with Atiku, beginning from when he was a Deputy Governor in Bayelsa State.

In the same vein, Atiku insisted that only the PDP has the strength and structure to win the Presidential election and return to Aso Rock in 2019. His words: “It is actually the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) that has the strength and structure to get back to Aso Rock. There is no other party that has the structure and strength like the PDP. Without PDP, APC should not have been in Aso Rock.”
