Former Minister of Information and Culture, Prof Jerry Gana, has said that Nigerians are tired of APC and eager to have PDP back in power in 2019.
The chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, appealed to Nigerians to give the party a chance, adding that the party has learnt their lessons and ready to restore the hopes of Nigerians.
He disclosed this while speaking at a consultative meeting between one of the aspirants of the national chairman of the party, Professor Tunde Adeniran and the delegates of the party from northwest in Kaduna on Monday.
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.”
“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 Further urged the delegates to cast their votes wisely in electing a leader like Adeniran 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.”
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.”
