It Is Beyond Impossible For PDP To Win This -Tinubu

 Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress APC, is of the opinion that it is impossible for the opposition party, PDP, to win the 2019 presidential election. In an interview with Statehouse correspondents after his meeting with President Buhari at the presidential villa yesterday, October 31st, Tinubu stated that Nigerians will not allow PDP into power again. On if he is scared of the several meetings Atiku has been having of late, the former Lagos state governor stressed that; ”We don’t fear, whether it is in the jungle or in Dubai or in Abu Dhabi; people are free to meet and strategise in anyway they want but we are not going back to the illusion of the PDP. It is not possible; Nigerians will not do that. They say slow and steady wins the race. We inherited that from our forefathers and knowledgeable people. We can’t go back to the pit that we inhabited for 16 years. They can strategise from anywhere but a leopard cannot change its skin,” he said.Tinubu continued; ”No. We all have to respect party supremacy. You were all here when we had the Congress, we elected the new executives, the convention we had it, the NEC was formed and we surrendered to avoid conflict, to avoid domination, to avoid abuses of power, we surrendered our rights, all rights to the National Working Committee headed by Adams Oshiomohole. That the National Working Committee should set up electoral bodies to supervise various state congresses and elections. ‘We signed off for it’. So, if it is not in our individual favour, so be it. “We gave three options, consensus; where there is no consensus because if you are more than two or three and you cannot agree to one candidate, you go to the next level. The next level is the stakeholder’s delegate and you have to be supervised by the National Working Committee of the party, national election committee of the party. That shows party supremacy or the freest option; the less cumbersome is to open direct primary, line up and count the number, 1,2,3.  If you win, you win and if you fail, go home. Then the appeal committee was set up to listen to all appeals; the internal mechanism for conflict resolution. It was there; you cannot turn round against that, you cannot turn against all of that. No. Party is supreme. The party must be respected. Abuses will not do it and anger will not do it. It is party politics. Somebody will win and somebody will lose, too bad.” he saidPhoto Credit: Getty
