- Says party will declare Marshall plan in North-east
Chuks Okocha in Abuja
The National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Adamu Mu’azu, has said he is not expecting a landslide victory for the party in the general election, but he is convinced that the PDP will emerge victorious in the election.
According to Muazu, “While I do not see a landslide victory coming, I am convinced that our party will perform creditably in the South-west and the North of Nigeria and elsewhere in all the elections this year because the evidence is clear that despite our travails at the beginning, we have done very well over the past 16 years of our nascent democracy since 1999 to record a victory. Those who disbelieve our resilience will be surprised for victory is ours.”
In a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Tony Amadi, on Thursday, Mu’azu also promised that President Goodluck Jonathan will declare a marshall plan to rebuild the North-east geo-political zone affected by the war if he is reelected.
“Our party has this programme on the top of our agenda in the next four years. That will be the right way to wipe away the scars of war among the people of that area,” Mu’azu stated.
According to the national chairman, PDP would win South-west and the North despite “our travails at the beginning.”READ MORE HERE
