Opposition’s Victory In DRC Signposts Buhari’s Defeat – PDP

By: Ramjoe (M) |Time : January 11, 2019, 02:34:29 AM
The Peoples Democratic Party Presidential Campaign Organization (PPCO) has congratulated the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and the President-elect, Felix Tshiekedi, “for the triumph of the people’s verdict” in the just concluded Presidential election in that country, saying that his victory is a pointer to President Muhammadu Buhari’s imminent defeat.
 
In a statement issued in Abuja on Thursday by Kola Ologbondiyan, its Director, Media & Publicity, the organization argued that the defeat of ruling party’s candidate, Emmanuel Ramazani Shadary, “is another pointer to the impending defeat of President Muhammadu Buhari in the February 16 presidential election, as the African nation consolidates on entrenching of purposeful leadership in the continent.”
 
It added: “It is instructive to note that the people of DRC asserted their power of control and prevailed in enthroning the leadership of their choice, noting that such determination is inevitable in February 16, 2019, Presidential election in Nigeria.

“The victory of opposition candidate and particularly the relegation of the ruling party to the third position in the election despite the daunting challenges is a confidence booster for Nigerians on Atiku Abubakar’s victory despite the shenanigans and rigging schemes of the Buhari Presidency and the All Progressives Congress (APC).

“Nigerians should not also forget that in March 2018, the opposition candidate in Sierra Leone, Julius Maada Bio defeated the ruling party’s candidate. In December 2017, opposition George Weah defeated the sitting Vice President Joseph Boakai of Liberia while in December 2016, opposition party candidate, Nana Akufo-Addo defeated the incumbent President of Ghana, John Mahama.

“Those relying on rigging to shortchange Nigerians on February 16 should, therefore, be reminded, that as demonstrated in the DRC, the power of the people remains greater than the power of this nepotistic few.”

The party therefore called on all Nigerians, “particularly, the over 17 million Nigerians who have been rendered jobless by the Buhari Presidency as well as all victims of the mindless killings encouraged by government’s negligence and incompetence, to remain resolute in the national resolve to vote in the PDP Presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, as the next President to restore good governance, national cohesion and economic prosperity in our land.”

In my opinion this says a lot about the direction we heading in Nigeria. With the current administration which promised "change" there are no "change agents", how will they pull off any significant change, uh?

With 'em, people are dying in their numbers, may God console the grieving homes. Poverty is spreading it's fugly tentacles like wildfire throughout the country. The round peg which does the bidding of the powers that be gets appointed into a position meant for a square peg.

Above all there are people like Lai Mohammed, Garba Shehu working with the government. With such liars, I see no light at the end of the tunnel. I'm not a pessimist, I'm just being realistic!

Honestly we've come a long way in Africa, and Nigeria has indirectly contributed to that progress.
Much as some would not like to admit, but the PDP government years made sure that coups were discouraged in our near neighbourhood and even farther afar. No African country wanted to find out how Nigeria may respond to a coup. From OBJ all the way to current Buhari, we did not allow any coups to go unanswered, and that helped to set the tone and direction for African countries .
That is why our approaching elections is CRITICAL to Africa as well.
If we fail, African democracies can quickly unravel or go awry.

Nigeria should learn from this, the incumbent must not necessarily win. If the incumbent is sent off in Nigeria for the second time in a row, then the elected president will work hard and do the biddings of poor and larger percentage of Nigeria.
