Former National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Bamanga Tukur has revealed why the party failed in the just concluded general elections.

In a interview with Punch Newspapers during the celebration of his 80th birthday, Tukur said the lack of internal democracy was the bane of the PDP.

He said “Well, when I was there I won elections and in the same vein, if I was there I also expect to win the election. But first and foremost, this is a democracy and in every democratic system, you have the opposition and the party in government."

“So, it is time (for the opposition) because it is a democracy and it is the people who decide who they want to vote for and that is what the people have done. Sure the PDP will rediscover itself. I am sure about that; it is their own party and they can find out what have gone wrong," Tukur said.

He further stated that he will not defect to the All Peoples Congress (APC).
