A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Abubakar Tsav has said that the party lost woefully in the recently held general elections because it had been taken over by a group of people.

Tsav named First Lady, Patience Jonathan, Ekiti State Governor, Ayo Fayose and ex-minister, Femi Fani-Kayode as the people who took control of the party.

“The party was taken over by Mrs Jonathan, Gov. Fayose, Mr Femi Fani-Kayode among others. Imagine the First Lady inciting people to be violent during the campaigns,” Tsav said.

“She also brazenly insulted the people of the North and a former Head of State without due regard to the party chairman, who is from the North. Fayose and Fani-Kayode also engaged in the hate campaign against the opposition. The opposition was focused and never left the substance to pursue the shadow,” he added.

Tsav also spoke on the current state of the PDP saying that its umbrella is now leaking.

He further blamed the fall of the party on the exit of former President, Olusegun Obasanjo and other founding members.
