A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Doyin Okupe, has warned that the party might go into extinction.
PDP chieftain predicts doom for party
The time has come for the PDP, if it must remain politically relevant, to embark on a total overhaul and reform itself.
According to Punch Newspapers, the former Senior Special Assistant on Public Affairs, said “The time has come for the PDP, if it must remain politically relevant, to embark on a total overhaul and reform itself. It must engage Nigerians in a new coalition for the sole purpose of putting our dear country on the path to true, real and the enduring change that will, once and for, all establish us as a major global player, not pretenders that we presently are.”
Adding that “The PDP must reform lest it dies, God forbids, a painful and insidious death.”
Okupe who was a vocal figure during Jonathan’s administration also said “The party (PDP) has suffered very serious bashing from the sustained avalanche of assaults from the gigantic propaganda machinery of the now ruling party.”
“The credibility of the party as a veritable political alternative to the APC has been nearly irreparably damaged. Some of the recent disclosures and more that may come up from the impending probes will further damage the national acceptability of the party.
At the end of the day, the APC may not meet the expectations of Nigerians or may, in fact, fail outright over time but the PDP, as it is presently constituted, will not be an acceptable alternative to the majority of Nigerians now or in the future,” he added.
