It will be impossible, except by the grace of God Almighty alone, to use the brand, PDP to win any election in Nigeria – Doyin Okupe
Nigerian Tribune: Views of Dr. Doyin Okupe, former spokesman to both former Presidents Olusegun Obasanjo and Goodluck Jonathan, on the PDP crisis
“From the time of Jonathan, the party has been extensively mauled, disparaged and destroyed within and outside this country by negative propaganda. And unfortunately, we were not able to sufficiently counter this propaganda.
“When Buhari’s government came, it finally buried the previous government and the party that brought that government to power. It will be impossible, except by the grace of God Almighty alone, to use the brand, PDP to win any election in the country again. PDP is indulging in an unnecessary arrogance that will further make it to fail.”
“Only God knows what will happen to the PDP. I am not in the habit of lying even when it comes to public discourse.
“PDP is heavily burdened and much of the burden is self-inflicted. In the last administration, an error was committed. Before we disengaged after we lost the election, we should have straightened the leadership of the party.
“We did not do that and that was a fundamental error. This gave room for all comers and pretenders to the throne; people who have not even learnt the ABC of politics to become leaders in PDP.
“There is a grand error in party administration in the country and I think it started from the Obasanjo administration. Once you are a governor, you become the leader of the party. This is a fallacy.”
