There is this Yoruba idiom that says ‘Akuko Ko; which literally translates that ‘ a cock has crows’, which means an influential personality has passed away. Can Nigerians really take it and relate it to the current happenings within the PDP hierarchy?
If the current news and events emanating from Wadata Plaza, PDP headquarters is anything to go by then surely ‘cock has indeed crow’, from chair Bamanga Tukur uneasiness, to PDP NWC impending dissolution, Chief Tony Anenih unpopular posture, factions within PDP governors, president Jonathan’s helplessness, ministers and NASS members at loggerheads, then we are surely witnessing PDP cortege by 2015. The once mighty PDP armada is gradually sinking and caving in to APC invading battleships.
With Muhammadu Buhari and Bola Tinubu’s APC impressive and strong followings, PDP armada is gradually sinking and the cock has crow! The current PDP travails could be traced to it’s long years of failure to adhere to internal democracy, policy of kill and divide, come chop and who will arrest me? APC should learn from these by allowing effective internal democracy and neither imposing unpopular candidates on the electorates nor selling elective posts to the highest bidder.
The reverberation effect of PDP’s ineptitude is been felt across all sectors and segment of Nigeria; unemployment, corruption, insecurity, crude oil thefts and dearth of infrastructures. Things are no longer at ease and the center can no longer hold for PDP.. This is the end of PDP as one see the beginning and emergence of Muhammadu Buhari and Bola Tinubu’s APC, some aggrieved PDP members are sure of defecting to APC as situations unfolds.
PDP superfluous projections of ruling Nigeria for fifty years will be by 2015 confined to a dustbin of failed prediction. The tacit endorsement of Chief Tony Anenih by president Goodluck Jonathan over Olusegun Obasanjo [eru o bodo] is indeed an obsequies for PDP.. The entire South West PDP caucus and congresses is still firmly in the hands of Olusegun Obaanjo [eru o bodo] and with the alleged marginalization of the South West by president Jonathan administration and Olusegun Obasanjo [eru o bodo] tireless effort [do or die and captured] in his TSUNAMI [s]elections of 2007 to plant late Umaru Musa Yaradua at the helm of Nigeria affairs and with the recent misunderstandings between the president Jonathan and OBJ, PDP should forget the entire South West come 2015.
Many who knows Olusegun Obasanjo [eru o bodo] can testify to his unforgiven spirit and posture, he once seize Lagos State allocation for the then governor Bola Ahmed Tinubu for creating additional local government councils in Lagos State. In his self titled book; ‘This Animal Called Man’ is a testimony to these facts. The recent formation of PDP governors forum [to clip Rivers State governor Rotimi Amechi’s over bearing influence and possibly nail his vice-presidential ambition] is already crumbling like pack of cards, this is another ominous sign of greater problems for PDP as a party close in for 2015 elections, is this a tell tale sign?
I dont see PDP making inroads in the South West comes 2015, North Central has Niger State governor, Dr Babangida Muazu Aliyu in firm control, North West is ready to align with Muhammadu Buhari, North East can go either way for both PDP or APC, South -South undecided, South East; Nigeria political footstool will go for APC/PDP.
PDP formed by Nigerians best politicians and progressives, later hijacked by moneybags and later turned to personal fiefdom, what will the G18 and later G32 founding members of PDP be thinking now, seeing their visions and dreams gradually slipping to extinction?
PDP armada is SINKING!
