In a statement issued in Lagos on Sunday, Akande noted that President Jonathan was too busy focusing on the internal crisis rocking his party – Peoples’ Democratic Party, PDP, than finding solutions to the economic and infrastructural problems facing the country.
The statement reads, “President Jonathan has not impressed the citizens with the performance of his government. Many that voted for him in the 2011 election have been disappointed.
“Even if his party gives him automatic ticket for the 2015 election, he cannot win. The President’s low performance apart, there is no President that can win a credible poll with a factionalized party on the eve of election.”
According to him, “The PDP has become a divided house, with one faction fighting the other. The President now spends his time trying to patch the PDP’s tattered umbrella such that he has no time for the worsening state of the economy and insecurity in the country. He will definitely lose the 2015 election and if by any means he wins, there will be questions to be answered.”
Akande affirmed that there was no way the PDP could win the presidential election again in 2015 going by the performance of the party’s elected officials at the centre since 1999.
He added that “The PDP has imposed too much of social, economic and political misery on the people since 1999, and it will be difficult for the electorate to vote for the party again”.
Akande stressed that there was no hope for the common man in Nigeria except a drastic change sets in, through change of leadership using the ballot box.
