Rev. Fr. Willy Ojukwu, the Vicar-General of the Catholic Church (Pastoral and Personnel) said that the crisis in Peoples Democratic Party was caused by selfishness.
According to Ojukwu, the time has come for power to change hands to the younger generation.
The cleric who spoke during the public presentation of his book entitled, ‘She spoke six times and Yet..’, where he called for a Nigerian President that should be like Nelson Madela of South Africa in the 2015 general elections.
The clergyman was unhappy with the internal crisis which had rocked the PDP leadership as well as the way its leaders had managed the affairs of the country for the past 14 years. He added that Nigerian youths should be given the opportunity to take over the administration of the country’s affairs.
According to him, the older politicians have had their turn, which he noted, they could not use to turn the country around.
Ojukwu said that PDP had embarked on a movement against the over 160 million Nigerians. He said that members of the party were selfish and pursuing personal ego which had drawn the party chieftains into abandoning the task of providing the dividends of democracy to Nigerians.
He said, “The book is very practical, especially for Nigerians. For instance, see what is happening in the ruling PDP. What is happening in the PDP today is simply power tussle and a personal ego, selfishness and unpatriotic movement against the over 160 million people.”
