The Presidency on Sunday described the claim by Governors Rotimi Amaechi of Rivers State and Rabiu Kwankwaso of Kano State that the Peoples Democracy Party (PDP) would lose the presidential election in 2015 as wishful thinking.
Amaechi and Kwankwaso are two out of the five PDP governors that defected to All Progressives Congress, APC, and have in recent times declared that the opposition will dislodge the ruling party come 2015.
But the Special Adviser to President Goodluck Jonathan on Political Matters, Mr. Ahmed Gulak, said contrary to the governors’ claim, the PDP would win convincingly in the forthcoming election and again form the government at the centre.
Gulak described the APC as a bed of strange fellows which had already started experiencing crisis in some of the states that the governors recently defected.
He said, “That claim by the two governors and others in the APC is a wishful thinking.
“I can assure you that the PDP will win the next general elections and form the government at the federal level.
“The PDP is the only organised national party in the country. It is the party to beat.
“The APC is a bed of strange fellows. You know that they have started experiencing crisis. Go to Sokoto State, they have two offices already. That is happening in some other states too”, Gulak stressed.
