baraje-11Former acting National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Alhaji Kawu Baraje, has passed a damning verdict on the party, saying PDP has failed Nigerians.

Baraje, who until August 31, when he joined other members of the party to stage a walk-out from the ruling party’s special mini-convention at the Eagle Square, Abuja, to form their own faction known as “New PDP”, was a top member and one of the policy makers of the PDP.

According to Baraje, who spoke with reporters in Ilorin, the Kwara State capital on Sunday, the party had failed to fulfill its electoral promises to Nigerians.

Baraje said, “PDP has failed the people and I make bold to say that. The PDP that I know, that I was the chairman; that I was the National Secretary, currently is no longer the PDP that we had when I was there and when many of us were there.

“It derailed because it has failed to fulfill the promises in its manifestoes.

“We told the people who voted us into power that we are going to give them economic freedom, employment, electricity and qualitative education.  We also promised that we were going to give food in abundance. You and I can answer to these whether we have been able to do these”, he said.

Baraje, who had to resign his appointment as Chairman of the Board of Nigeria Railway Corporation, NRC, following his decision to lead the New PDP as its national chairman, claimed that the recent defections witnessed in the polity was as a result of unfilled aspirations, noting that it was normal to agree or to disagree in the game of politics.

He said, “Anything can happen, provided the party has the wherewithal to satisfy the electorate. When election comes, Nigerian electorates have the right to decide”.

  1. Uncle Baraje and all other Nigerian politicians, we are tired of your complaints and immoral cross carpeting. Please take a cue from Michael Bloomberg, Mayor of New York City:


    Want to know the difference between a POLITICIAN and a STATESMAN? It is said a Politician worries about the next Election while a Statesman worries about the next Generation.

    When are we going to have a real Statesman in this country? When are we going to have people like Ghandi (Bappu), Mandela (Madiba), and the outgoing New York Mayor, Michael R. Bloomberg as Politicians-Statesmen that can overshadow our polity for good?

    What we see now are power mongers, power grabbers, money grabbers, ethnic jingoist and all what not as rulers: Rulers and not Leaders from Independence till now.

    Even the money they stole from the National Treasury they have no panache to play Robin Hood with. Too brutish and crude fellows we are burdened with as rulers. But let’s see this man, Michael R. Bloomberg, outgoing Mayor of New York, flourishing as a Statesman by spending $650million of his personal money on the city of New York.
