Jonathan’s Supporters To Pull Out From PDP, Float New Mega Party

Goodluck-Jonathan-PDPThe blow dealt the former ruling party, Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in the last general elections may be nothing compared to latest reports that a section of its members may have decided to pull out of the party to float a new mega party.

Confirming this development, the spokesperson of the proposed new party, Chief Perry Opara, said that a meeting, which was held in respect to the formation of the new mega party, attracted reasonable turnout and members canvassed the formation of a masses movement that will provide a platform for the masses, since the PDP can no longer be a credible opposition platform.

Opara, who was Nigeria’s first national chairman of Inter-Party Advisory Council (IPAC), while justifying the reason for the formation of a new mega party, argued that they are disappointed that the umbrella of PDP has torn beyond repairs and the house is infected, which has made the image of PDP to be presently irredeemable.

According to him, “The leadership of the party is embroiled with corruption charges, a situation where BOT Chairman, NWC members and top leaders of the party are facing corruption charges, credible men can no longer remain in a stinking house.

“I assure Nigerians that as the probe continues, it will be difficult for leaders and members of PDP to visit Wadata Plaza. PDP has become a symbol of corruption, impunity and lawlessness. It will be difficult for PDP to win future elections in Nigeria.

“In the last election, party functionaries striped aspirants of their hard -earned monies. Some aspirants spent more than N500 million just to get party ticket and after collecting huge sums from aspirants, they still denied them tickets. What a fraud.

“We have identified few elders who are credible enough to lead and they will be identified in due course”.
