After being sacked from government in 2015, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) have been making many promises to find their way back to power.
What Nigerians are asking is what is new about the avalanche of promises being made.
The latest from their National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, is that the PDP would immediately revamp Nigeria’s economy as well as restore democratic tenets and the rule of law in the country, if elected in 2019.
He said the only way to end the economic recession, human rights abuses and daily bloodletting bedeviling witnessed in the last three years was for all Nigerians to rally with the PDP and vote out the All Progressives Congress (APC) in 2019.
For them, it is now clear to all that the APC lacks the capacity to run an economy as big as Nigeria.
But with the wave of defecting going on whereby both PDP and APC continue to ‘exchange’ members, what is the difference between both parties?
Ologbondiyan, according to the statement issued by his office on Sunday in Abuja said that the PDP was already working on a robust blueprint for national cohesion and economic recovery.
“On our part, the PDP believes in a united Nigeria and the potentials of Nigerians as a people.
“That is why the PDP always runs on democratic principles and all-inclusive policies that effectively galvanize the productive energies of our people for national cohesion and economic prosperity, as witnessed in the 16 years of PDP in governance.
“As a party committed to the good of all, we have continued to spread out to Nigerians from across all walks of life in developing a recovery blueprint to re-open our national space for peace, reconciliation, cohesion and economic recovery, immediately we are returned into office.
“So, the solution is for Nigerians to brace up and rally on the platform of the repositioned PDP to rescue and rebuild our nation, come 2019.”
