We Will defeat Buhari again - PDP

Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), on Monday, vowed that its presidential candidate in the 2015 election, President Goodluck Jonathan, would defeat the presidential candidate of the main opposition, the All Progressives Congress (APC), Major General Muhammodu Buhari, as it happened in the three previous elections.

Addressing members of the foreign chapters of the party in Abuja at an interactive session, PDP National Secretary, Professor Adewale Oladipo, disclosed that General Buhari had lost elections to the PDP thrice and that he would be floored again.

According to him, “we appreciate your contributions and presence during the National Convention of our party during which the party’s presidential candidate, President Goodluck Jonathan was adopted and we are set for his campaign ahead of the election. “The main opposition, the APC, had again presented its perennial candidate in person of General Buhari. He lost elections to PDP thrice in the past. We will defeat him again.”

Professor Oladipo told the party faithful that the PDP had already set up a Presidential Campaign Council to be headed by the party’s National Chairman, Alhaji Adamu Mu’azu, while the Director General of the Council would be a former national chairman of the party, Senator Ahmadu Ali and that all the foreign chapters would be involved in their various countries.

According to him, “all our foreign chapters will be involved in the issue-based campaign to counter all the lies of the APC.”

On the e-campaign proposal by the foreign chapters to boost the party’s campaign, Professor Oladipo promised that the idea would be included.

On the speculation making the round that PDP was facing mass exodus of its key members as a result of the last congresses and primaries, Professor Oladipo debunked the speculation, saying that there was no course for alarm.

Professor Oladipo also promised that the party would meet the December 26 deadline of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for the submission of the candidates’ list for the general election.
