A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP) and Former Senator representing Benue North-West in the National Assembly, Joseph Waku, says the fortunes of the party will change in 2019.
He expressed optimism that PDP will sack the All Progressives Congress (APC) led Federal Government.
Speaking with the Sun newspaper, he said: “From the faces of the people I saw at the convention amidst jubilant mood, I think Nigeria is beginning to see a strong opposition that will put the ruling party on its toes. That convention was an experimental convention to see if people are still there.
“And from what I saw, people are still there and even looking cheerful. From what I watched on the television, there was no dull moment. I think it is a healthy opposition.
“With the new development, the ruling party will now be mindful enough not to do anything that will undermine the rights of every member to aspire for any position. If it does, there will be a counter change. APC is now a pregnant woman; no one can predict what child it will bear.
“What the PDP did at its recent convention is a danger signal for the APC. Let nobody deceive you, it is a danger signal.
“There are quite a number of people in the APC who have impunity in their DNA. My advice to such people is for them to begin to have a rethink. If the impunity in their DNA is not treated, they will be a target for a counter change.
“It is regrettable that many of those who came from the PDP to join the APC perfected the art of impunity and even made things worse than what PDP used to do.
“Therefore, if the PDP could make good its words to discard the idea of impunity, APC will have crisis unless the leadership stops the impunity of running the party like a one man show.”
