President Goodluck Jonathan has assured his party men in the Peoples Democratic Party that the machinery to deal the last blow that will bring Boko Haram insurgency to an end has been put in motion.
The President gave the assurance at the 65th National Executive Committee meeting of the party holding in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.
While addressing the gathering, the President observed that insecurity in the country is predominant in non PDP states and commended the commitment of members of the board of trustees, the leadership of the party in the National Assembly, and state chairmen of the party for remaining faithful to the administration in the face of daunting challenges.
According to him the PDP will remain the dominant party in the Nigerian political space.
The National Chairman of the party, Adamu Muazu had earlier congratulated the President for the successes he has recorded amidst the security challenges promising that his party will take Nigerians to the promise land.
A political scientist, Isuwa Dogo has assured that the PDP is not threatened at all by any party either registered or yet to be registered by the INEC as ‘the PDP is a well-organised, focused, balanced, articulate and conscientious party in every aspect and every department of it’ hence, the non-response to some issues raised by oppositions.
A member of the ruling party PDP who was a guest on Sunrise Daily while discussing political issues surrounding the 2015 elections,Mr Isuwa boastfully refuted claims, that the ruling party is worried about being castigated for not being responsive to issues around the country, saying that the Peoples’ Democratic Party has always been very focused on developments, as it is part of the party’s major concerns and it is also reflecting on every sector of the economy except in non-PDP states.
“The PDP has never lost focus on in its concerns for developments; the newspapers are filled with decisions taken on daily on several aspects of the economy, power sector, roads, education sector
“For the fact that people have already given in to the aspect, that every single thing that has been done by a ruling party has to be criticised justly or unjustly, is not something the PDP is worried about”
The politician took a swipe at the APC-led states in terms of actualising the agendas stated in their manifestos before mounting seats of power in the states, in a case of the ‘kettle calling pot black’, where he analysed that the PDP states do better than the APC –led states, but the opposition still get to condemn the ruling party for non-development and developmental strategies in their respective states and the central government.
“The Nigerian people know that a lot of the things they are saying (APC), they don’t even believe in them, they can’t even do them, they don’t even know them, they don’t even have the slightest idea on how to get along to do them
“And we can see that in the states that control (APC), there is nothing to demonstrate what they accused the PDP of doing or not doing, that they have perfected it”.
He further compared PDP and APC states in terms of infrastructure development, where in his argument the PDP toppled the APC, while backing less-performing PDP states when taken up on the PDP states not performing.
