Nigeria: Jonathan’ll lose in 2015 –APC chief
A chieftain of the All Progressive Congress in Lagos State, Chief Ayo Akande, has said that President Goodluck Jonathan will lose the 2015 election given the factionalisation of the President’s Peoples Democratic Party.
In a statement in Lagos on Sunday, Akande said Jonathan had focused more on the crisis in the PDP than finding solutions to the economic and infrastructural problems facing the country.
He said, “President Jonathan has not impressed the citizens with the performance of his government. Many that voted for him in the 2011 election have been disappointed.
“Even if his party gives him automatic ticket for the 2015 election he cannot win. The President’s low performance apart, there is no President that can win a credible poll with a factionalised party on the eve of election.
“The PDP has become a divided house, with one faction fighting the other. The President now spends his time trying to patch the PDP’s tattered umbrella such that he has no time for the worsening state of the economy and insecurity in the country. He will definitely lose the 2015 election and if by any means he wins then there are questions to be answered.”
The APC chief said there was no way the PDP could win the Presidency again given the performance of the party at the federal level since 1999.
“The PDP has imposed to much of social, economic and political misery on the people since 1999 for the electorate to vote for the party again,” he said.
Akande said the common man in the country would continue to suffer except there was a change at the very top of governance in the country.
