APC Formation Shaking PDP To Its Foundation: Party To Embark on ‘Reconciliation’ Tours; BOT Chair Anenih To Beg Obasanjo

By SaharaReporters, New York

The leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), increasingly feeling the pressure stemming from the formation of the All Progressive Congress (APC), has held an emergency meeting of its fractious National Working Committee (NWC).

The party’s troubled National Chairman, Alhaji Bamanga Tukur, who also heads the NWC, hosted the meeting at his Wuse II residence in Abuja on Sunday night.

Our sources say that at the top of the agenda was the subject of zonal reconciliation tours aimed at assuaging aggrieved members of the party.  Attendees were reportedly unhappy that their efforts to dissuade some opposition governors to join them had failed. The NWC is to design the reconciliation programme for the six geo-political zones of the country.

Even the promise by President Goodluck Jonathan to select one of the three APC governors from the North to be his running mate in 2015 was said to have been roundly rejected by the angry governors who are deeply unhappy at his leadership.

It has also been learned that the National Caucus committee of the party, which met in Abuja on Wednesday night, mandated the new Chairman of the Board of Trustees, Chief Tony Anenih, to reach out to some aggrieved members of the party, including former President Olusegun Obasanjo and Theophilus Danjuma, who have both been critical of Jonathan’s leadership.

On Monday, PDP governors, who are increasingly spending more time in Abuja than in their States, are to meet again in Abuja to look at the crisis rocking the party and advise both the President and the NWC on the way forward.

APC is not Different from PDP

There is no difference between the APC and the PDP, only in name. Tinubu, Buhari cannot attract votes in Nigeria.We are still watching.

Mere talks ...

If people are sincere about their complains and want an end to these national insecurities, then they will have opportunity to prove it by voting OUT PDP in 2015. Else, all these talks are mere 'face making'. Let's wait and see if PDP will not win 2015 after sharing money to village, clan and regional leaders to force their people to vote for PDP.

Even the APC will not be able to stand PDP. Remember even Nuhu Ribadu was sold off by his own party leaders for money! And it's some of the same leaders that are creating APC. I have my doubts and its a personal opinion.

BUHARI SHOULD PLAY FATHERLY ROLE IN APC IF PDP MUST BE KICKED OU

The winning combination for APC is the comrade governor of Edo and Ribadu. This is to assure the SS that Nigeria is not against her because of GEJ and enlist their co-operation for the survival of Nigeria. Any association with boko haram will inflame issues. We all want PDP out and there is need to preserve for Nigerianness to prevail in all our actions. God bless Nigeria.

Nigeria still remains one entity

Let us put religious and tribal sentiments apart on the issue of who rules us! It doesn't matter where Nigeria's president comes from, what we desire is good governance as Nigerian keep seriously suffering in the hand of present government and corruption is now deeply rooted!

APC is an expired drug-with Yerima, tinubu and buhari? haba!

I don't really understand how a party headed by a man who defiled the innocent laps of a 13 years old Egyptian gal with his corrupt 60yrs old blood cells-could pose a threat to Jonathan. How can Senator Yerima whose ideas gave birth to Sharia law in Zamfara and which led to the amputation of the hand of petty thieves be seen as the party to sack GEJ from Aso Rock? Sentiments apart-even agberos would not steal a glance at the direction of APC in 2015-APC whose only trade mark is the same old gra gra-politics of old? No clear vision-has no respect for the views of the minority groups in Nigeria/ Haba such-cannot and will never win elections-d 3 old regions do not and cannot make 9ja! Perhaps they do in Osun , Zamfara and katsina-but not in the 9ja that I know-who expired drugs like tinubu, buhari and Yerima? I begi! make we hear better word!

APC IS A REGIONAL; PARTY HEADED BY AMPUTEE YERIMA

Even @wahala will convert to Islam if APC get to aso villa...

Forget those who joined APC from APGA for their political interests, and must run away when not made presidential candidates of the merger.
Count the principals of APC: Tinubu, Fashola, Aregbesola, Buhari, El-Rufai, etc., what does that show you?

We have been battling those that tell us that it is either we embrace Islam or nothing. 2015 Nigerians must surely say no to Aso Rock to people who may have any shred of sympathy for religious extremists - APC.

Now look at PDP, it is a conglomerate of Nigerians from all shades and colour: Muslims, Christians, Atheists, name it. What does that tell you? I, like many others may not be too much in love with PDP, but have no choice, so APC is in no way a threat to PDP come 2015.

Vote GEJ for the continuation of the transformational agenda or vote APC for the continuation of the spate of bombings, terrorism and wantom stealings of SE&SS oil blocks by the Hausa-fulanis.

Vote APC, vote boko haram and naija becomes an Islamic state...

APC or whatever they call themselves seem to be unmasking their true nature little by little. Their nature is to gain power at all cost and if that does not work, discredit the government in power by all means and if that still fails, gang up with all sorts of criminals and even terrorists to cause headache for the ruling party and GEJ. That headache, the so-called APC couldn't heal when it was a medicine, neither can it solve now that it claims to be a party. I used to wonder why a party that prides itself as progressive would join forces with a religious bigot and confirmed autocrat and terrorist like Buhari. Now I know that they are certainly birds of the same feather.

@Ken, relationship between

@Ken, relationship between the Yorubas and Igbos are not this bad until Chinua Achebe published his "There was a Country." Igbos instaed of strategizing to take a shot at the presidency are blindfoldedly in support of Jonathan despite his abysmal performance as president of Nigeria.

Nigeria Tribal politics in all time low. APC = Tribes conspira

As Yoruba and Igbo seem to be busy scheming for which is more 'shophischicated' and intelligent than the other, at the same time they create some unprecedented enmity between themselves.
That has now left them pawns on the political tables of the Hausa/Fulani. Many Yorubas now see it expedient to ally with the Hausa/Fulani to have Hausa/Fulani recover Aso Rock 2015 at Nigeria's detriment. And ever-foxy Hausa/Fulani have since seen it as a duty not to end any sentence without addressing the Yoruba as a most - thoughtful, intelligent, rich, graceful, sophisticated, educated in Nigeria. Name any accolade now Hausa/Fulani has it for the Yoruba; all aimed at fooling Yoruba so that it will help Hausa/Fulani to recover their property - Aso Rock - in 2015. Nigeria's politics has come down to an all time tribal low.

Buhari/Fashola 2015 Ticket? Dead on Arrival!

This talk of Buhari/Fashola ticket for 2015 is funny. It is dead on arrival! Guess why?

@ Bojuri, Annenih is an irritant ant in the eyes of God! (2)

Annenih is a puny man, LIKE an irritant ant in the eyes of God.

Isaiah 45:6-7 'That people may know, from the rising of the sun and from the west, that there is none besides me; I am the Lord, and there is no other. I form light and create darkness, I make well-being and create calamity, I am the Lord, who does all these things.'

Jeremiah 29:11 'For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope '

With all the powers of the PDP and occultic gods, Psalm 22:28 says 'For kingship belongs to the Lord,and he rules over the nations.'

Annenih is a puny man, an irritant ant in the eyes of God.

Matthew 6:34 “Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble."

Finally, Psalm 115:3 'Our God is in the heavens; he does all that he pleases.'

@ fools like Sumanguru : The Devil is a Devil

@Sumanguru :
Frypan or fire, you're still roasted. No difference abi? So, what solution are you profering with your sycophancy about the evil PDP? Compare the devils we know:

Anenih ....N300bn. (stolen as Works Minister)
Tukur ....N1.7tr. (stolen via sons in subsidy fraud)
Dumbo ....$67bn. (stolen Foreign Reserve, Malabu)
Golden Goose (NNPC Czarina): Currently stealing 400,000bpd from Bayelsa Loading Terminal.

PDP Thieves Emeritus:
OBJ, Atiku (shared $18bn NEPA); IBB, ($12bn oyel windfall, Dele Giwa); Abdulsalam A. (Looted unspecified amt from the dead looter, Abach) Jubril Aminu, (Haliburton); Bode George, (NPA); Mark-Bankole (stole N50bn using NASS), etc

PDP Snr. Crumbies : Orubebe, Odonto, Otti, Maku, Doyin, Abati et al.
PDP Jnr. Crumbies : Deri, OC, Stanley Igwe, Dumbo-4ever, Ken Mani, Akpos1, Oleku, et al.

Seriously, tell us who aong the above-named has "scrupples". Wacko clown!

@ Bojuri, Annenih is an irritant ant in the eyes of God! (1)

@Bojuri in "Killer Machine", you said 'With Anenih in the saddle again, his killer machine will be put to work. Assasinations are part of the game and... Mr Fix it was made NPA Chairman and PDP-BOT Chairman for no other reason other than that Goodluck must win 2015 election and Anenih will stop at nothing to ensure this happens.'

Annenih is a puny man, LIKE an irritant ant in the eyes of God. Did God not say in Isaiah 41:10"Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand"

Romans 8:28 "And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose."

@Alli Pedro:Fashola/Buhari? Dishonesty shall ever make you fail.

@Alli Pedro,
In 1999 we all lined up behind two southwesterners in the two most prominent Nigerian political parties for president, and we gave it to OBJ after the election. It was because we recognized that Nigeria is made up different large ethnic groups, and that each of the groups can never be discountenanced in any national calculations. Above all, the groups must be placated for peace to reign. The three northern zones all together had led Nigeria for decades. GEJ now represents the minority, and in your calculations for GEJ's successor, all that came to your mind was Buhari/Fashola or Fashola/Buhari for Aso Rock 2015. Be told: It is an Igbo presidential candidate for APC in 2015, if not APC shall still remain in opposition after 2015 elections. Why: Because injustice makes any enterprise fail woefully. Inequity, injustice and people like you are fast making Nigeria a failed state, do not think it is Boko Haram that is making Nigeria a failed state. So repent.

U r a Fool

I wonder when your likes will stop attaching religion to everything, Fashola, Oshiomole & Lamido are all muslims yet the best performing governors and your so called christians are busy looting the country dry.
Pls cover your face in shame and start thinking like a human being, we have all seen where GEJ has led the country, i'm a christian and does not care your religion but be pro people.

PDP is enemy of Nigeria and Nigerians

The good people of our beloved country must realize that the main source of their woes in the last fourteen-odd years is the PDP mafia and its owners. Under successive kleptocracies, starting with that of the former tyrant, Obasanjo, the election-rigging sadists of the PDP have looted the nation blind and destroyed its infrastructures as well as strategic institutions. Nigeria is a failed state today principally as a result of clueless, incompetent and corrupt PDP characters like bro Jonathan and his useless, anti-people PDP regime. The APC constitutes a clear and salutary response to the hopelessness and evil as represented by PDP criminals and thieves like the Satanic and roguish Anenih, Obasanjo and bro Jonathan. The days of the devilish and destructive PDP are numbered. Let's mobilize to send the crooks packing. They are Nigeria's enemy number 1.

Na wa

Brain dey pain u? Rochas?

Re: fools like ikimi

You must be an illiterate, ethnic jingoist. You know there are people who will not believe in God even if they saw him; it's people like you. Deaf, dumb and blind. The carcass of this world.

RIP PDP1

RIP PDP! Rest in pieces.  Die hard.

APC alive!

Ikimi is different from Tony Aneni. Ikimi help installed Oshiomole in my state and thereafter gave him free hand to run the state and today Edo state is better than what it was under Mr. fix it and Igbenedion.
Today 1000 Aneni cannot deceive Edolite to accept papa deceive pickin party. Aneni is an enemy of Edo state masses so are his followers including badluck.
For all I care Aneni can join badluck to be president of the creek beyond 2015. No place for his likes in Edo state.

pdp bye bye

Am nt in suport of the formation as you said bcus PDP as a plan B,if our beloved Newly party(APC) want 2 win 2015 general election dey should use smbody like Rochas,Fashola as their presidentail candident bcus I knw vry well dat Nigeria will not suport Buhari.....UP APC my beloved party

A day in Politics is a long time! Will PDP ORGY be over soon?

What alternative is there? I am not putting much hope on APC, given the background history of some of those involved in the party formation. On the other hand, one cannot rely on the adage that 'the devil you know is better than the one you don't', for PDP has over the last 12 years completely failed to live up to the expectations of the people, instead they have with impunity, acted as animals drunken with power and money as portrayed in the clip - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D5E5TjkDvU0

PDP is now acting desperate and irrational.

These tours and meeting will convince nobody. All their strategists need to do is to let their PEOPLE do the right thing.

How?
a) Clamp on corruption and they should be fair about it.
b) STRONGLY advise their governors to focus on people-oriented programs.

A day in Politics is a long time!

Otherwise, come 2015, PDP ORGY will be over and they will have to contend with the hangover of their reckless political adventure!

DEVIL U KNOW BETTER THAN ANGEL U DO NOT KNOW. APC SUSPICIOUS!

APC's intention is still suspicious. Its members are mostly proponents of strict Islamic values for Nigeria. Fashola, Tinubu, Buhari, Aregbesole, el -Rufai, etc., name them, the Muslim list is endless; APC has Islamic colouration. We know the battles we have been doing in Nigeria with Islamic extremists that want to convert all of us in Nigeria to Islam. So giving Nigeria on a platter of APC to known hard-core Islam proponents is bad. PDP has succeeded in keeping Nigeria one, if for nothing else. It is a national party. But APC is not a national party - forget that Okorocha, Udenwa & Ngige presence. Any time APC fails to make Okorocha a presidential candidate he shall disappear from the party. He has a record on that. PDP still appears the party to lead Nigeria post 2015.

APC's OBJECTIVE? RETURN POWER TO BORN TO RULE ISLAMISTS?

Many today believe that APC's primary objective is to return Nigeria's apex political power to Born To Rule and its Islamist Jihadists. Future shall tell. Any day it dawns on Nigerians that APC is having a corenortherner (12 sharia states) as presidential flag bearer in 2015, that's the day APC shall be consigned to oblivion. This core north has led Nigeria for decades and look at where we are today.

Yes to APC. Yes Yes to Fashola/Buhari, Buhari/Fashola Ticket

I support the formation of APC. United we stand. we need a formidable party that can successfully challenge the status quo.

I will throw all my weight & that of my village behind the APC if they select flag bearers of tested repute and not those whose hands are soiled in ill-gotten gains. There are still some folks with integrity in Nigeria. Regardless of the name calling Buhari, Fashola, Oshiomole, come to mind.

Kudos to Asiwaju & other underground citizens of Nigeria, party leaders etc working tirelessly, setting aside things that divide us and focusing on the common good to make this happen.

APC DEAD

When pedophile Yerima is a big catch in APC, Ikimi is another one there, and just anyone who fell out in contract issues with the PDP gurus,. Combine all these and what you get is LANDSLIDE LOOTING if APC wins. so fellow Nigerians do away with PDP, but crush and destroy APC on arrival
