PDP remains a party to beat come 2015 – President Jonathan

President Goodluck Jonathan has said that the crisis rocking the ruling Peoples Democratic Party, PDP notwithstanding, it remains the party to beat in the country come 2015.

The President made the disclosure in Paris in an interview with Newsmen.

The President granted the interview shortly before departing Paris to Abuja at the close of a two-day summit on peace and security in Africa, hosted by President Francois Hollande of France.

President Jonathan was reacting to the recent defection of some of the seven aggrieved governors of the PDP to the opposition All Progressive Congress, APC.

He said that while the party would continue to pursue the path of reconciliation, the move by the governors would not hamper the success of the PDP in future elections.

The President said that the game of politics is dynamic and a governor elected by the people must not see himself as a king who can lord himself over the electorate.

The President clarified that not all the seven aggrieved governors have moved to the opposition party.

The seven aggrieved governors are Sule Lamido of Jigawa, Babangida Aliyu of Niger, Rotimi Amaechi of Rivers and Murtala Nyako of Adamawa.

Others are Govenor Abdulfatah Ahmed of Kwara, Governor Rabiu Kwankwaso of Kano and Governor Aliyu Wamakko of Sokoto State.

It would be recalled that Governor Lamido and Governor Aliyu had openly declared that they were not part of the announced merger of the group with the APC.
