PDP reps; We‘ll retake Aso Rock in 2019

The members of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) caucus in the House of Representative on Thursday declared that there is a vacancy in Aso Rock and that the Party will take over the government in 2019.

According to them, the resolution of the crisis that rocked the party for more than a year by the supreme court on Wednesday has set the stage for the party to commence preparation for the 2019 general elections.

The members lead by Minority Leader, Mr. Leo Ogor, described the judgment as a “victory for democracy.”

Ogor, speaking at a news conference with the caucus members said, “By this turn of events, we can tell you that there is vacancy in Aso Rock.

The reps said the APC has “failed to improve the country’s situation better than it met it”, urging the ruling party to see the PDP’s legal victory as a quit notice.

“Nigerians tasted almost 16 years of PDP, they have tasted two years of APC but that is a journey Nigerians don’t want to continue with.

“Come 2019, we shall restore true democracy where governance belongs to the people.”

Ogor added that the APC has been “all promises and no action”, adding that it has “occasioned the impoverishment of Nigerians who now live in hunger and insecurity”.

“We believe that they will come back because there is no basis for not doing so, the ticket that got them to the house did not belong to them, it belongs to the party,” he said.
