2019: PDP’s return’ll be difficult if…- Abati

A former Special Adviser to former President Goodluck Jonathan on Media and Publicity, Dr. Reuben Abati, has said the major opposition party in the country, the People Democratic Party, may not achieve its dream of returning to power in 2019, if it fails to address internal crisis
afflicting it.
Abati, who also described the ruling All Progressives Congress as a party that had not been able to develop into a party, said the coming back of PDP in 2019 might be sabotaged by its own internal contradictions.
“With the many challenges that the PDP administration has had, the PDP looks like it stands a good chance in 2019. But it may be sabotaged by
its own internal contradictions and I had called for an attempt to address those internal contradictions
frontally.”
Abati, who is a former Chairman of the Editorial Board of Guardian Newspapers, also blamed the APC for failing to keep to its electoral promises to Nigerians before assuming power.
“It is unfortunate the APC has not been able to graduate, to develop into a party per se. It is still a party of disparate interest,
conflict.
“It is a party that continues to implode within a lot of intrigues, with a lot of
suspicion. What you are likely to have in 2018 is the possibility of those intrigues in the APC that have been managed carefully coming to
the fore.
“On the other hand, you could also have the APC coming together as a stronger party in an attempt to hold on to power. But of all of those dynamics, of course, the question to ask is; how does it serve the interest of
Nigeria?”
