The Deputy Senate President, Senator Ike Ekweremadu has described the newly registered All Progressives Congress, APC as a gang up that will soon collapse and come back to the PDP.
The Deputy Senate President, who spoke yesterday during the signing of a memorandum of understanding between the National Institute for Legislative Studies and the University of Benin at the National Assembly on how to offer post graduate diploma and masters degree programmes in Legislative Studies, Parliamentary administration and legislative Drafting, noted that the PDP are not worried over the new Party’s emergence, saying with the merger, elections are now narrowed to the duo of PDP and APC.
“We are not worried about the APC, for us that makes the game more interesting. Before, we used to contend with several parties and now we have just only one party to contend with and it makes the matter much easier for us.
“You know in Nigerian politics, gang-up never works. So, they will split and they will still come back to us in the PDP and we will welcome them,” he said.
Ekweremadu also observed that the crisis rocking the PDP will soon fizzle out, as such is typical of complex organizations.
“The PDP is a big party and once you have a big party, you are going to have a complex situation. It is the ability to manage those complex situations that will determine how far you can go in the future. So, we are hopeful that we are going to surmount them and work as a team to work towards 2015,” he added.
