The presidency has reacted to Amaechi’s statement that the Peoples’ Democratic Party will never win elections in Nigeria again if it does not rig elections.
The presidency described Amaechi’s statement as wishful thinking.
The Special Adviser to the President on Political Matters, Mr Ahmed Gulak said that the PDP would convincingly win the forthcoming general elections.
He stated, “I can assure you that the PDP will win the next general elections and form the government at the federal level. The PDP is the only organized national party in the country. It is the party to beat.”
Mr Gulak also described the All Progressives Congress as strange bed fellows.
He remarked, “The APC is a bed of strange fellows. You know that they have started experiencing crisis. Go to Sokoto state, they have two offices already. That is happening in some other states.”
It is important to mention that Rotimi Amaechi the governor of Rivers state had said in an interview with journalists that unless the PDP rigged the 2015 elections, it would not win.
