PDP crisis, divine intervention — CNPP

- Admin

 The Conference of Nigerian Political Parties, CNPP, has described the crisis rocking the ruling People’s Democratic Party, PDP, “as God’s divine intervention to liberate the ordinary Nigerian from years of deprivation, repression and maladministration by a class that has held Nigerians captive.”

 

The Benue State chairman of CNPP, Baba Agan, who spoke to Vanguard, Tuesday, in Makurdi, the Benue State capital, said “what we are seeing in the acclaimed biggest party in Africa is a clear indication that it is only God that rules in the affairs of men. Nigerians are suffering in the midst of plenty and those ruling us have not taken it upon themselves to assiduously address these pains the people are living with.

“We daily hear of so much money coming into the country, yet it has not translated to a better condition of living for the ordinary man in the streets and you think God is happy?

 

“We are not saying that those leading the revolt within the party are better but the laud celebration that greeted their action from Nigerians clearly shows that the people are happy with the steps they have taken.

”Nigerians are going through suffocating hardship and our leaders are living in affluence without regards for the feelings of the people, but with this development there could be respite at the end of the day.

 

“You must understand that if those at the helm of affairs are doing well, majority of Nigerians would have kicked against the revolt within the party; but that is not the case at the moment; look at what is happening in Rivers and Taraba states and elsewhere and you’ll begin to ask yourself some basic questions. I recall vividly that there was a time a barrel of crude oil sold at the international market for as low as $20 and Nigerians never faced the kind of hardship they are confronted with today.

 

”It clearly shows that the those at the helm of affairs and currently in control of the PDP have lost touch with the people and fully legalized corruption in Nigeria and by so doing made us a mockery before the international community. I urge our leaders to visit a neigbouring countries like Ghana which was several years behind Nigeria in terms of development. But go there today and you will lament our situation in this country, all because of bad leadership and they think that God will not hear the cry of the masses. The truth is that the end of PDP has finally come.”
