PDP is Not Dead -Aliyu



The outgoing Governor of Niger State, Babangida Aliyu, on Wednesday  declared that the Peoples Democratic Party is not dead.
He said the party would come back in 2019 to take what it lost in this year’s elections.
Aliyu, who made this declaration when the Umar Nasko Campaign Organization, led by Alhaji Aminu Wushishi, visited him in Government House, Minna, said the PDP would meet at state and federal levels to correct its mistakes.
“Our party is not dead. When all these cools down, we will properly re-organise to bring PDP back to its formidable political strength. Many things have happened and this is not the time for us to apportion blame.
“I therefore hope that when we will have to re-organise our party, we would add ideology to what we have. Let me urge you to stop thinking you have failed. In terms of elections, particularly the time we found ourselves, it went beyond the limits of individual effort,” he said.
Speaking on the outcome of the 2015 elections, Aliyu expressed satisfaction.
He thanked the Niger State electorate for conducting themselves in the most peaceful manner, adding that the elections were free and fair, devoid of electoral violence.
Earlier at the meeting, Wushishi hailed Aliyu over the way and manner he took the elections despite that the results were not in favour of the PDP.
He said the governor exhibited the character of a good leader.
He urged Aliyu not to be discouraged by the results, adding that he had done well in the area of dividend of democracy.
He said the challenge was that the Nigerias electorate were “conclusive” in the area of voting for a particular political party, regardless the qualities of their candidates.
