There is some air of confidence around Nigerian Governors from the Peoples’ Democratic Party, PDP, that the party will in 2019 take back Aso Rock from the All Progressives Congress.
APC dislodged PDP back in 2015 after it held power for 16 consecutive years.
The PDP governors rising from a meeting with the leaders of the party from across the country held at the Enugu State Government House said that the party was set again to wrest power from the APC at the centre.
The PDP Governors Forum Chairman and governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, who briefed newsmen after the meeting that lasted from 6:00 p.m. (Sunday evening) to 12:08 a.m. (Monday morning) said that the party is equally ready to win the Anambra governorship election slated to hold on Saturday.
On the agreements reached at the meeting, he said: “We have equally agreed believing that we have what it takes to take over Anambra and I believe that our people in Anambra have worked very well to deserve victory.
“We are using this opportunity to ask that, that election should be credible, not only being credible, but must be seen to be credible.
“We want to believe that Nigeria is of age to do an election that is acceptable internationally, home and abroad, and we want to believe that we will take the day on the 18th of this month in the Anambra governorship election.”
