2019 Shocker!!! APC Surrenders As Buhari Bows To Pressure, Ready To Hand Over Power To New Successor

President Muhammadu Buhari, has been under pressure by the yet to be registered political party, popularly known as the ‘mega party’ and the Senator Ahmed Makarfi-led Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, to hand over power, come 2019.

This pressure heightened, as members of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, recently accepted that Nigerians are passing through tough times under the present administration.

Post-Nigeria learnt on Wednesday, January 18, that the mega party has more political heavyweights, including key figures in the APC, who are waiting in the wings, and plotting to toast Buhari out of power.

A source within the party, said it was putting everything in place, “to position itself as a beautiful bride”, ready to be embraced by all Nigerians, in the event that the current realignment of political forces within the APC and PDP results in their disintegration, as Political Analysts have predicted.

Meanwhile, the Chairman of the Caretaker Committee of the PDP, Senator Ahmed Makarfi, has said that Nigerians have been regretting voting PDP out of power, in the 2015 general elections.

According to him, some Nigerians are already apologising for voting the party out, saying however, that they have another opportunity to vote the PDP back in power, in 2019.

Makarfi, who spoke at a party function in Abuja, on Wednesday, said the PDP was in the process of re-branding and re-strategising, ahead of 2019.

He said: “We are reviewing and re-branding the party, it is only the judgment in Port Harcourt we are waiting for, and we are praying for a fair judgment that will revive the hope of the people.

“Justice should be done and seen to be done in a manner that the whole world will see that the Judiciary is doing the right thing.

“If you eliminate or encumber the opposition, nobody will be safe. It is for the interest of Nigeria that there is opposition.

“Some people are already apologising for voting us out of office, but we are telling them to vote for us again”.

He advised his fellow party members to criticize wisely, and to also come up with alternative policy options. He warned party members against blackmail.

Makarfi added, that the party will reconcile on a strong foundation, stressing that the PDP would avoid loopholes in its reconciliation drive.
