PORT HARCOURT—A chieftain of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Rivers State, Mr. Osi Olisa, has said former President, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan, willingly relinquished power to All Progressives Congress, APC, to expose the weaknesses of APC leaders.
Olisa, who is the Local Government Chairman of Ogba/Ndoni/Egbema Local Government Area, ONELGA, of the state, noted that APC, before its emergence in 2015, had mounted pressure on the PDP government, claiming to have the ability to stabilise the country, but noted that Jonathan allowed them the opportunity to prove a point to Nigerians.
Olisa, who spoke in Port Harcourt yesterday, was responding to claims that over 100 members of PDP defected to APC in ONELGA, noting that Nigerians were tired of the promised change, adding that no sane individual will want to join APC in the face of the worsening hunger.
He said: “What the former President, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan, did was to willingly relinquish power to APC so that people will know that all they (APC) are promising will not be fulfilled.
“As it stands, that point has been proven that APC cannot save this country. People are tired of APC and they want to join PDP; nobody in ONELGA has left PDP.”
