Jonathan's Aide Okupe Says PDP Is Dying: We’ll Be At PDP’s Graveside

The emerge of Ali Modu Sheriff as chairman of the PDP is really causing a lot of discomfort for some who have served in top capacities in the PDP and the Presidency in the past administration.

A spokesperson for ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, Doyin Okupe, says the choice of Sheriff as the acting national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party is a very wrong move.

He said it's unfortunate that PDP is in the habit of making grave errors.

He said with the emergence of Sheriff as the national chairman of the PDP, the opposition party risked total disintegration. In an article published on his official Facebook page on Wednesday, he said the "controversial" former governor lacked the capability to hold the party together.

Okupe said, “Some of us have vowed not to leave the party (PDP). We still will not leave the party. We will continue to engage all who care to listen and seek help from everyone ready to revive this severely challenged sickened giant.

“For a morose political party, thanks to the overwhelming and effective propaganda machinery of the party in power, this may yet be the mortal wound that may cause the eventual depletion of its long perplexed following.

But if it is the divine will of God that our present masters must kill the PDP, then by the grace of God, we shall yet tarry at the graveside to bid it farewell.”

He lamented that making wrong judgments had become a trait of the party. “The capability of our party, the PDP, and its leadership to make grave errors in judgment is legendary. What is intriguing is that even when the party is out of power, that tendency seems not to reduce.

He added: “Alhaji Sheriff is a long-standing political associate of mine and a very astute politician of, perhaps, a sublime class. But for the post of the national chairman of the PDP, he is a wrong candidate and (he is) also coming in at a wrong time.”
