A former governor of Niger State, Abdulkadir Abdullahi Kure, has said that the PDP has learned from mistakes that led to its defeat in 2015 and has made amends ways ahead of 2019 general elections.
Speaking when he hosted stakeholders of the party in the state from Zone C, after their meeting with the State Working Committee (SWC), the former governor said that the failure of the APC to address challenges facing the country would also work to the advantage of his party in 2019.
Kure, who recalled that the defeat suffered by the PDP in the last election was due to internal wrangling, said that members were now united to take on the APC in future elections.
“It was PDP that defeated PDP in 2015 elections in Niger State, not the APC,” argued.
“It was due to internal problems in our party, but we have learned our lessons. With unity, we will conquer the government in power.”
He said that though the emergence of APC as the ruling party in Niger State had affected PDP’s zoning formula, the party would stick to its zoning arrangement, promising that a governorship candidate from Zone C would be supported to fly the party’s flag in 2019.
