A former Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Vincent Ogbulafor, who once boasted that the party would rule for 60 years, said his prediction would have come true if the party had not made costly mistakes before the elections.
Ogbulafor, while speaking with the News Agency of Nigeria in Umuahia, accused his party of causing President Goodluck Jonathan’s loss in the last elections and called on the members of its National Working Committee to resign.
He said, “When I was the chairman, I controlled 28 states and a majority in the National Assembly and also won additional four states for the party.
“Some of us performed better and had good ideas on how to keep the PDP in power for as long as I predicted.
“I made the prediction in clear conscience and realisation that it was achievable, given that the PDP controlled 28 states, majority in the National Assembly and local government administration.
“So, there is nothing that could have stopped PDP if we were able to control the line-up.’’
