A former Governor of Adamawa State, Bala Ngillari, says the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) is dead and will be buried in 2023.
Ngillari said this in Yola at the state All Progressives Congress stakeholders meeting on Saturday.
The former governor defected to APC in 2020 and he was the PDP’s Adamawa North Senatorial Candidate at the 2019 general election.
“One of the reasons why I dumped PDP for APC is that PDP is a dying party. In fact, PDP is dead and it will be buried in 2023.
“Secondly, I don’t see PDP as an alternative for the future of Nigeria, because the contradictions in the party will make its members go to the graveyard and we will help them bury themselves.
“And the reason why I identified myself with APC is because of its laudable objectives that will take us to the promised land and give hope to our future generations,” Ngillari said.
He also added that other than APC, Nigeria has no alternative and that any nationalist who wants a better Nigeria should join APC in moving to the next level.
He said there was hope for Nigeria and its citizens under the APC-led Federal Government, urging progressive politicians across the country to rally around the party.
“I wish those who chose to remain in PDP well,” Ngillari said.
He said the APC currently has 90 per cent followership in Adamawa, assuring that the party would take over the state in 2023.
“Adamawa has abundant natural resources if properly harnessed, the resources would boost the economy of the state and the country at large,” he said.
He called on the people of Adamawa to support APC for the development of the state.
