Former President, Goodluck Jonathan, has on Saturday, sent a strong warning to the President Muhammadu Buhari-led All Progressives Congress, APC, to never again intimidate the members of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, or be ready for a showdown.
Jonathan sent this warning during the PDP National non-Election Convention, currently being held at the Eagle Square, Abuja.
Jonathan who stormed the podium, flanked by his former Vice, Namadi Sambo, declared that the PDP is now ready to kick out the APC out of Aso villa, in 2019, hence is no longer afraid of intimidation.
“I want to send a strong warning to the Buhari-led APC, never again to intimidate the PDP members, because the opposition party is ready to take over power. We won’t be afraid of any intimidation.”
Jonathan who spoke amidst the cheering crowd said that PDP during its sixteen years in power was able to take Nigeria to a greater height.
”With PDP, there will be no more hunger, no poverty, no joblessness, because we have creative minds who can turn things around. I believe in PDP, and God also believes in PDP. I repeat, no PDP member should be intimidated, because we will resist it. God Is with us.”
‘It is disingenuous to accuse everyone who calls for restructuring as trying to break up the county. History tells us that that kind of cheap blackmail will not work as long as the underlying reasons for the agitations persist.’
‘The biggest challenge seems to be that we seem to be allowing moderate voices on this issue to be drowned out by the reckless utterances of a few rabble rousers on all sides who may be tools in the hands of those who do not wish this country well. These are some of the people who arrogate to themselves the toga of spokespersons of our diverse groups.’
