Oh no! IBB shuns PDP 'count me out of your conference'

Choi... Former Nigerian military president, General Ibrahim Babangida has shunned the People's Democratic Party, PDP. IBB said he would be 78 years by 2019 and stated clearly yesterday that he has no intention of running as the PDP's presidential candidate at the 2019 elections, contrary to early insinuations.

Reacting to his appointment as Chairman of  the proposed PDP National Conference slated for tomorrow, Babangida urged the PDP to count him out of the conference saying that he had quit partisan politics four years ago when he marked 70 years. He said he had friends in the PDP and the All Progressives Congress, APC and playing the expected role would amount to partisanship.

Meanwhile, PDP Acting National Chairman, Prince Uche Secondus, yesterday admitted that the party made mistakes in the past and begged Nigerians for forgiveness.

Secondus, who spoke yesterday when he met with leaders, stakeholders, elders of PDP, led by former Senate President Ken Nnamani, said that politics was about the people and election.

According to him,  Nigerians should forgive the party for the many mistakes it made while in power, assuring that PDP was  repositioning and restructuring for the youths to take over and deliver on the vision and mission of the founding fathers.
