A Former Deputy National Publicity Secretary of Nigeria’s biggest opposition party, the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Mr. Bode Ojomu, joined the race for the party’s National Publicity Secretary this week, declaring that President Muhammadu Buhari and his All Progressives Congress, APC, should be made to pack their bags in 2019 when the next general elections hold.
The National Convention of the PDP is billed for August 17 in Port Harcourt, Rivers state, although the event is being challenged by Mr. Modu-Sheriff, the factional leader of the other PDP.
Fiery preacher and catholic priest, Ejike Mbaka, has already warned President Buhari in a surprising message to his congregation that he should forget about coming back into 2019 if poverty and general hardship continued to metastasize.
