Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has credible people that could defeat President Muhammadu Buhari in the 2019 Presidential election, accordint to Senenato Ighoyota Amori.
Amori who is the Political Adviser to PDP National Chairman, said this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja on Sunday.
“PDP is national party. There is no ward, village or unit in this country you will not find PDP, meaning that it is a Nigerian party.
“Unless you say you cannot find a credible candidate from across the entire country.
“I can tell you that we have more than enough credible candidates or aspirants in PDP for the presidential race.’’
Amori said it was already known that the All Progressives Congress (APC) had only “one candidate which would be President Muhammadu Buhari.
“PDP has so many aspirants and the best of the aspirants will defeat Buhari in 2019.’’
He, however, alleged that the APC-led government was now doing media trial of PDP aspirants while protecting its (APC) members who were “fingered as corrupt.”
“APC is a party where only a person who has something to hide goes there and become a saint immediately.
“If you look at all the people that left PDP because they were being hunted, the moment they join the ruling party they become saints. Once you join APC nobody can prosecute you.
Amori, who spoke on the acceptability of PDP after its 2017 national convention said, “rebranded PDP still remain an acceptable and embraced party to the citizens.
