Speaking in Port Harcourt, River state, Mr. Ojuogbo said his party would return to power because the APC is dwindling in crisis, disagreements concerning the National Assembly leadership.
He said the APC lacks coordination and ideology to handle the crisis.
According to Premium Times, Ojuogbo said former governor of Kaduna State, Ahmed Makarfi, has been appointed to head a panel charged with working out modalities on how the PDP can regain power at the centre during the 2019 general elections had been set up.
He further stated that the PDP would win its current battle in the tribunal to keep its victory in Akwa Ibom and Rivers State despite alleged intimidation.
“Rivers and Akwa Ibom State tribunals are sitting in Abuja,” Mr. Ojougbo said. “No amount of intimidation will make the PDP lose the elections it won freely and fairly in these states. Any move to rig us out will be resisted.”
He stressed the PDP’s opposition to the appointment of Amina Zakari as the acting Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission.
“We have said that the appointment of Amina is completely unacceptable to us. The example that ex-President (Goodluck) Jonathan gave should be followed. We know Amina is not apolitical.”
