Abuja. – Still trying to recover from the defeat suffered by his party in the Presidential and National Assembly elections last week, National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, Alhaji Adamu Muazu, has admitted that the party was humbled by the loss.
The defeat notwithstanding, Muazu, who is fondly nicknamed ‘the Game Changer’ by his party faithful, has assured Nigerians that the PDP will be reformed to meet the expectations of its members and Nigerians.
According to the chairman, the ruling party has learnt lessons from its defeat and will never again let Nigerians down when it bounces back to power.
The chairman’s position was contained in a series of tweets he posted on his twitter handle #AM, and @Muazuaa
In one of the posts, Muazu said, “We are humbled by the 28th of March decision of many Nigerians and promise never again let you down. We will reform our party.
“We have learnt some very useful lessons with the March 28th elections and we want to assure Nigerians you will see a new PDP.
It will be recalled that the ruling party was defeated by opposition All Progressives Congress, APC, on the March 28 elections, which have thrown up former military ruler, Muhammadu Buhari, as the president-in-waiting and majority of members in the Senate and House of Representatives.
The development has halted calculations in the camp of the PDP, which had boasted that it would rule Nigeria for at least 60 years before ceding power to another party in the country.
With the conceding of defeat by President Goodluck Jonathan before the announcement of Buhari as the president-elect last Wednesday, the president might has foreclosed the idea of his party challenging the outcome of the election, which most of the international observers declared as credible and peaceful.
But the PDP has promised to return to the drawing board and return in a more formidable way in 2019 to take over from the APC.
