National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief John Odigie-Oyegun has ruled out the possibility of the PDP bouncing back in 2019.
Oyegun in an interview with New Telegraph doubted the coming of Peoples Democratic Party as a strong political party in the country.
He said: “Well, let them come back first. I am not a theorist. If they bounce back, we will have to deal with that, but as at now, they are not bouncing back. PDP is in confusion. PDP is suffering a terminal illness. The party is unlikely to recover from this cancer that is afflicting them.
The division is a major illness; it is cancerous.”
When reminded that the PDP exuded such confidence with its boast of being in power for 60 years before its shocking defeat in the 2015 elections, the APC national chairman, said: “Well, I’m not clairvoyant; I’m not seeing into the future; it is the immediate future that I’m seeing. “

When new parties start developing, then you can ask me the question again. But as at now, the parties don’t exit.”
He, however, did not rule out the possibility of some members of the APC aligning with others to form a new party ahead of the next election, but insisted that they will not make any impact. His words: “APC has come to stay. As at today, strictly speaking there is no other party in the country.
