Former vice-president, Atiku Abubakar has claimed that only the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has the strength to unseat the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
Atiku stated this when he paid a visit to former president, Goodluck Jonathan, on Wednesday.
Speaking with journalists after the meeting in Yenogoa, Bayelsa state, the former number two citizen said: “It is actually the PDP that has the strength and structure to get back to Aso Rock. There is no other party that has the structure and strength like the PDP. Without PDP, APC should not have been in Aso Rock.”
Jonathan, in a statement issued by his spokesman, Ilechukwu Eze, also stated that the party is better poised to win next year’s presidential election.
He said: “Yes, we had some issues in 2015. But as you know politics is a very dynamic business. I believe PDP is coming back and getting stronger.
“Even though we are in the opposition with fewer governors, PDP is still the strongest and largest party in the country.”
