Sunny Onuesoke, a Delta state chieftain of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has taken a swipe at the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), over the Supreme Court judgement reinstating Ahmed Makarfi as the authentic leader of the PDP.
According to reports, Onuesoke said Makarfi’s victory heralded the end of the APC’s hold on power; and members of the ruling party must be in pains over the judgement.
The PDP chieftain made his comments in Abuja on Wednesday, July 12.
He stated: “I love the Supreme Court decision. Shame is on APC and their stooges in the PDP. I am certain they must be reeling in pains right now.
“Come 2019, Nigerians are voting out APC, a poverty stricken party of never do wells.
“The decision of the apex court was evidence that the judiciary is the last hope of the helpless in Nigeria.
“The principle of checks and balances still reigns supreme in Nigeria’s constitution.
“This judgment is a victory for democracy, and a loss to dictatorship and one-party state in Nigeria.
“It is victory to the true and real national political party, PDP, that unifies rather than divides.
“Nigeria is back from its slumber. Good opposition is what makes a democracy a healthy one.”
Onuesoke congratulated all members of the PDP, and stated that come 2019, he sees a change in Aso Rock.
He stressed that the battle line had been drawn, and that the Nigerian political team would assume a new outlook now.
He stated: “I am happy for Markafi’s dogged follow up without giving up despite frustration from Sheriff’s camp.
“APC should get ready for real politics. Without opposition, leadership was hectic for APC.
“Now that PDP is back, they will be buried totally.”
