Professor Taoheed Adedoja, the former minister of sports and special duties, has disclosed why Nigerians are clamoring for the Peoples Democratic Party ( PDP) to return to power in 2019.
According to Vanguard, Adedoja said Nigerians are yearning for PDP to return to power because they seemed not to have got what they needed from the President Muhammadu Buhari's government within two years.
NAIJ.com gathered that the former minister who made this known in Abuja said with discipline, the former ruling party will reclaim power in 2019.
He said: ''Sometimes, a party will rule for many years, the people in that country may not even want that party to come back again.
''Sometimes and depending on the country, they would let an opposition party to rule for another 16 years so that they can compare the two. But Nigerians are now in a hurry for PDP to come back only after two years. There is a reason for it.
''What Nigerians expect now is to give the PDP another opportunity to come back in 2019 to rule better. If therefore, Nigerians expect PDP to rule and rule better, the party platform in which the President of Nigeria will emerge must therefore be better, the process must be better and will involve a spectrum of PDP members.
''The 16 years that we were in power enabled the PDP to make a lot of positive changes in the lives of Nigerians in virtually all sectors of the economy-education, health, provision of infrastructure, changing the lifestyle of people including workers in this country in the area of agriculture, rural development, improvement in our railway system and the transportation system (air, road and sea).

''The PDP of today will bring us two things: the PDP of tomorrow and the new platform that will produce the President of Nigeria in 2019.
''Senator Ahmed Makarfi-led committee has promised Nigerians dividends of democracy better and that is why I have offered myself to lead the party to that promised manifesto; to lead the party to that promised reinvigoration of the aspirations of Nigerians in terms of their high expectations''.
