Minister of Special Duties and Inter-Governmental Affairs, Alhaji Kabiru Turaki, SAN, has stated that the President Goodluck Jonathan’s led government had done well in so many areas, including the economy, transportation, agriculture and education, saying, that those who left the country in search of greener pasture are now returning home.
According to him, “Talking about the economy in concrete terms, there is real growth and a lot of confidence and a lot of people, who left Nigeria looking for greener pasture are coming back because they believe in the government of President Jonathan and the vision of the PDP.”
The Minister said this in a communiqué issued on Sunday by his Special Assistant (Media), Mr. Okey Muogbo, that the endless crisis rocking the ruling Peoples Democratic Party was because its leadership welcomes all shades of characters.
Turaki added that opposition parties, under the auspices of All Progressives Congress, would not be able to unseat the PDP in 2015.
Turaki, who also doubles as Chairman of the Presidential Committee on Dialogue and Peaceful Resolution of Security Challenges in the North, said, “The PDP has crises because as a party that accommodates people, it had allowed a lot of characters, who do not genuinely believe in its vision and manifesto but are merely looking for a platform through which to advance their ambitions.”
The Minister claimed that some undisclosed members of the PDP, are indulging in anti-party activities.
He said, “They came looking for tickets and when they got such, they think it is every thing. What they don’t know is that their activities are overheating the polity.
“They have started their acts of indiscipline so early, including their diversionary tactics, which are capable of taking the focus of leadership away from main things, including the issue of good governance.”
He insisted that the opposition would not take over power from the PDP,stating that they have been “running helter skelter, regrouping and abusing the PDP” because the party was beating their expectation.
He said, “When you see opposition regrouping and becoming restless, it leads to the conclusion that PDP is doing well and beating their expectation.
“Because President Goodluck Jonathan has given quality leadership, they came together to collaborate against us, but theirs is a marriage of inconvenience. Their members are diametrically opposed to one another” He had concluded
