Onyema Ugochukwu, the former special adviser on communication to ex-president Olusegun Obasanjo, said Nigerians are desirous of seeing the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) return to power in 2019.
According to The Nation, Ugochukwu said PDP is the only party that could put a stop to the pall of “confusion and uncertainty” in the country and run the government better.
NAIJ.com gathered that he made the remark while addressing journalists in Abeokuta, Ogun state.
Ugochukwu who was the former chairman of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), added that PDP remained the only party that could put a stop to the pall of “confusion and uncertainty” in the country and run the government better.
He said: ''We have to give some credit to the caretaker committee. The tendencies and all that are natural; every political party have people leaning to this way and that way.
''But they’ve been able to come together in the interest of the party to have peaceful congresses and that is a great thing.
''We are not expecting that everybody would be happy. You probably heard that some people went to court on Friday (to stop the congresses) but the court rejected them.

''But the great majority of our party people want to come together to end this period of confusion in the country because Nigerians are waiting for us to get our act together to run the government the way it should be run.
“We’ve gone round to some wards, not all of them. From what we saw, we are quite happy with the turnout. It just shows that the PDP is strong. That’s why people want to come out and participate. There were no impositions.''
Meanwhile, NAIJ.com had reported that Goodluck Jonathan, the former president, challenged the APC-led administration to a public debate over its claim that PDP did not do well in government from 1999 to 2015.
Jonathan also accused the ruling party of running a government of lies and propaganda.
