A Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, chieftain and Delta State governorship aspirant in 2007 general elections, Chief Sunny Onuesoke, has said that the Supreme Court confirmation of Ahmed Markafi’s PDP faction as the authentic leader of the party signifies the death of All Progressives Congress, APC, as the ruling party in Nigeria.
In a telephone chat from Abuja, where he witnessed the decision of the Supreme Court upholding Markafi as the authentic leader of the party, elated Onuesoke said that members of APC must be in pains right now, adding that their reign will soon be over.
He argued that considering the apparent failure of APC in governance and recent Supreme Court judgment, it was glaring that PDP can rise from the ashes to win 2019 general election.
“I love the Supreme Court decision. Shame on APC and their stooge in the PDP. Come 2019, Nigerians are voting out APC, a poverty stricken party of never do wells,” he stated.
Onuesoke said that the decision of the apex court was evidence that the judiciary is the last hope of the helpless in Nigeria, adding that the principle of checks and balances still reign supreme in Nigeria’s constitution.
“This judgment is victory to democracy, 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 noted.
The PDP Chieftain who said he see change in Aso rock come 2019, congratulated all PDP members on the victory, stressing that politics in the country will assume a different outlook from now onward as the battle line has been drawn.
“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,” Onuesoke noted.
