Lawmaker laments fate of party in 2019
As the implosion in the opposition People’s Democratic Party (PDP) continues to unravel and the continuous defections hitting the party, a lawmaker has conceded that the party will be weakened by 2019 when the next general elections is scheduled to hold.
Hon. Rimamnde Kwewum, representing Donga/Ussa/Takum Federal constituency of Taraba state in a chat with Galaxy television in Abuja says the future of the PDP is now hinged on the outcome of the Supreme Court ruling on the power tussle between Ahmed Makarfi and Ali-Modu Sherriff.
The lawmaker who is a member of the PDP says wherever the pendulum of justice swings at the end of the day, his party will be worse off.
Hon. Kwewum said the ruling APC will not be spared from its own fair share of crises.
The crises in the PDP took a new twist days ago when Ekiti state governor, Ayo Fayose expressed his intention to defect from the party and a member of the House of Representatives from Plateau State switching allegiance to the APC.
