PDP chiefs may be expelled over Jonathan’s defeat

Report made it known that the Peoples Democratic Party has begun reviewing its performance in the March 28 presidential election with a view to arriving at what caused the defeat of President Goodluck Jonathan.

It was gathered in Abuja on Sunday night   that top members of the party were of the opinion that some of them in the National Working Committee and National Executive Committee, especially those from the North, covertly played roles that contributed to Jonathan’s loss.

A leader of the party said   that such members also connived with the All Progressives Congress to ensure that Jonathan was beaten at the polls.

The source, who asked not to be named,   hinted that any indicted members might be shown the way out of the PDP.

The party leader   said that many   of such members of the party seemed united in their determination   to ensure that Jonathan did not win the election.

The source added   that it was surprising that strongholds of the PDP in the North such as Plateau, Benue and Kogi states that have large Christian population, could fall to the APC.

He said, “The entire election was lost long before March 28 because northern elements, even those within the PDP, ganged up against President Jonathan. Even some of our leaders in the NEC and NWC   are  under watch because we believe they also worked against the President.

“There will be a meeting between our chairman, Adamu Mu’azu, and PDP state chairmen during the week, but as it is we do not even trust them.”
