A former Board of Trustees Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Tony Anenih, on Tuesday said the party would have remained in power but for selfish interest of some party members.
Anenih made the remark when the leadership of the Jerry Gana strategy review and inter-party affairs committee paid him a visit in Abuja.
The former Works Minister urged party members to forget about the Presidency until the tenure of President Muhammadu Buhari expires, adding that only God can pick who will succeed Buhari.
According to Anenih, “When Buhari’s tenure finishes, then we know who takes over from him. When he finishes his tenure, there will be more conventions on both sides and God will lead us to choose somebody who will help Nigeria.
“Maybe he may not be a party member now, either APC or PDP, but if God says that is the person, we will vote for him.
“God will direct the party to go and bring him. If He says it is President Muhammadu Buhari, of course, he can finish his tenure, but one day he will hand over. So what is important is to organise a party.
“Right from 2014, we have missed many opportunities to reorganise PDP. It is because of the selfish interest of some party leaders that PDP is where it is today.
“PDP should have been in power now but everybody wants to be presidential candidate, national chairman. It is never done.”
