On the 31st of August 2013 it was a great day for the Africa largest party, the PDP at the Eagle square Abuja where a special convention was packaged by the party's leadership, Alhaji Bamanga Tukur with a view to reposition the PDP for another political success in 2015. While President Jonathan, the Vice President, the BOT Chairman, Tony Aneniy and other party faithfuls were looking forward to a hitch free Convention where many political handshakes were expected amongst attendants across the nation, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, a one time Vice President of the Federation who turned rebellious against his boss then, had a secret agenda that was going to be another unprecedented event in the political history of the Country. Atiku Abubakar had before going to the convention plotted a political coup to wrest power from the hand of the PDP Exco. led by its Alhaji Bamanga T. The former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar was able to lure some unsuspecting governors to his side in his attempt to overthrow the PDP in particular and the Nigerian Government under the leadership of Dr. Goodluck Jonathan in general. That Atiku and his co-plotters stormed the Eagle square with the governors he pocketed drove in also and took their positions.
Atiku' must have concluded that his move to destabilize the party with his stooge governors was going to earn him a title and or a brighter political future or relevance in the country, but that is rather a costly mistake he will regret forever. Atiku is not a good organizer of people and anyone who does not have organizing spirit is self centered and a repellant personality to any organization. If you look back at Atiku when he was the Vice President, he lost himself in power struggle with his boss, President Olusegun Obasanjo and ignorantly attempted a political suicide, but time allowed him to continue in PDP till this unbelievable show of shame in the working out of the PDP National Convention by him and his seven mindless governors.
In the eyes of millions of others who share the views of this writer, the likes of Atiku Abubakar,and the seven governors: Sule Lamido Jigawa, Babangida Aliyu Niger, Aliyu Wamako Sokoto, Rabiu Musa Kwakwanso, Kano, Murtala Nyako Adamawa, Abdulfatai Ahmed and Rivers Rotimi Amaechi have all displayed incompetence by dancing in the market place and are no longer qualified to hold national office to represent our interest haven failed in the little capacities they were given to hold for us in trust. This vies held strongly because these people if made President or Ambassadors will no doubt run out of meetings or conventions and leave either Nigeria or Africa unrepresented. It is a costly mistake in politics, a type of coup that should not be ignored or swept under the carpet. A committee has to be set up by the PDP to investigate the matter and relegate them to the abyss of political history.
Come to think of it their exit should rather be seen as a welcome development and an answer to prayers that every bad egg in the PDP or in the Government of President Jonathan that are not for good be flushed out. Let them therefore goooooooooooo. And they cannot even impersonate PDP, because PDP is a registered party with its own structure and any attempt to claim paralleling PDP by Atiku and his seven miss-road governors tantamount s criminality the appropriate authorities need not ignore.
Anyone or group no matter how well or wrongly placed that try to raise their voices to say that the God chosen Son of the Niger Delta, South-South Nigeria of the Ijaw ethnic nationality, Bayelsa State, Ogbia Local Government Area of Otueke Community, His Excellency, President Goodluck Jonathan should not contest in 2015 are not on the path of righteousness, because the Constitution allows him a second tenure ticket.
