The former National President of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Abubakar Baraje has said party supremacy remains the remedy to any form of crisis staring at political parties in the face, stressing that politicking would continue and there would be more problems either at state or federal level.
He said the crisis rocking the All Progressive Congress (APC) if not properly managed might snowball and consume the party come 2023 general election.
Baraje stated this while speaking with newsmen as he celebrated his 70th birthday on Wednesday in Ilorin.
“Party crisis in Kwara State, until we see party as supreme, the politicking will continue, there will be more and more problems”
“By the time their crisis snowball,I’m afraid, there won’t be APC, ” he said.
The former National Scribe of PDP, described the relationship between the immediate past Senate President Dr. Bukola Saraki and himself as brotherhood and master-servant relationship.
The Septuagenarian said, for no reason would he take any political appointment from President Muhammadu Buhari as level of decadence in the country could not be redeemed with advice.
He said the PDP has not gone Oblivion, adding that the party only adopted “sidon-look” tactic while he expressed optimism that there are brighter chances for the party come 2023 general election.
He noted that, the party has learnt a lot of lessons and still learning from the defeat suffered in the past election years, noting that the masses now see that those in power came in through deceit and dishonesty of purpose.
Baraje added that the former Senate President,Dr. Bukola Saraki has been saddled with reconciliatory assignment, he urged Nigerians to watch out for the magic PDP is set to perform in few months’ time.
He commended the governors who launched the Amotekun security outfit, adding if there is any opportunity for that in Kwara State,he would lead the people to form the replica of the security outfit.
On failure of the State House of Assembly to swear in PDP member, AbdulRaheem Agboola,he advised the Speaker to with alacrity swear in the mandate owner.
“If you say you are leading by law,PDP legislator should be sworn-in,obey the law. Let the law take it course. I advise him, Speaker with alacrity to swear-in Agboola,so as not to ruin his (Speaker) future.”
Reflecting on his life in the last seventy years, he thanked God for sound health enjoyed which said he would never take for granted.
