We Are Not Afraid Of Buhari, Don't Be Intimidated - Jonathan Tells PDP Members

Former President Goodluck Jonathan has urged members of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP not to be intimidated by the corruption arrests and allegations by the All Progressives Congress, APC.

Jonathan made the claim in a surprise appearance at the PDP's Non-Elective National Convention held at the Eagles Square, Abuja on Saturday, August 12.

Jonathan who stormed the podium, flanked by his former Vice, Namadi Sambo, declared that the PDP is now ready to kick out the APC out of Aso villa, in 2019, hence is no longer afraid of intimidation.

“I want to send a strong warning to the Buhari-led APC, never again to intimidate the PDP members, because the opposition party is ready to take over power. We won't be afraid of any intimidation.”

Jonathan who spoke amidst the cheering crowd said that PDP during its sixteen years in power was able to take Nigeria to a greater height.

”With PDP, there will be no more hunger, no poverty, no joblessness, because we have creative minds who can turn things around. I believe in PDP, and God also believes in PDP. I repeat, no PDP member should be intimidated, because we will resist it. God Is with us.”

According to him, the APC has done nothing in its two years in power, adding that what the ruling party can only boast of is the consolidation on the achievements of the PDP while in power.

The former President noted that the PDP administration introduced both the BVN and the Treasury Single Account which is now being used by the APC led- administration.

Recall that former President Goodluck Jonathan lost to President Muhammadu Buhari at the 2015 election, having served six years as President of Nigeria.
