December 9 national convention: The choice before PDP

Democracy is built on a strength of a performing government in power and a strong opposition. The opposition stands as the alternative in case the ruling party fails to meet the yearnings and expectations of the electorates, especially when it fails to deliver on the promises it made during election campaigns. In Nigeria, since the return of democracy in 1999, the self-styled largest party in Africa, the PDP reigned supreme at the centre and in most states in the country. There was no strong opposition until 2014 with the formation of the All Progressives Congress (APC) – an amalgamation of small political parties.

The APC put the PDP on its toes. It offered a virile opposition to the PDP. With the almost never-ending press statements of its then publicity secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, every policies of the government was scrutinised and criticised. The APC galvanised the civil society, academicians, professional bodies, trade and students’ unions and the citizenry to kick against a series of government’s actions and policies that it considered unfavourable, inhuman and anti-people.
