The PDP slid into a crisis after it lost the 2015 presidential election. Some of its members left the party for the All Progressives Congress (APC), and many more have threatened to defect to other parties if Ali Modu Sheriff wins the disputed PDP chairmanship at the supreme court.

    Same people who were in the PDP and never made an impact forming new party. It is just like a peasant in royal robe; the substance of that peasant still remains. When will YOUTH of our nation take their rightful place????
