Anambra: Why I back Nwoye despite crisis – Tukur

National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Bamanga Tukur, yesterday predicted that a much younger member of the party would take over government from President Goodluck Jonathan in 2019.

He said this position of “PDP’s support for youths was the reason it resolved to stand by its governorship candidate in Anambra, Tony Nwoye, notwithstanding the rumblings that have been characterizing preparations by the party for the governorship election in the south-east state.”

Tukur spoke yesterday in Abuja when members of the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS), Anambra branch, paid him a visit at his residence.

“President Jonathan had already laid the foundation for the Nigerian youths to spear-head the political and economic engineering of Nigeria, urging them to take the advantage right away, while not sitting on the fence any longer,” the PDP leader said.

He, however, urged the students not to relent in supporting the party’s agenda in all areas, most especially its desire to position youths for the challenges of taking part in rebuilding Nigeria.

According to him, PDP remains focused with its 12-point agenda, which includes the Triple R: Reconciliation, Reformation and Rebuilding of not only PDP, but the entire country.

Responding, the delegation spokesperson, Danielson Tony, expressed misgivings on the crises within PDP, as he commended Tukur for the wisdom, understanding and maturity he had so far exercised in managing the crises.
