The Special Adviser to the President on Political Matters, Ahmed Gulak has said the All Progressives Congress should rest assured that the ruling Peoples Democratic Party will win the national elections in 2015.

Gulak issued the statement as a reply to statements made by two former PDP Governors who recently cross carpeted to the APC. Governor Rotimi Amaechi (Rivers) and Governor Rabiu Kwankwaso said over the weekend that the PDP would lose the national elections in 2015.

Amaechi went further and stated that the only way the PDP would win the elections was if it first rigged them. Kwankwaso called on the electorate to vote out the PDP.

However in response, Gulak said the APC was already falling apart citing internal ramblings in Sokoto; Gulak also described the party as “a bed of strange fellows”.

The Presidential aide commented, “That claim by the two governors and others in the APC is a wishful thinking.

“I can assure you that the PDP will win the next general elections and  form the government at the federal level.

“The PDP is the only organised national party in the country. It is the party to beat.

“The APC is a bed of strange fellows. You know that they have started experiencing crisis. Go to Sokoto State, they have two offices already. That is happening in some other states too.”

Also commenting on the issue, PDP National Spokesman, Olisa Metuh said the 2015 elections would attest to the fame of the party as it would be voted for en masse.

He declined to join issues with Governors Amaechi and Kwankwaso, describing the governors as former esteemed members of the party, who had benefited a great deal from it.

He said, “I find it difficult and painful to react to this because these were formidable members of our party  that had benefitted immensely from the party.”
