PDP Is The Grandfather Of Democracy In Nigeria – Mimiko

Ondo State senator and chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Olusegun Mimiko has depicted the previous ruling party r as the ‘grand father of democracy in Nigeria.’ He gave this attribute while talking at the 67th National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting of the gathering in Abuja. Mimiko, who doubles as Chairman PDP Governors’ Forum, credited the party’s annihilation amid the general election to complacency.

Said Mimiko, “It isn’t possible for any party to be in power for 16 years and not have challenges. Our greatest challenge was our complacency.”

The Ondo State governor, however, raised concerns over what he termed the deliberate plan by the All Progressive Congress (APC)-led Federal Government to rubbish the achievements of its immediate predecessor.

He further noted that the greatest achievements of the PDP was the sustenance of representative government in the country.

He stated, “For me, the greatest achievements of PDP is the liberalisation of the democratic space in Nigeria. So, PDP can beat its chest and call itself the grand father of democracy in Nigeria.

“The APC should handle its mandate with caution and fear of God. The selective application of justice won’t advance the cause of democracy.”
