9TH ASSEMBLY: Vote candidates of your choice, PDP caucus tells members

A select group of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) members in the House of Reps on Thursday appeared to predict the outcome of 2019 polls by claiming that they were poised to chase the ruling party, All Progressive Congress (APC), led by President Muhammadu Buhari, out of Power.

The meeting and subsequent briefing of the press were in reaction to Wednesday’s Supreme Court Judgment which affirmed Makarfi’s status as the duly recognized chairman of the party under the law.

House Minority Leader, Leo Ogor, who led other members of his party to the briefing, stated that the APC should see the PDP’s victory at the apex court as a quite notice towards 2019, owing to what he described as their failure to fulfill promises and make the situation in the country better than it was prior to their emergence.

The statements of these PDP members of the House of Representatives followed a similar pattern of responses from other PDP leaders and supporters who appear to have been reinvigorated by the ruling, and emboldened to make confident projections about the fortunes of the PDP.

It remains to be seen how the party will manage this landmark legal outcome, resolve all pending political disputes, while also addressing other issues that predated the protracted legal battle.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ohanaeze_Ndigbo#History After the Nigerian civil war, some prominent Igbos gathered to proclaim the need to unify Igbos under a common umbrella body. This initiative was much welcomed considering maximum displacement of the Igbos during the war and its aftermath. An organizational assembly was created, referred to as the Igbo National Assembly (INA). This organization was later banned by the northern Hausa-fulani Boko Haram terrorist controlling the federal Military government of Nigeria at the time, the northern Hausa-fulani Nigerians controlling the federal government’s fear of a grand suspicious agenda, according to what seems or is stated to be real or true, when this is perhaps not the case being cultivated by the Igbos via the organization; hence, the creation of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, in 1976, the Gowon Backs Nigeria’s Restructuring fails, Says He Did Same in 1967 and over 2,000,000 Igbos lost their lives, but in actual fact for Federal Military Governments of Nigeria to avoid prosecution.
