The national chairman of the PDP, Alhaji Adamu Mu’azu, has stated that he does not intend to be friendly with the incoming government of the APC, but rather will bite.
The APC, he said, will know that he, as the PDP chairman, is an attack dog.
Mu’azu, who made the declaration while answering questions from journalists in Umuahia, Abia State, after a visit to Governor Theodore Orji on Thursday night, said PDP would rather give a tough opposition to APC from May 29 after the latter takes over power.
He said, “By the special grace of God, we will give them a run for their money; that I can assure you under my leadership despite that I am accused of not being an attack dog. They will understand it later. I will wait until such a time when God gives me the opportunity; then they will know whether or not I am an attack dog.”
He said PDP will not go into any alliance with the incoming administration, adding, that the party would undergo rebranding under his leadership so as to be able to reclaim its dominance and enviable position in Nigeria’s political landscape.
According to Mu’azu, “The PDP National Working Committee, under my supervision, will be able to rebrand the party, redirect the party, and ensure that the party takes up its national and state leadership position.
“The mistakes we have made individually and collectively will be analysed by a committee and passed to us for implementation to ensure success in subsequent elections.”
