He said the current situation in the party had been made worse by the active connivance of some members of the Judiciary as well as the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC.
His words: “The PDP is a party that has been fortunate to command support all over Nigeria. No other party has done that in the history of Nigeria. You have the party being supported by people not on the ground of geography, ethnicity or people. The nearest we had gone was in the days of the NPN, but they did not quite reach there. But I do not think the PDP can sustain this for too long in a peaceful Nigeria.”
He warned that what is going on cannot continue, adding: “Open brazen mismanagement of political processes and unfortunately, they tend to get support from the Judiciary and that is terrible because we are putting the country in danger yet failing to look at what is happening around us. How long do you think that Nigerians will continue to tolerate these things when the political process is brazenly ignored for no good reason.”
He described the party as a bad influence on the other political parties, even as he stated that its activities had been copied by other parties in states where they also hold sway.
Aminu, who is irked by the results of the current gubernatorial primaries in some states where elections have been postponed until next year, including his home state, Adamawa, called for a halt and total cancellation of the primaries held so far if the party hopes to retain the states.
