Okupe List Ways PDP Can Defeat APC In 2023

PDP

In a post on Facebook entitled ‘Why PDP must change its name’, Okupe called on the former ruling party to change its name.

According to the former presidential aide, a name change and formation of a new party is the only way to defeat the ruling APC.

He said the “formation of a new party, birthed by PDP, with new people, younger elements in society and politicians of other tendencies from various existing political parties including powerful but dissatisfied elements from the ruling party, is the only formation that will effectively neutralise and overrun the incumbent party.”

Doyin Okupe noted that the PDP in its present state and form cannot win comfortably the Presidential elections in 2023.

He added that, “to defeat the APC structure in 2023, the present PDP must make itself the arrowhead of a national movement to oust the present administration. This is exactly what the component factions of the APC did in 2014.

“If we engage the APC in a straight political duel, with 21 state govs against 14 combined with the possible reckless use of the power of incumbency, victory becomes a pipe dream.

“It is the residual power of the populace and the electorates when massively mobilised and unleashed that can bring overwhelming victory that will render the power of incumbency and superior executive state control irrelevant.

“PDP with its socio-political baggage and insurmountable moral burden cannot muster the moral rectitude, political strength and integrity to lead such a mass movement.

“A new party, birthed by PDP, with new people, younger elements in society and politicians of other tendencies from various existing political parties including powerful but dissatisfied elements from the ruling party, is the only formation that will effectively neutralise and overrun the incumbent party.”
