Acting National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Ali Modu Sheriff has vowed that the party will stop the All Progressives Congress (APC) – led government’s re-election bid in 2019, as they (PDP) will regain control of the Federal Government.
Ali Modu Sheriff, who made this statement at Governor Okezie Ikpeazu’s Election Thanksgiving which took place on Wednesday in the state, said, “We are here today, we are starting from here, and we are going to Aso Rock, Insha Allah by 2019.
“We will head from here and we will do it together. This my long cap is prepared to lead my colleagues and brothers to Aso Rock, Insha Allah.
“By the grace of Allah nothing will deter this party from going to Aso Rock in 2019. By the time we put down our master-plan I am sure they (APC) will go back to where they came from. And Insha Allah, nothing will stop us.”
He said that he regretted missing the speech presented by Ikpeazu, but expressed confidence that he spoke well.
“I missed the speech of my younger brother the governor of Abia State who stayed in Maiduguri, who I have known in Maiduguri. But I am sure he said all the right things.
“From what I have seen in the stadium, it is clear that his election is the election of the people. It is election that God has destined. It is not election that we call it election by air, election by writing. This is the election of the people,” he said.
