Opinion: Why PDP Has Taken The Right Step To Reach Out To Jonathan Over The Forthcoming Convention

The Peoples Democratic Party PDP has taken the right decision by reaching out to the Former President, Goodluck Jonathan ahead the forthcoming National Convention of the Party. It should be recalled that The PDP had fixed 30th and 31st of October for her National Convention. Meanwhile, Goodluck Jonathan has not been very active in the Party since the crisis started in the Party.

Some Leaders of the Party had earlier clamoured for the removal of Secondus as the National Chairman of the Party. The Governor of Rivers State, Governor Nyesom Wike was one of the PDP Governors who Pionered the removal of Secondus as the National Chairman of the Party but Goodluck Jonathan had kept silence over the crisis rocking the Party. However, The PDP Leaders had taken the right decision by reaching out to Jonathan ahead the National Convention of the Party as this will make him to be more active in the Party.

It should be recalled that APC Leaders had earlier reached out to Jonathan and asked him to dump PDP for APC ahead 2023 Presidential race. Though, Goodluck Jonathan didn't accept the offer but with the action PDP Leaders to carry Goodluck Jonathan along, in the Activities of the Party, APC Leaders will relax and they won't bother much about Goodluck Jonathan. Meanwhile, Some Leaders of the PDP who are loyal to Jonathan had earlier dumped the PDP for APC.

The Likes of Senator Stella Oduah and the former Governor of Akwa Ibom State, Godswill Akpabio who is Minister for Niger Delta are now in APC and everyone know their cordial relationship with Goodluck Jonathan but with Jonathan engagement in PDP, it will be difficult for him to dump the Party for APC. At the same time, APC Leaders will also find it difficult to mount too much Pressure on him to dump the PDP for APC.

It should be recalled that PDP has lost many Leaders to the Ruling Party, APC. PDP lost three Governors within two years, many Senators and House of Assembly members, both at the State and at the National Level to APC. In order not to Lose Goodluck Jonathan to APC, the PDP Leaders have done well to engage him in the forthcoming National Convention of the Party.
