Former Minister of Finance, Adamu Ciroma, on Monday said the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) did not lose the 2015 presidential election. Ciroma made this disclosure when he received members of PDP Board of Trustees led by its Chairman, Sen. Jibrin Walid, in Abuja. According to Ciroma, “Just before the last elections and when we saw the trend of events, I warned members of the PDP to prepare themselves for whatever eventuality that may come. Today, PDP didn’t lose and APC didn’t win because APC has a lot to do. When you talk about politics, you talk about PDP. When you talk of politics, people talk about PDP as If APC does not exist. So far, APC is not playing the right role.
“Politics will always be there, and there must be good and bad people who’ll participate in it. Everybody who participates in politics does so for good cause and that good cause is of the interest and political stability of all Nigerians. There will not be one party; there will always be one political party or the others. I insist that people must play the rightful role in politics and that role is to promote the interest of the poor masses. Anybody can make a mistake. The beauty of it is that every party that has a chance to rule has the chance to make mistakes. APC will make a lot of mistakes and the PDP must be ready to put things right and all of you must be ready to contribute, participate and get involved for the interests of ordinary Nigerians.’’
