Senior Special adviser to President Goodluck Jonathan on communications, Dr. Doyin Okupe has made it clear that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) might have been defeated in 2015 but that it would come back stronger in four years to come.
“Certainly, we will be back. We will overcome this defeat and rise again to power and glory in a twinkle of an eye.”
Dr. Okupe said on his facebook wall that it has pleased the Almighty God to give victory to General Muhammadu Buhari, the Presidential candidate of the APC and the President elect, adding: “we accept this as the Will of God and I personally congratulate the general for his success.
“We have ran a good race and fought a gallant battle. We are bowed but not cowed. We lost the crown but we gained a trophy.
“The PDP family must not despair;
If it took general Buhari 30 yrs to come back to power, it should take us much less.”
Dr. Okupe gave glory to God for the opportunities the PDP family had had in the last 16 years, adding: “to millions of our supporters, we say thanks. To those who are our adversaries, the battle has been fought, and it has been won & lost. The strife is over for the next 4 yrs ONLY.”
The Presidential communications master planner rejoiced with APC and the people of Nigeria
on the progress that has been jointly made in the nation’s democratic journey.
“For our democracy to endure, it is important that the winner clearly emerges while the loser concedes with equanimity.”
