Babangida who spoke at his Hilltop home when Professor Jerry Gana-led Committee on Strategy and Inter-Party Affairs, said PDP remains the strongest party in Africa, adding that the current crisis is a test for the party.

According to him, “the PDP remains the only acceptable party to Nigerians at all levels regardless of religious or tribal affiliations. It’s the most acceptable party to the people.”

“I believe when the party overcomes this challenge, it has the capacity to rule the country for the next 60 years,” Babangida stressed, adding that the PDP had been accepted from the top to bottom because its presence had been felt and accepted by the people for 16 years.

“From formation stage, I saw the PDP as IRA (Irish Republican Army). We are the military wing of the PDP.

“We took a lot of interest, when I say we, I mean my boss T.Y. Danjuma, Obasanjo, myself, Gen. Aliyu Mohammed. We started it.

“I termed us the IRA military wing of the PDP, I thank God we came up with the old concept. I believe one of our compatriots who said PDP would rule for 60 years. He, however, urged the party to work harder if it must take the power back from the ruling party because nothing good comes easy.

“But you still need to work very hard to get to the top again. I am happy that you people are trying to put the PDP back together again, and I still believe that two-party system is the right choice for Nigeria because it gives room for choice.”

Addressing journalists after the meeting that lasted over an hour, Chairman of the committee, Prof. Gana said the All Progressives Congress (APC) had failed Nigeria.

According to Gana, governance was all about the security and welfare of the people. “But as things are now, Nigerians are suffering. They cannot feel the impact of the government. There is hunger everywhere in the land.  “APC as a party over promised Nigerians and now they cannot fulfill their promises. They have failed Nigerians.”
