the key architects of PDP’s loss of power after 16 years of misrule,” said
“We also understand his frustration in his very difficult
assignment of reinventing PDP, a party the death of which he and some other tin
gods caused by frustrating Amaechi and other progressives who were the souls of
PDP out of the party.”
Comment could not be obtained from the PDP.
