Abuja -  Former President Goodluck Jonathan has said that the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) would bounce back to reckoning sooner than expected.

 “When you have a president, everybody looks up to the president. But when you no longer have the president, it becomes difficult for the party to have strong leadership”, he said.

He stated that what is happening to the party is not new because every political party has its trying period.

“Every political party has misunderstanding, it is not new, it is always there. From the beginning of PDP, even before I got to Abuja as a vice-president and president, there were instances when the chairman of the party will be asked to step down.

He noted that some of the problems bedeviling the party would be sorted out in March when the party elects new leaders at the ward, local government, state and national levels

“In fact, by March this year, we are going in to elect officers at the lowest levels of the wards to the local government, to the states, to the zones then of course at the national officers will be elected; that is just in March. So the party will bounce back, whatever you are perceiving, it always happen and we will get over it”, he added
