President Goodluck Jonathan has said that those holding the opposition party, All Progressives Congress (APC) are members of the Peoples Democratic Party who decamped.
He spoke Thursday morning on Kaakaki, a current affairs programme on African Independent Television during a current affairs programme, Kaakaki.
In his words, APC would crumble if those members are removed.
He said: “If you remove the PDP elements in the opposition, it would just collapse like a pack of cards. PDP still has an edge over every other party; I am not worried about the outcome of the presidential election”.
He also said: “Globally, a sitting president wins with fewer votes than during his first attempt. PDP still has better chances of winning a national election. PDP is still the dominant party; there’s no polling unit where you don’t have PDP members.
He dismissed speculations that his administration plans to foist an interim government on the nation, pointing out that there was no provision for interim government in the country’s Constitution.
“His words: There’s no provision for interim government in our constitution. The only interim government is military government. Talking about interim government to me is treasonable. There are some Nigerians that are bent on creating crisis in this country. There was no reason to doubt the May 29 handover”
