The Youths Will Take Over From Jonathan In 2019-Tukur


The National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Bamanga Tukur has said that President Goodluck Jonathan will rule the country till 2019, after which he will handover to a younger member of the party.

Tukur made this known yesterday, when members of the National Association of Nigerian Students, NANS, Anambra State branch paid him a visit at his Wuse residence.

According to him, Jonathan has already laid the foundation for the youths to take over the nation’s politics as the future belongs to them. He therefore urged them to start early preparing to take over leadership in all facets of national life and to take advantage of the great opportunity being given to them by the President.
Tukur added that the PDP?s support for the youths was the reason it resolved to stand by its governorship candidate in Anambra, Tony Nwoye, for the November 16 election.

The chairman said: ?Nwoye has defined himself as a candidate who is not hankering after the governorship seat of Anambra in desperation. Rather, it is the governorship seat that needs him because of his potentials and the wealth of experience he had garnered in the management of youths affairs.

?I urge you students from Anambra State not to relent in supporting the party?s agenda in all areas, most especially its desire to position the youths for the challenges of taking part in rebuilding Nigeria.

?The PDP remains focused with its 12-point agenda which include reconciliation, reformation and rebuilding of not only the PDP, but the entire country. You must key into the deal by playing prominent roles in the process henceforth?.

Also speaking, the spokesman for the Anambra students, Mr Danielson Tony expressed misgivings on the crises within the PDP as he commended the Chairman for the wisdom, understanding and the maturity he had so far exercised in managing the crises.
