Doom Awaits PDP in the New Year says CAN South East Chairman.


The Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, has warned President Goodluck Jonathan to 'tighten his seat belt' in the New Year, or honourably resign and vacate the Aso Villa.

This warning was sounded on Tuesday by the Chairman of the South- East chapter of CAN and the Anglican Bishop of Enugu, Rt. Rev. Dr. Emmanuel Chukwuma in a New Year message.

According to the Bishop, doom awaits the ruling Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in the New Year except the likes of Chief Tony Anenih and Alhaji Bamanga Tukur retire from active politics.

“If those elders I warned before to retire don't retire, then the party will be in trouble in 2014. At 80, Anenih should retire; Bamangar Tukur should retire.

These people should now serve as elders and advisers; if they do that, PDP will get its dignity back, but while you still have these analogue leaders and elders in the party and the polity, forget about PDP in 2015,” he warned.

He called on President Jonathan to rise to the challenges facing his administration, especially the alleged cases of corruption in the polity, unemployment and epileptic power supply, adding that if he cannot deliver, he should prepare to vacate the Aso Rock in 2015.

He said, “Jonathan must be focused in 2014 in order to prove himself worthy for 2015.

“Failure to do that and he gets distracted and doesn't prove himself, and Nigeria continues with the way it is today with corruption, no light, poverty, unemployment, I beg him, he should just step aside, let us seek for a better leader in 2015″.

Bishop Chukwuma however called on Nigerians to be more faithful to God by pursuing peace and righteousness.
