National Chairman of Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN), Chief Bisi Akande has predicted the imminent collapse of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

According to Akande who spoke to newsmen at the weekend in Offa, Kwara State at the 10th anniversary of first republic politician and former member of the defunct Northern House of Representatives, Chief Josiah Sunday Olawoyin, 'the emergence of numerous presidential aspirant within the PDP has raised opposing camps within the party.

'As a result there seems to exist oppositions within the party and it appears that the oppositions got thicker with the occurrence of bomb blast in Abuja as the opposing camps strongly disagreed on the manner of the investigation of the blast.'

According to him, the bomb blast which has set the PDP leadership against each other, rather than have any adverse effect on the nation would signpost the demise of the ruling party.

The twin bomb blast has torn the PDP along the pro and anti-Jonathan line with a faction calling on the president to resign or face impeachment.

But according to Akande, 'their actions will not heat up the polity. They will only lead to the sinking of the party.'

The ACN boss expressed optimism on the future of the opposition parties in the country saying they have wide chances of becoming stronger.

He said that his party, owing to change of strategy it embarked upon had been gaining grounds.

Akande had earlier in a paper entitled: 'Legacies of J.S Olawoyin 1925-1983' said: 'Olawoyin was noted for agitation for the betterment of his community, the poor and the downtrodden, which earned him several incarceration in various prisons in Nigeria. I want to advice his children and followers not to allow this deprivation which he had suffered in the hands of oppressors to die until the society is better for it.'

He charged politicians to always think of tomorrow when they would be no more and what they expect the people to say about them. The ACN boss noted that ten years after Olawoyin people were still talking of him, arguing that 'as such he is not died.'
