2015: PDP will miss defectors – Baraje

Former national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Abubakar Kawu Baraje yesterday said the party cannot fill the vacuum created by members of the splinter group that defected to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Baraje who is also the former chairman of the defunct new- PDP, said the APC will win the 2015 election in the country.
He spoke with journalists in Ilorin, the Kwara state capital during the flag- off of APC membership registration exercise supervised by Alhaji Hassan Lawal,a former minister of works.
Baraje said the insinuations by some people within the PDP that the defectors will return are an indication that the party is missing them.
“It shows they are missing us but it is a wishful thinking to say that we will come back, If they say we are coming back, it means that our positions and the various vacancies we left behind cannot be filled,” he said.
“So, it means the people in PDP are missing us and they are wishing and dreaming every day that we shall come back.
“For us we belong to the progressive minds and until a politician finds himself or herself in a particular society where he or she belongs he will not rest. This is where we belong and we have found our nest and we have made it very comfortable here.”
He said that the ongoing APC membership registration will show how acceptable the party is in Nigeria.
