Why I visited APC – Ogbulafor

A former National Chairman of the PDP, Vincent Ogbulafor, who Friday sneaked into the national Secretariat of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Abuja said he was in the office to congratulate the party for a “job well done”.

In a chat with newsmen after emerging from a private meeting with the APC Chairman, John Oyegun, which lasted for 45 minutes, Mr. Ogbulafor said “I just came back into town yesterday and I came to congratulate the national chairman of APC for a job well done”.

Mr. Ogbulafor was a national secretary and later, chairman of the PDP.

The APC presidential candidate, Muhammadu Buhari, defeated the candidate of the PDP, President Goodluck Jonathan, in the election that held on March 28.

Asked if he is moving over to the APC, Mr. Ogbulafor said “I am still in PDP”, adding “Not yet. Even if I will, not yet”.

The former PDP Chairman also expressed delight with the victory of Mr. Buhari in the presidential election.
When reminded that he had earlier predicted that the PDP would rule Nigeria for 60 years, Mr. Ogbulafor blamed it on the “dismantling of the governors’ forum”.

Also, the APC Deputy National Chairman, South West, Segun Oni, said Mr. Ogbulafor was in the secretariat on a private visit.

“Don’t forget, the National Chairman is his friend and some of us are also his friends,” he said.
Mr. Oni however said the party would be happy to welcome Mr. Ogbulafor into its fold.

“He came to visit his friend and to congratulate us. That is the way politics should be played. Even if he were still the National Chairman of PDP and he comes here to congratulate our national chairman and meet some of us his friends, that will be good politics.

“I am looking forward to our friend, the National Chairman of PDP, visiting us here to say congratulations. As politicians, we must salvage this process called politics; we must rescue it from charlatans.
“We must give it a colour of decency, and maturity,” he said.

    This man has no shame, no ideology, no principles or integrity. No wonder he moves around in the dark.

    “We must salvage this process called politics,we must rescue it from charlatans”. Who if I may ask are the charlatans in all of this? Jonathan and Dame?, FFK and Doyin?,Reuben and Marylyn?,Metuh and Clark?,Tompolo and Boyloaf?,or Wike and Akpabio?

      Igbos will say Yoruba’s are traitors. Did the Yoruba people have an agreement with the SE &SS before the election that they reneged on.? Pls let me know. It is the same rubbish you have been repeating since the Biafra war.
      When you make your decisions be man enough to accept the consequences. We told you Jonathan is not up to the mark, you said he is your Messiah so don’t draw us into your error of judgement. Thank you.

            He does not deserve it, not that he doesnt need it. He is Deri, Jonathan e-messenger. For those who know him well, they don’t bother again to reply him.

    Shameful but it is not only the Igbos that are cross carpeting from PDP to APC. Other politicians from all the ethnic groups are doing same. For me, this election victory that APC has recorded has exposed the desperation and selfishness of most of our politicians. They don’t care about the people as they cunningly made us to believe and it is left for the APC as a party to learn from the mistakes of PDP. The same people that ruined PDP are heading to APC to mess the party up. The people are watching and if the APC choose to head the way of PDP we the people knows what to do and we will definitely fight for our genuine liberation if this incoming incumbent party do otherwise. They should not fail us, the expectation is very high and I have the believe that Buhari with the grace of almighty God will make things work in Nigeria in a positive way. Say baba.

    Buhari Might Not Deliver Everything He Promised During Election.- APC Pleads Nigerians.

    The leadership of the All Progressive Congress (APC) has said that Nigerians should not expect Muhammadu Buhari to fulfill all his campaign promises.
    The party claimed that some of the promises are not valid and are merely for campaign purpose and not achievable in reality.
    ****************************************************
    Nigerians will not want to hear this new rhetoric by the APC that Buhari must deliver change. He grabbed power fraudulent with the help of the rogue INEC chairman Prof Jega, who introduced the scams called Card Reader and PVC.
    Buhari must deliver and there must be no excuse.

    1. A Dollar must be equal to a Naira.
    2. Buhari must stabilize global oil price.
    3. Buhari must feed all school children [Primary & Secondary school].
    4. Buhari Must provide 2 million jobs in a year.
    5. Buhari must pay jobless youth N5,000 each every month, besides, we have the money. he must ask for the list of the recipients.
    6. Jonathan have already defeated Boko Haram, Buhari should give amnesty to them as promised. (besides, they are now freedom fighters and he once advocated for it.)
    7. Buhari will build new prisons so as to incarcerate kworuft people.
    8. 24-hours power supply.
    9. He must bring back all the 276 Chibok girls alive.

    Buhari has no choice. Anything short of this list….is failure

    Please let’s support Buhari, Tinubu, Saraki, Atiku, Amaechi, Obasanjo’s Government.

  • GbemigaO

    Shameless man ! He is even talking. Cant you go and visit your friend at home or call him ? Why congratulate opposing party for a job well done !

    • Olusegun Olawonyi

      I agree with you.

  • Sadinho

    To be fair to the man, I think he was the Chairman ahead of the 2011 PDP primaries before mysterious allegations of corruption were hung over his head. Word is, at the time he didn’t wanna play ball with the ‘Jonathan for President’ ambition’ hence the allegations. After he was ousted, I heard little or nothing about him. Perhaps he made his bed since that time? I guess we can never be sure.

    • Olusegun Olawonyi

      “allegations of corruption were hung over his head”…now I get it. It is clear why he is visiting his “friend”. Spineless politicians!

      And by the way – thanks for your perspectives, Sadinho.

    Hmmm .. Ogbu! Just do it!
