“How PDP lost power” – Doyin Okupe

The Senior Special Assistant on Public Affairs to former President, Goodluck Jonathan, Dr Doyin Okupe, has said the crisis in the People’s Democratic Party(PDP) is a result of sheer leadership failure at various levels over time. In a recent interview, when asked about the crisis rocking the opposition party, Okupe said, “The loss of power at the centre jolted us and contributed majorly. We have not fully recovered from the effects of that loss of power. Due to the loss, a leadership vacuum emerged in the top structure of the PDP. When the leadership vacuum began to emerge, it was filled by not-too-experienced leaders. Yes, they were leaders in their own rights, but they weren’t too experienced politically for the kind of burden they were called upon to shoulder.The PDP had a body that was supposed to be a repository of wisdom and was expected to have risen up to the occasion, which was the Board of Trustees. The PDP BoT from the beginning of this crisis till the end was an abysmal failure. All this cumulated in the quagmire that the PDP has found itself. Unfortunately, sentiments were allowed to override good judgment. “
