Despite losing the last general elections, former President Goodluck Jonathan on Monday declared that the Peoples Democratic Party remains the biggest and the strongest party in Nigeria.The former President said that the PDP would bounce back in 2019.

He said that the outcome of the last general elections, which the party lost to the All Progressives Congress, was a minor setback which he said did not diminish the party.

On the fate of his party ahead of the 2019 elections, he said. “The PDP is still the biggest and the strongest party. Irrespective of what happened in the 2015 general elections. Yes, we lost the presidential election but that doesn’t diminish us. Every other party still knows that the PDP is a leading party.

“Losing the Presidency is something temporary. We should be able to get that position back as long as we are able to get our act together. I am happy that you people are working towards that.”

The former president, however, advocated the use of statutory delegates for the party’s primaries to check imposition of candidates.He also endorsed the alliance talks between the PDP and other political parties.
