The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), leader, Ambassador Fidelis Tapgun, has disclosed that he worked towards the victory of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the just concluded 2015 Nigeria’s general elections.
The former governor of Plateau state, disclosed that he decided to work for the APC because of the injustice perpetrated against PDP members and the imposition of candidates during the elections by some state governors at various levels.
This disclosure was made known while addressing newsmen at his country home in Jos on April 21, Tuesday.
He said: “I contributed to the success of the APC in the state because my party failed. My party failed to zone the governorship to the southern part and that was the greatest error made by the party. The APC fortunately zoned the governorship to the southern part and it won.
“Contributing to the APC victory was not because we were gratified, it was not hidden at all; it was not done behind the scene. We openly said that we were going to work against the PDP in Plateau State and we kept our promise.
“We are PDP; we are not going out and we did it to the end. So, the success of the APC is on the platform of the PDP and we are not ashamed of and it is good to show people that whenever you don’t perform you will be kicked out.”
Tapgun concluded that the PDP was divided and that APC’s victory at the federal and state levels was not surprising.
