PDP Of Now Is Different From PDP Of Then- El Rufai Explains

APC’s Kaduna Gubernatorial candidate, Mallam Nasir ElRufai
has slammed PDP hard again. The Governorship aspirant on Saturday during a
courtesy visit to the correspondent chapel of the Nigeria Union of Journalists
in Kaduna said what the party practise is quite different from what they
practiced when he was in PDP. He made few instances to buttress his point.
“It is a big mistake to say that the PDP of 2003 is the same
as the Jonathan’s PDP. The PDP that I was a member had rules and processes. Let
me give you one example. As a minister of FCT, I demolished a house belonging
to the Chairman of the PDP.”

“Today, no minister of the FCT can touch the house of a
member of the PDP National Executive Committee. The PDP in 1999 was not the
same as the PDP of today. The PDP of today is a criminal PDP.”
“They have no regard for rules. They say that they are
Peoples Democratic Party but they have no regard for the people and democracy.
I was minister on the platform of the PDP but I was not a minister because I
was in PDP. I was a minister on merit.”
“The minister representing Kaduna State was Nenadi Usman,
because the governor of Kaduna as at that time disowned me and said that I did
nothing for the party. But Obasanjo told him that ‘whether you like it or not
this man is going to be minister because I have a special assignment for him.”

He also made mention that the Minister of Finance, Ngozi
Okonjo-Iweala; a former Minister of Education, Oby Ezekwesili and himself were
appointed by Obasanjo as “technocrats” and not on the basis of political party
