No Party Can Beat PDP Jonathan Boasts

President Goodluck Jonathan on Monday boasted that despite
the intimidation being mounted against members of the ruling party by
opposition parties, no political party can beat the Peoples Democratic Party in
the coming election.
He said those who had not done anything had been
intimidating the ruling party because the party had not been marketing itself.

The President spoke just as the Director-General of his
campaign organisation, Senator Ahmadu Ali, said some foreign countries were
opposed to Jonathan’s re-election bid because he signed the Anti Same-Sex Bill
into law.
They both spoke during the unveiling of the PDP Ward
Volunteer Scheme held inside the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
“I am convinced that up to this time, there is no party that
can beat the PDP. All we need is unity. There is no party that is formidable

Jonathan said the party would not allow the opposition to
win at the national level.
He said, “They (the opposition) intimidate us to the extent
that they intimidate us even in states where we have PDP governors.
“We will not allow those who are not up to us in terms of
performance to continue to intimidate us.
“At the national level, we cannot compare our standards with
theirs, because they have not had the experience and we will not give them the
opportunity because I know they will not do well.”
