Former Minister of Education and Delta State Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship hopeful, Kenneth Gbagi, yesterday, declared that PDP will bounce back to power at the federal level in 2023.

Gbagi made the declaration shortly after returning to his Oginibo country home in Ughelli South Council of the state from Ondo State where he was conferred with the traditional title of Aare Atunluse of Akure Kingdom.

“PDP will produce the next president of Nigeria, because until a man marries two wives, he certainly may not know which is better. So, having married two wives, Nigerians can now see the difference,” he said.

He described those defecting from PDP to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) as a full-blooded members of the opposition party at the federal level, adding:

“Those running from PDP to APC are not APC members. They are PDP members in blood, soul and body and they will all to work for the PDP.”

Gbagi, who also noted that the country would not disintegrate, accused the Federal Government of being responsible for the many problems in the country.

“For any problem in Nigeria is cause by the government, because our huge population ought to be a beautiful thing and a thing of joy. A huge population anywhere in the world is a money spinner, an economic driver, but we are toying with our assets, hence we are where we are today,” he said.

On the falling value of the Naira against the Dollar, Gbagi noted: “When I left as minister, the Naira was N156 to a Dollar.

That is when I left government and it was maintained, but you can see that what we have now is a mess.”

Speaking further, Gbagi said it was time for the multinational oil companies to relocate to their operational base to the Niger Delta region, saying: “If our area is good to exploit their oil, gas and other natural resources, it should be good enough to host their headquarters.

“It is time people started respecting our people. Those companies should move to their areas of operations for them to experience peace. We don’t want to go back to the days of cutting pipelines or destroying anything. It is therefore, important that sit on a roundtable and negotiate,” he said.
