Recently though, I think @DoubleEph has been able to do so effectively.
The summary (as I see it):
PDP stands for Prosperity,
APC stands for Poverty.
What I saw was a glimpse of AD around 2004 to 2006: a party locked in ethnic politics that could never manage to extricate itself because it simply never saw the grand vision of Awolowo or Bola Ige and so misunderstood it.
But Awolowo was a deep thinker for Nigeria and if he had attained federal power, would have proven himself a foremost nationalist
He was born in Kaduna, speaking Hausa as his first language and so had to ‘prove himself’ so to speak, to the Yorubas.
Because my best friend in primary school was Hausa or Fulani (I didn’t then know the difference), and at home, it was an Igbo person
Others may have seen nothing wrong with it but for me, it was anathema and PDP was more reflective of cultural and ethnic diversity.
Then coming to APC and PDP today...
That the so-called Yoruba progressives are in bed with the most conservative feudalists ever from the North is a huge political problem.
