The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has described as the height of hypocrisy the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) statement alluding that the 2011 general elections were rigged.
The party said that the fact that the ACN had waited over a year to voice a contrary opinion to its earlier position is an indication that the party is ‘‘belatedly regurgitating falsehood from an already digested fact’’.
National publicity secretary of the PDP Chief Olisa Metuh said it was regrettable that the ACN was making bogus statements after accepting the fairness of the election.
“This is a very shameful attempt to regurgitate falsehood from a well-known fact. It is over a year since the 2011 presidential election which the Peoples Democratic Party won fair and square as attested to by local and international observers. And it is on record that neither the ACN leadership nor its presidential flag-bearer challenged the credibility of that election,’’ Metuh said.
“Therefore, waking up a year later to voice an ignoble dissent to an election whose credibility it admitted to the whole world is sheer hypocrisy; an understandable swing to placate extant fancies; at the end, a suicidal self abjuration.”
