Congresses: APC, Driving Nigeria To Anarchy – PDP



The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has said it is terrified by the spate of violence, mayhem, bloodletting and massive corruption associated with the All Progressives Congress (APC), both in governance and its internal activities.

PDP said since APC emerged, its leaders have continued to drag the
nation towards a state of anarchy by engaging in actions that instigate
bloody conflicts and breakdown of law and order among Nigerians,
including in their fold as a party.

The national publicity secretary of PDP, Kola Ologbondiyan in a statement further added that Nigerians watched with bewilderment and disbelief as indescribable savagery, cruelty, violence, shooting and bloodletting enveloped the APC ward congress, which ordinarily should be a civil interaction among party members.

The statement said “From the rascally attempt to overrun a court of competent jurisdiction
in Port Harcourt, Rivers State to halt the wheel of justice, the burning
of their own secretariat in Owerri, Imo state, the gruesome murder of
their own members in Lagos and Oyo States to the malignant disputation
and lust for power by its leaders across the nation, it is clear that
the APC is not organic but a soulless mob without any form of conscience
and integrity; an ‘evil wind that blows no good’.

“Party Congresses are designed to allow members interface and resolve
divergences amicably. It is therefore instructive that the APC could not
actuate this simplest tradition of political parties, making its
congress a threat to our democracy.

“APC has become a symbol and harbinger of malevolence, which, by every indication, is on a sordid throttle of taking our nation to the long
forgotten state of nature where only the mighty rules; the state of

“From its cannibalistic proclivities, the world can see why the APC and
its insensitive Federal Government care less about the lives and welfare
of Nigerians, resulting in the escalation of violence, bloodletting,
mass killings, extra-judicial executions, persecution of citizens, abuse of human rights, constitutional violations, including invasion of the
National Assembly as well as attack on federal lawmakers and judicial
officers. We now know the roots of APC’s harsh economic policies and
massive corruption that led to the biting economic recession and its
attendant hunger, starvation and lack ravaging our nation today.”

PDP added that Nigerians are now on a consensus that things can only get worse with the APC owing to its proclivity for vengeance, violence and repression.

PDP therefore charged Nigerians, irrespective of creed, class or
sectional persuasion, to be at alert, look beyond personal interests,
rise in unison and use all democratic instruments to stop the APC in
this dangerous drive to further wreck the nation and plunge it into a
state of anarchy.

“On our own part, the rebranded PDP remains open as the credible platform
for all Nigerians to coalesce in the collective quest to rescue our
nation from the clutches of the APC and the President Muhammadu
Buhari-led administration, come 2019,” the party said.
