PDP To Presidency: APC Defectors Will Not Return



The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has told the Presidency to stop hallucinating that those who left the All Progressives Congress (APC) will return, adding that they left because of this administration’s incompetence in dealing with unabated killings, bloodletting and biting economic hardship across the country.

The party was reacting to a presidency statement credited to the special adviser to the president on National Assembly Matters, Senator Ita Enang, claiming that members of the National Assembly, who reunited and those who joined the PDP have agreed to work for Buhari in the 2019 election.

Dispelling the submission as a hallucination of a failing government, the National Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Kola Ologbondiyan, in a statement, said “the Buhari presidency has become so jittery over its imminent loss of the 2019 election that it has now recoursed to bare-faced lies and childish blackmail.”

The PDP said, “Such will not save the disintegrating All Progressives Congress (APC) from drowning.”

PDP maintained that those “who deserted the sinking ship of APC, did so in protest against the incompetence of President Muhammadu Buhari, leading to the unending killings, bloodletting and biting economic hardship across our nation in the last three years.”

PDP further said, “the APC-led Federal Government has woefully failed to deliver on any of its promises and has nothing to showcase except a recourse to underhand tactics and intimidation of opponents and perceived enemies.

“Those who left the APC are therefore, no longer prepared to continue living a lie that everything is okay with our nation, whereas under the leadership of President Buhari, the drift towards anarchy, as well as the indices of a failing state, are very manifest.

“The PDP therefore, finds it ludicrous that the Presidency can sit back and claim that compatriots, who have seen ahead that President Buhari is taking our nation to nowhere, will turn around and contemplate casting their votes for him in 2019.

“We, therefore, urge the Buhari Presidency to stop its fantasy game and be ready to confront the crushing defeat that awaits him and his party in the 2019 general elections.”
