The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has alluded that the All Progressives Congress (APC) is experiencing death throes and pre-election trauma, stressing that it’s leaders are now in a frenzy over its unpopular presidential candidate, ahead of the 2019 general election.
The PDP further claimed that there is confusion, backstabbing and vicious scheming within the APC, which is a tragic testimony that the ruling party has become politically decapitated by the evident dishonesty, greed, selfishness and lust for power by its leaders.
PDP National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, in a statement, said it is now clear that the APC is an ideologically empty movement and a special purpose vehicle put together by egoistic strange bedfellows just for the purpose of winning political power and not for the good of Nigerians.
The statement added “the APC is stewing in its own venomous broth. The nation can now see why, even with a sitting President, the party is still finding it difficult to agree on simple issues, but always attempt to circumvent and violate the laws to push desperate agenda of their selfish leaders.
“We call on Nigerians not to be deceived by the sudden law-abiding stance of the APC, as it is merely cosmetic and meant to cloak their hidden but soon to be manifested plots to manipulate the laws to push a self-succession plan of their incompetent candidate.
“It is evident that APC has never had anything to offer Nigerians other than confusion, disagreements, economic recession, bad national image and painful bloodletting.
“Nigerians must therefore remain alert and very wary of all activities of power mongers in the APC, who are so mortally afraid of elections that they are ready to destroy our democratic institution to achieve their selfish agenda of perpetuating themselves in power to the peril of our dear nation,” the opposition party said.
PDP however said it has repositioned itself and “remains open with a level playing ground for all Nigerians to aspire for any position, without hindrances or manipulations, while ensuring strict observance to internal democracy at all level of our process.”
