The All Progressives Congress (APC) has told the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) that it is the past sins it committed against Nigerians that are now haunting it even as the party wanted Nigerians to ignore its allegation that it planted Senator Ali Modu Sheriff to destroy it.
The APC was reacting to what it described as baseless and laughable allegations from the Ahmed Makarfi-led faction of the PDP that the APC was using Senator Ali Modu Sheriff to destabilize the former ruling party.
In a statement signed by its National Secretary, Mallam Mai Mala Buni, the APC said the PDP should be ignored, adding that the party’s problems are traceable to sins it committed during its years as the leading party.
“For the umpteenth time, the APC wishes to state that instead of joining issues with the baseless and laughable allegations, the APC would rather join issues that will bring about all-inclusive development in the country.”
Malam Buni put it on record that the PDP forced on itself whatever crisis it is troubled with today due to its politics of imposition and other undemocratic practices that the APC abhors.
He called on the PDP to put its house in order rather than playing to the gallery and blaming others for their sins, which have come to hunt them.
“Also, it is evident that the PDP has chosen to employ diversionary tactics because of its inability to produce credible candidates for the forthcoming elections in Edo and Ondo States.” [myad]
