The All Progressives Congress (APC) has challenged the main opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to face it on its own strength in the 2019 general elections instead of looking for Coalition for support.
“We challenge the PDP to face Nigerians on their own merit in 2019 and stop shopping around for supporters.”
The national publicity secretary of the APC, Bolaji Abdullahi, in a statement today, Sunday, described the moves by the PDP to rebrand and lure APC members to be part of a coalition that it is building, as amounting to ”looking for life after death.’
“After three years in the wilderness, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is understandably excited with possibility of hiding its irredeemably bad image under the heap of a new coalition. Like the vulture, PDP sees every altercation as a potential opportunity for a feast.
“If PDP is not alleging wild conspiracies, they are threatening to boycott elections or announcing fake defections. What is clear with all these is that no matter how long a leopard lives, it cannot change its spots.
“What President Muhammadu Buhari and Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, the National Chairman of our Party are doing, persuading every aggrieved member not to leave the Party, is what responsible and sensible party leaders would do. Party politics is a game of number. And that game is addition. If the PDP had the same presence of mind in 2015, perhaps the calamity that befell them would have been averted.”
