The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole, has described the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as a typical village sheep that gathers all its food in the day time and chews it all through the night.
“What they already have, like a typical village sheep, they may be chewing it all day, all night. You know in the day time, the sheep will go to grab every food it can get so that at night, it is chewing. Just reprocessing.
“It appears they have almost finished digesting what they have taken and now they are worried about how they can sustain power and they are threatening.”
Oshiomhole, who was reacting to the threat by the PDP to boycott the 2019 general elections, while speaking at the submission of the Osun State primary election result, by the Chairman of the election committee and Governor of Zamfara State, Abdulaziz Yari, made it clear that nobody can threaten democracy in Nigeria.
“Let me also use this opportunity to comment on what I read. I saw the PDP chairman threatening that they may boycott the 2019 election.
“Now, when a rabbit, because I come from a village; when a rabbit in the afternoon jumps out of the hole not because the hunter has come to smoke it out and it is running, you know it has already seen its end.
“But the truth is that we are not desperate. We have worked hard to defeat PDP while they were in power, when they had no faction, when all the founding fathers and founding fathers were in the same house, we defeated them.
“Nigerian people rejected them on account of 16 years of absolute misrule at the peak of our prosperity as a nation when oil sold for $140 a barrel and we came in when oil price has dropped.
“If with all those huge revenue that accrued to them, people complained of bad roads whether from the south to the east, from the north to the west, they have nothing new to offer to the Nigerian people.
“So, I think they are hunted by their own ghost and because they had perpetuated a do-or-die politics and they are on record both electronic and print as saying that election matter is about do or die.
“One of their old man was recorded as saying that and they perfected the language of ring them out, let them go to court.
“Now, rigging machine has been dismantled and how can they survive without it? The glue that held them together which was cheap money from federal treasury, again, that has been cut off.”
