Don’t Drag Our Party Into Your Crisis, PDP Cautions APC


ABUJA - The PDP on Tuesday cautioned the APC to face its self-inflicted woes instead of seeking a face-saving measure by dragging the name of the PDP into its shameless internal wrangling, bordering on the incompetence, recklessness and treasury looting by its leaders.

APC had on Monday told members not in support of the party's policies to leave and join People's Democratic Party (PDP).

PDP, in a statement by its spokesman, Kola Ologbondiyan, noted that the APC, by bringing out its dirty linen to the marketplace, at this time, has again demonstrated its insensitivity and contempt towards the values and feelings of Nigerians.

“How else can it justify its choice of fouling the national space at a time compatriots are observing the blessings of Eid el fitri?” the party questioned.

PDP added that “It is most reprehensible that after pushing Nigerians into anguish and economic misery, the crisis-ridden APC will not allow our people to celebrate the end of Ramadan in peace.

“It is imperative to state that the PDP, as a responsible party, will not join the APC in its shameless dance, yet, the APC must know that it must answer for its failures, depravities and unrestrained looting of our national treasury in the last four years.

“This is the same APC, whose National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole, confirmed as a sanctuary of looters and unpatriotic people, when he declared that, ‘once you join the APC, your sins are forgiven.’

“It has also become clear to Nigerians that the APC is fixated on the PDP and has become feverish by the reinvention of the PDP to serve the interest of the people. This is in addition to the fact that majority of Nigerians now believe more in our party, the PDP, after seeing through the lies, deceit and failures of the APC and its government.”

PDP said that APC must face the truism that having divided the people, wrecked the once robust economy, returned the nation to a debtor status and brought so much misery to the extent that compatriots now resort to suicide and slavery mission abroad as options, Nigerians cannot continue to lend it any support.

“The determined optimism expressed by majority of Nigerians for the retrieval of our stolen presidential mandate at the tribunal as well as the spontaneous jubilation across the country over the victory of the PDP in state governorship elections shows that the people are eager to have the PDP back at the saddle of governance.

“This is because, while in office, the PDP, as a people-oriented party, remained dedicated to the wellbeing of the people.

“The PDP administration salvaged our nation from a pariah status, paid off our foreign debts, grew the economy to become one of the fastest growing economies on the world map, revolutionised our aviation, telecommunication, automobile, education, agriculture, sports, entertainment, health, housing, railway, power and other critical sectors of our economy for the good of the people,” PDP said.

The party, therefore, counsels the APC to seek restitution for the misery it has caused the nation instead of always looking for scapegoats where none exists.
