The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP has said that the Nigeria ruling party, All Progressives Congress (APC) is bitter over overwhelming achievement by the opposition party.
The Nigeria main opposition stated this in a statement delivered to newsmen a few days ago in Abuja through its National Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Mr. Kola Ologbondiyan.
Naija News understands that PDP in the statement titled, “APC Is Bitter, Envious of Our Governors,” warning APC against threatened its party governors.
According to Ologbondiyan, leaders of the APC “were embittered over the sterling performance of PDP governors which has further endeared Nigerians to the opposition party.”
The PDP further condemns the ruling party, noting that the party is envious of the “stability and unanimity in the PDP as well as the resilience of its leaders, despite the attempts by the APC and its government, to sow seeds of discord within its fold.”
The PDP statement read in part, “Nigerians can see the frustration in the APC leadership, which has now resorted to vicious smear campaigns and media attacks on our governors and leaders, having failed in all their sneaky plots to lure them to look the way of the defunct APC.
“It is therefore not strange to us that the Secretary of APC’s illegal national caretaker committee, Senator James Akpanudoedehe, has been detailed, as new APC spokesperson, to commence a coordinated attack on our governors.
“We are aware that this is part of the desperate bid to distract and drag down our performing governors to the level of their APC counterparts, who have become a collective symbol of failure in our contemporary political history.
“It is laughable that the APC caretaker secretary is challenging the Rivers State Governor, Chief Nyesom Wike, to name APC leaders attempting to lure our governors, whereas he, Akpanudoedehe, is aware of how the APC leadership, to which he belongs, have been going round our governors and leaders genuflecting for audience, only to receive mere photo opportunities. We caution the APC caretaker secretary to be more circumspect in challenging anybody to call out names, as such could put him in a very indefensible situation as his own roles and itinerary in the APC leadership are not hidden to us.”
Ologbondiyan further described the APC caucus as nothing more than “a failed association masquerading as a political party; plagued with internal wrangling and illegal leadership,” who nobody wants to associate with.”
According to him, the party would only be remembered for its “corruption, treasury looting, turning our nation into a failed state, instituting poverty and hardship, and supporting terrorists, bandits, and kidnappers ravaging the people,” when it levels the presidency in 2023.
He added, “It is therefore imperative to state that our governors, by all ratings and ramifications, cannot be in the same class with non-performing APC governors.
“In that regard, we counsel the APC Caretaker, as the new undertakers of the APC to steer clear of our party and concentrate on their task of winding down the APC, which began with the collapse of their structures nationwide.”
When contacted, the Secretary of the Caretaker/ Extra-Ordinary National Convention Planning Committee, Senator John AkpanUdoedehe, said, “We wish all Nigerians a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.”
He stated this when he led Governor Okezie Ikpeazu of Rivers to inaugurate the chief Orabule Adiele Road, Rumuolumeni, in Obio/Akpor Local Government Area of Rivers State on Thursday, Naija News reports.
