The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP has described the newly formed All Progressives Congress, APC an illusion with leaders who are ‘politically naïve adding that the party will drive Nigeria to socio-political and economic brink should it be entrusted with power.
In a statement signed by the National Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Olisa Metuh, the party said the reality on the ground has shown that the leaders of the APC have been grandstanding while “the first chapter of their history was yet to be successfully written. Nigerians are here confronted with an irony! It is an irony of a political party who without adequate planning, without a solid working rhythm, yet wishes to be entrusted to its effete, shaky shoulders, the fate of over One Hundred and Sixty Million Nigerians,” Mr. Metuh said in the statement.
“How can a group who could not conclude the basic as in due registration of its name be able to manage the affairs of Nigeria at this moment of critical challenge”, the statement said adding that the parties that formed the APC have displayed their penchant for arrogance and deceit.
“How can a politician worth his onions leave a known, formidable and nationwide political party for a disparate and unregistered amalgam?” the party asked. “This false claim is also a window into the minds of the leaders of the coalition. The summary is that they are waiting for decampees from the PDP to build their party, perhaps, register it for them. What an illusion! What a self delusion!”
