The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) said yesterday that the alliance that crystallised into the emerging All Progressive Congress (APC) will soon be in disarray.
Publicity Secretary of the party, Chief Olisa Metuh made the revelation in reaction to statement credited to leadership of the APC that it will win more states in the 2015 general elections.According to him, the alliance will soon be in disarray, stressing that those in the ranks will be betrayed and victimised by godfathers who see the coalition as their personal estate.
“We welcome the opposition to the contest. However, they are already doomed to failure because Nigerians have since realised their undemocratic tendencies and desperation for selfish reasons. Nigerians know that they are merely strange bed fellows, who have nothing to offer but united by bitterness, frustration, religious and tribal sentiments and not for national interest”, he said.
He said the opposition has continued to betray their lusts and inner disposition by their utterances in seeking to seize power adding that they fail to realise that in a democracy power is not seized but conferred by the people, this he said account for the reason Nigerians have continued to identify with the PDP.
“The PDP believes in the people. No individual, group or tribe owns the PDP. It belongs to all Nigerians. The PDP is a big family, united in freedom. In a family there are bound to be divergence of opinions and views and this occurs where people are free. What outsiders see as internal disagreements is actually a reflection of the democratic stance of the PDP. The PDP is the only party where people are absolutely free to express their view and freely canvass their opinion unlike in the opposition parties where the views and opinions of members are muzzled by the godfathers”, he said.
