…Says it affirms Nigeria is better with PDP
BY GRACE ANYANWU, ABUJA – The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Sunday asserted that the visit by governors elected on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to former President Goodluck Jonathan has further affirmed that Nigeria, as a nation, is better under the governance of the PDP.
This is as the Party said that it received the visit by APC governors as an apology by the ruling Party to the PDP and Nigerians over what it described as the “lies, beguilements and other irresponsible allegations” deployed by the APC to grab power, only to lead the nation on a journey to nowhere.
The PDP further said that the visit, which is a clear endorsement of the acceptability of the PDP administration, also indicates that the APC, in 2015, only created artificial symbols of misgovernance, corruption and other alleged misgivings just to discredit it (PDP) and grab the levers of power to achieve their selfish desires.
A statement by the National Publicity Secretary of the Party, Mr. Kola Ologbondiyan noted that it is evident that the Jonathan administration succeeded in office basically because the PDP understands the nuances of the nation, which it translated into people-oriented policies and programmes, in line with its manifesto, to make life comfortable for Nigerians.
According to the PDP; “This visit to Jonathan by the APC governors is a direct acceptance of the successes recorded by our party in building a strong nation with a virile economy that was rated as one of the fastest growing economies of the world.
“The visit is therefore a subtle step by APC governors into the corridors of the PDP in agreement that our party holds the solution to the myriads of problems brought to our nation by their APC and President Muhammadu Buhari,” it said.
The PDP therefore cautioned Nigerians to be watchful of the antics of the APC that have failed in governance and the management of its own affairs.
It further said; “For us in the PDP, the unity, stability, progress and development of our dear nation remain paramount and as such, we will not allow the failed APC and its pranksters, who have betrayed the trust of Nigerians, to mislead them once again”.
