BY AMOS DUNIA, ABUJA – The All Progressives Congress (APC), on Thursday took a swipe at the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), saying it is now clear that the opposition Party has assumed the role of comic relief ahead of the 2019 general elections.
The ruling Party which was responding to claims by the PDP that six APC governors and 27 National Assembly members have ‘concluded discussions’ to join it, said that Nigerians have rejected the PDP and all that it represents – corruption, impunity, waste, greed.
A statement by the Acting National Publicity Secretary of the APC, Mr. Yekini Nabena said that in the face of imminent 2019 defeat, the PDP has chosen to hide behind lies and false realities to save face.
Nabena said while the PDP hallucinates on APC members’ defection to the PDP, the APC is consolidating to go into the 2019 general elections as a smarter, more united and stronger political fighting force.
He also said; “While the PDP wallows in its cooked up tales on the state of the nation, the President Muhammadu Buhari administration-led APC administration is focused on bettering the lives of Nigerians, addressing infrastructure needs, revamping the economy, restoring our rank in the comity of progressive nations, confronting the challenges we face as a nation and generally repositioning the country in line with the Change Agenda promised Nigerians.”
