BY EVELYN DADU, ABUJA – The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Monday mocked the All Progressives Congress (APC) over it described as “flopped” membership registration drive, noting that the ruling party’s three weeks extension will not change the public rejection that greeted the exercise and the APC as a party.

The PDP also mocked the APC for becoming stuck with its phony exercise following serious confusion and violent disagreements in their fold, after their plot to announce humongous fictitious figures and presenting a heavily padded membership register was busted.

A statement by the National Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Mr Kola Ologbondiyan, said that it is already aware of the confusion in the APC after genuine report from the field indicated a huge reduction in APC membership profile.

The PDP further said; “Given that more than half of its members across the federation refused to revalidate their membership while most regular Nigerians who they approached, responded with vehement apathy.

“Nigerians are also aware of the bitter disagreement among desperate APC power mongers from Kogi, Lagos and Kaduna states over allocation of membership figures as well as location for final compilation of APC fictitious membership inventory.

“The public now know why the APC desperately sidestepped its original membership register, in the fraudulent exercise, as revealed by the recent outburst of the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed.

“It is indeed instructive that Nigerians have rejected the APC despite being lured with money in Taraba, Kogi, Imo, Kaduna and other states; despite the threats in Kano as well as attempt at night registration in Enugu and some other states.

“Such rejection only goes to validate the fact that majority of Nigerians are not ready to dine on the same table with the APC, even with the longest of spoons,” the party said.

The PDP therefore counselws the APC not to waste its time with the shenanigan of an extension as such cannot change the reality of their rejection by Nigerians.

The PDP said; “Our party commends Nigerians for not allowing the APC, a party that has brought so much devastation, pain and anguish and which has nothing to offer for the future of our nation, to beguile and trap them again with a fraudulent membership drive”.

The PDP expressed appreciation for the overwhelming support it has been receiving from Nigerians in working together in the national consensus to rescue the nation from the misrule of the APC by reelecting the PDP come 2023, so as to return the nation to the path of peace, national cohesion and economic prosperity.
