-PDP describes Igbokwe’s statement as a “display of unpatriotism, selfishness… .”
The Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) has criticised the Lagos Publicity Secretary of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Joe Igbokwe, for remarking that Nigerians would not trust the PDP with their votes.
Igbokwe made the assertion while responding to the ex-Governor of Imo State, Achike Udenwa’s condemnation of APC for its poor governance.
PDP, in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Dayo Adeyeye, stated that; “Mr. Igbokwe is simply hallucinating and requires serious medical attention to think that Nigerians will vote the APC into power again with all round failures of the Party in government at all levels.”
“Mr. Igbokwe’s Statement is a clear display of unpatriotism, selfishness, desperation and clear indication of how much the APC leaders and supporters are willing to go, to further plunge the Country beyond the present decay.

The opposition party also alleged Igbokwe of partaking in “looting and corruption”.
The party said, “The Rhetorics of the likes of Igbokwe that those complaining of maladministration and ineptitude of the APC Government were partakers of the so called ‘looting and corruption’ further buttresses our earlier assertion that this APC Administration has express agenda to disorganize the Country, promote sectionalism, cause chaos and then blame it on opposition parties especially, the PDP.
Consequently, PDP cautioned Igbokwe and APC to stop peddling unfavourable statements about the PDP.
“In view of the above and more, we therefore warn Mr. Igbokwe and his anti people collaborators in the APC to keep quiet henceforth since it appears they have nothing else to say to launder the Broken and Dilapidated Image of their Party, the APC. Nigerians are not stupid and will never make the Same Mistake of voting the APC in 2019 or any other Elections in future. Again, the Facts are on the Streets!
“Finally, the Oneness and Unity of this Country lies in the Hands of the Electorates and how they will cast their votes in the 2019 Elections. For emphasis, we believe that the Electorates are more informed now, and they know that any vote for the APC in 2019, will be a vote to further promote extreme hunger/starvation, poverty, indebtedness, insecurity, anti-democratic tendencies,” the statement reads.
