Going Back To APC Is Forbidden By God
Reacting to the recent defection from the ruling All Progressives Congress to the Opposition party, Peoples Democratic Party, members of the House of Representatives has described the move by APC to make them return to the party as laughable.
It was stated that the move by APC has been forbidden by God, they revealed that the decision to leave the party did not come easy but had to come anyway, stating that other options were weighed but had to defect at the end seeing it as the best option.
The reaction is as a result of the fresh reconciliation moves by the APC and alleged offer of return tickets to the members to contest the 2019 polls.
Recall that Naija News had reported on Tuesday that thirty seven lawmakers defected from the APC, thirty two of the lawmakers defected to the PDP, while four members moved to the African Democratic Congress.
One member has yet to name his new party. Mr. Razak Atunwa, the Coordinator of the 32 defectors, reacted angrily to the thought of returning to the APC.
Atunwa, who is the chairman, House Committee on Justice, said the APC had “limited understanding” of governance, a reason the party reduced the defection to just return ticket.
He said, “Ticket or no ticket, this is a decision that we have taken and we know this is the best.
“We are talking about fundamental national issues, lack of good governance and generally, a government that has failed to deliver on its promises to the Nigerian people.
“When you reduce it to ticket, you make this whole fight look unserious or merely which party has majority or not majority. We are talking about a government that has failed.”
Mr. Bode Ayorinde, who spoke with Punch, stated that God would not allow the members to return to their “vomit.”
He stated that there was no way the APC would attract anyone, considering the alleged injustice being perpetrated in the party.
“God forbids bad thing; that I should return to APC. What for?” Ayorinde added.
Meanwhile, the Peoples Democratic Party says the President Muhammadu Buhari’s Presidency has become a citadel of liars where deceptive lies are churned out daily to beguile Nigerians.
The party was reacting to a presidency statement credited to the Special Adviser to the President on National Assembly Matters, Senator Ita Enang, claiming that members of the National Assembly who defected to the PDP from the All Progressives Congress had agreed to work for Buhari in the 2019 election.
Dispelling the submission as a hallucination of a failing government, the National Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Mr. Kola Ologbondiyan, said the Buhari presidency had become so jittery over its alleged imminent loss of the 2019 election.
He said this was why it had allegedly made recourse to what he called bare-faced lies and childish blackmail.
He, however, said such would not save the disintegrating APC from drowning.
Ologbondiyan, in a statement in Abuja on Friday, stated that those who defected from APC, which he refered to as sinkin ship did so in protest against the incompetence of President Buhari leading to the unabating killings, bloodletting and biting economic hardship across our nation in the last three years.Copyright Naija News 2018.
