The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has claimed that the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) and the Presidency are fighting over positions in the yet to be constituted ‘Next Level’ cabinet of President Muhammadu Buhari.
This was made known in a statement on Saturday by the National Publicity Secretary of the main opposition party, Kola Ologbodinyan.
He stated that the vicious fight for positions as ‘booty’ of a “stolen mandate further exposes the APC and the cabal in the Buhari Presidency as power mongers who are only interested in power-grabbing, treasury-looting and plundering of our national patrimony.”
“Nigerians watched as a faction within the power-grabbing APC, in a loud protest in our nation’s seat of power, Abuja, earlier in the week, listed the Chief of Staff, Abba Kyari, Mr President’s cousin, Mamman Daura and his long-standing friend, Isa Funtua as members of the said cabal that have appropriated the Presidency and held President Buhari hostage.
“In a counter-protest, the supporters of the cabal had also accused a prominent APC governor of a North West state and his ‘brother’, who is a prominent former minister and former governor of a South-South state, as those fanning the embers of discord in the Presidential Villa to achieve their desperate ambition for power in 2023.
“The despicable scenario is a pointer to the disposition of the APC, as a sanctuary of power mongers and looters, as well as accounts for the unpardonable selfish reason the APC and President Buhari’s handlers (allegedly), rigged the presidential election.
“Moreover, this shameful infighting dragged to the streets, is a further confirmation of President Buhari’s incompetence and leadership failure, which is directly responsible for the painful economic and security situation which our nation has sunk in the last four years.”
