Reacting in a statement on Monday which was signed by Mallam Lanre Issa-Onilu, its National Publicity Secretary, the APC said the call by PDP has ‘exposed the joke the opposition party has turned itself into in our nation’s political space.’
It will be recalled that the PDP in a statement on Monday through its spokesperson, Kola Ologbondiyan, has asked the Supreme Court to review its judgement on the presidential election that affirmed President Muhammadu Buhari’s victory in the 2019 presidential election.
It also urged the Apex Court to review judgment in respect of governorship elections in Kaduna, Kano, Katsina and Osun state, which the party lost to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
The opposition party noted that the review was needed due to APC’s move seeking a review of the apex court’s judgment on governorship elections in Zamfara and Bayelsa states which the PDP won.
The call by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), asking the Supreme Court to review its rulings on the Presidential Election and governorship elections in Osun, Kano, Kaduna and Katsina States, has, once again, exposed the joke the opposition party has turned itself into in our nation’s political space.
Never in the history of our democratic journey has a political party made mockery of what a responsible opposition politics entails. The PDP’s call has once again, reinforced our party’s belief that the PDP has become a clog in the wheels of our country’s political evolution.
For the All Progressives Congress (APC), PDP’s latest antics is no surprise. Nigerians would recall that we have consistently reiterated that the opposition party, having been overwhelmingly rejected at the polls in 2015 and 2019, has been exhibiting strange behaviours.
We believe it has been difficult for some leaders of PDP to cope for so long outside of power. There is obviously a lot of idleness at the Wadata House Secretariat of PDP.
At this period that our government is working hard to ensure food sufficiency in the country, we urge those jobless characters at the Wadata House to seriously consider taking up rice farming. This would make them useful for our country.
