The PDP in a statement on Saturday, 28th November by its spokesperson, Kola Ologbondiyan argued that the political moves by the APC to convince Nigerians to accept it in 2023, barely one year into the second term of President Buhari is evidence that the current administration has failed.
The major opposition party added that the early moves by APC is a signal that the party is afraid of being rejected by Nigerians in 2023.
Ologbondiyan stated that the failure of the APC as a party to manage its internal affairs has translated into the inability of the Buhari administration to make any meaningful impact on the development of Nigeria since when it came to power in 2015.
He said “given its failures; the conversation about a possible change of their party’s name as well as the plot to destabilize the PDP, are signs of desperation to hold on to power despite APC’s failures and explicit rejection by Nigerians.”
He added that: “Our party and indeed discerning Nigerians have seen through the rambling of the APC, which is merely raising dusts to foul the political firmament in a bid to cover for its lack of internal cohesion, failure in governance and reneging on the promises they made to Nigerians in other to have access to power.
“The attitude and character of the APC have manifestly shown that it is mortally afraid to stand election in 2023, given that Nigerians have seen through their antics and are determined not to have anything to do with such a deceitful, beguiling, divisive and incompetent party in future elections.
“APC has shown that it is a party without conscience; the reason it has failed, in the last five years, to bring together a Board of Trustees that ought to serve as the custodian of its supposed ideals and principles.
“It is therefore not surprising that under five years, the APC has remained inchoate, uncoordinated, rudderless and totally unable to operate a steady and stable national leadership; a situation that shows why their administration is plagued with confusion, infighting, widespread corruption and collapse of central command structure of governance.
“It is equally not unexpected that APC’s illegal, factional and lazy national caretaker committee would resort to lies, deceit and political scavenging, given that it has no ideas to proffer to its failed government on critical issues of governance, particularly security and economy.”
The PDP submitted that the APC has wasted its goodwill with Nigerians, further arguing that Mai Mala Buni has abandoned his constitutional role as the Governor of Yobe State to be chasing shadows as the APC caretaker committee Chairman, adding: “Surely, Nigeria is better with PDP.”
It, therefore, urged Buni, “to stop chasing shadows and go back to Yobe State, which has almost been taken over by bandits, since he abandoned his electoral mandate for politics in Abuja.”
