Former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar has stated that the opposition People Democratic Party (PDP) is more trustworthy than the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
Speaking on Saturday before the National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting of the PDP at its National Headquarters in Abuja, Atiku stated that the ruling party has deceived Nigerians for the past six years in power.
The former presidential candidate added that the Muhammadu Buhari administration has shown that Nigerians can trust the PDP again, adding that the party will do better than it had done before.
Speaking on the crisis rocking the PDP, Atiku said the PDP has always overcome its challenges because the party has an efficient crisis management mechanism.
Atiku added that the crisis management process in the PDP is better than that of the APC due to the fact that the opposition party has the most experienced and competent individuals.
He said: “Don’t be surprised that we always try to overcome our internal crisis because if you look at PDP, it has the most experienced people in this country. Whether in the executive wing, whether in the legislature, whether in party administration, we have the most experienced and competent individuals in this party,” he said.
“Therefore, PDP’s internal crisis management is far efficient and far better than APC and even the APC government itself.
“I want to use this opportunity to commend and thank everybody who has been involved in trying to resolve the recent crisis, and Nigerians should no longer be in doubt of our sense of patriotism and our sense of commitment to get this country moving again.
“We have been taken aback by the APC government, and we have shown to Nigerians that when we are trusted again, we will do even better than we have done before.”
