2023: PDP Trying To Destabilize Nigeria But The Party Will Die If It Doesn’t Change – Presidency Blows Hot

 

I Was Against Babangida For A Long Time Because Of My Love For Buhari - Femi Adesina

The presidency on Tuesday accused the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) of scheming to destabilize Nigeria so it can get back to power in 2023.

The statement from the presidency issued by the Special Adviser to President Muhammadu Buhari on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina said PDP is unpatriotic and doesn’t wish the country well.

The statement cautioned that the PDP might be on its way to extinction if it has nothing good to wish Nigeria as a country.

The presidency statement comes after an earlier statement by the PDP on Sunday in which the opposition party said President Buhari has not only failed, but also abdicated his responsibilities and the frustration in the country can trigger another round of protests worse than the recent #EndSARS protests if the situation is not addressed immediately.

Responding, Mr. Adesina said the PDP is still unhappy that Nigerians kicked it out of power in 2015 and voted for the All Progressives Congress (APC), urging the party to stop threatening the citizens with anarchy.

“The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has given itself away as being interested only in the destabilization of the country, peradventure it could then sneak its way back to power,” he said.

“Less than 24 hours after the Department of State Services (DSS) raised alarm about sinister plots by some elements to cause disorder in the land, using the energy crisis as a smokescreen, the PDP issued a statement, saying; “Our party fears that the situation is getting to a boiling point and can trigger a nationwide agitation that might be worse than the October 2020 EndSARS if not addressed immediately.

“Which patriotic political party or organization ever threatens its country with anarchy, social upheaval and disorderliness, except one still smarting from its snout being yanked from the honeypot, as happened to PDP in 2015?”

“But we wish to remind the now tepid opposition party that it was Nigerians that gave it the boot 7 years ago, and those same Nigerians have not forgotten the travails they experienced, at a time the country was awash with money: no power, no infrastructure, insurgents ran riot round the nation, and our collective patrimony was looted blind. Those same Nigerians are not ready for another PDP misrule, not now, and perhaps not for a long time to come.”

Adesina cautioned the PDP against wishing Nigeria evil but rather “work for harmony and cohesion in the country, if it ever understood such concept.”

“EndSARS signified murder, mayhem, mass destruction, even cannibalism. PDP now wishes Nigeria something worse,” he said.

“A presidential aspirant of the PDP has warned that the party would die by 2023 unless it wins the Number One position in the country. And die it would if the party wishes the country nothing except something worse than EndSARS.”
