The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has told the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) to stop hallucinating about winning the 2023 presidential election in Nigeria.
This position was stated on Wednesday by the PDP National Publicity Seretary, Debo Ologunagba in response to an earlier claim by the APC National Chairman, Abdullahi Adamu that the ruling party currently has a 43 million membership base and hence it cannot lose the elections.
As earlier reported by Naija News, Adamu made the assertion during an interaction with the Polish Ambassador to Nigeria, Joanna Tarnawska in his office in Abuja.
However, Ologunagba in his response said Nigerians are wiser and won’t vote for the APC in 2023. He added that the people of the country are tired of the suffering and punishment brought upon them by the incumbent administration and are ready to vote for a better alternative.
The PDP spokesman told the APC Chairman that the votes and supports he claims his party enjoys are simply imaginary and a product of hallucination.
“Who are the 43 million Nigerians the APC is banking on? Are they the ones that are hungry, whose lives have been cut short or whose children have been kidnapped? Abdullahi Adamu is hallucinating. That’s how I can describe it.
“(The) APC is a party that came in as an SPV (Special Purpose Vehicle). They came into governance with lies, fraud and deceit. They have forgotten that Nigerians are wiser now. The truth is that every SPV is for a purpose but this one is liquidating. The lies of 2015 will not help them anymore.
“Are they talking about imaginary 43 million Nigerians who can’t travel by road or rail and whose children cannot go to school because of the ASUU strike?” he queried.
The PDP spokesman added that since the APC’s advent to power in 2015, the party and its government has brought nothing but evil and pain to Nigerians.
He added that their stay in power ends in 2023.
“Nigerians are wiser now. We knew that we made a mistake in going to them. All they brought us was chaos and they will face the waterloo in 2023.
“They even have a presidential candidate who announced openly on national television that he brought the pain that the APC government headed by President Muhammadu Buhari represents on Nigerians. In a saner environment, that presidential candidate should be apologising to Nigerians,” he stated.
