2019: Power-mongers in APC killing democracy – PDP
Meanwhile, the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, said yesterday that the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, was already passing through death throes and pre-election trauma as its leaders were now in a frenzy over the baggage of an extremely unpopular Presidential candidate, ahead of the 2019 general election.
The PDP said the confusion, backstabbing and vicious scheming in the APC was a sad testimony of a party that had “become politically decapitated by the evident dishonesty, greed, selfishness and lust for power by its incompetent leaders.”
PDP National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, in a statement, said it was now clear that the APC was an ideologically shallow movement and a special purpose vehicle put together by egoistic strange bedfellows just for the purpose of grabbing political power without knowledge in the use of same.
“The APC is stewing in its own venomous broth. The nation can now see why, even with a sitting President, the party is still finding it difficult to agree on simple issues, but always attempts to circumvent and violate the laws to push desperate agenda of their selfish leaders.
“We call on Nigerians not to be deceived by the sudden law-abiding stance of the APC, as it is merely cosmetic and meant to cloak their hidden but soon-to-be manifested plots to manipulate the laws to push a self-succession plan of their incompetent candidate.
“It is evident that APC has never had anything to offer Nigerians other than confusion, disagreements, economic recession, bad national image and painful bloodletting.
“Nigerians must, therefore, remain alert and very wary of all activities of power mongers in the APC, who are so mortally afraid of elections that they are ready to destroy our democratic institution to achieve their selfish agenda of perpetuating themselves in power to the peril of our dear nation,” the statement read.
