Nigeria’s ruling party, the All Progressives Congress (APC), says the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has been sinking since Uche Secondus became its chairman.
The party said this after Secondus criticised the President Muhammadu Buhari-led APC administration.
In a statement on Monday, the APC said the main opposition party became “rudderless under his (Mr Secondus) watch” and alleged that party’s stakeholders had detached from its activities.
“Under Secondus, the PDP has never had it this bad with the opposition party’s stakeholders detached from the party activities as was witnessed with notable PDP leaders boycotting the party’s 2019 presidential campaigns and the recent Bayelsa State Governorship bribe-for-ticket scandal that indicted Secondus.
“Little wonder, the recent months have witnessed many PDP members resign their membership due to Secondus activities which has brought the PDP to its knees,” said the APC spokesperson, Yekini Nabena.
Nabena, comparing the current APC administration with the 16 years rule of the PDP, said: “free, fair and credible elections is the new normal”.
“Voting power is fast returning to the people and the era of stolen and procured votes is fast-fading.
“We reiterate that President Buhari’s declaration that the APC could have used the military and other security services to overrun opposition states in the 2019 general election but chose free, fair elections is a solid pointer and demonstration of our proven democratic and progressive credentials,” he said.
Nabena called on members of the opposition party to join the APC before it ‘sinks’ under Secondus watch.
