The All Progressives Congress, APC says the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP is hallucinating for claiming that six of its governors were planning to defect to the opposition party.
– According to the ruling party, the PDP has assumed the role of comic relief ahead of the 2019 general elections
– The party said while the PDP hallucinated on its members’ defection, it was consolidating to go into the 2019 general elections as a smarter, more united and stronger political fighting force.
National publicity secretary of the party, Yekini Nabena, stated this in a statement on Thursday, September, 6.
“it is now clear that the party has assumed the role of comic relief ahead of the 2019 general elections.
“Nigerians have rejected the PDP and all that it represents – corruption, impunity, waste and greed.”
Nabena added that in the face of imminent defeat in 2019, the PDP had chosen to hide behind lies and false realities to save its face.
He said that while the PDP hallucinated on APC members’ defection to its camp, the APC was consolidating to go into the 2019 general elections as a smarter, more united and stronger political fighting force.
He said that while the PDP wallowed in its pains, the President Muhammadu Buhari-led APC administration was focused on improving the lives of Nigerians, addressing infrastructure needs and revamping the economy.
It had been reported that the Peoples Democratic Party confirmed that it was rounding up discussions with the All Progressives Congress governors and lawmakers, ahead of their defection to the opposition party.
The disclosure was made in a statement released by the party’s national publicity secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, on Wednesday, September 5.
Ologbondiyan disclosed that the PDP had already concluded discussions with six APC governors and 27 APC members in the National Assembly, who had reportedly also drawn their consultations and secured the mandates of their constituents to move to the PDP ahead of the 2019 general election.
