The All Progressives Congress, APC, on Tuesday expressed disappointment at the penchant of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, to blame everyone but itself for “its self-inflicted problems which has led to the sorry state the PDP finds itself.”
The ruling party spoke in response to claims by the PDP’s National Secretary, Wale Oladipo that some of its members were being “used by the APC, to draw political capital from the present challenges facing our party (PDP),” stressing that nothing could be funnier than such silly and unfounded allegation.
A statement issued by APC’s Assistant Director of Publicity, Edegbe Odemwingie noted that the PDP now sounds like a broken record “with its daily conspiracy theories blaming external forces and unseen hands for its electoral misfortunes, in-fighting and mind-boggling corruption charges and on-going probe of some PDP leaders and the immediate-past PDP-led administration.”
The statement signed by the party’s National Secretary, Mai Mala Buni further read, “The question begging for answers is: Why does the PDP choose to grope in the dark while reality stares it in the face? Did the PDP not know that it will one day pay for the impunity, recklessness and shocking mis-management of the country’s common wealth perpetuated under its watch for 16 years?
“For the record, the APC has no hand in the in-fighting and resultant implosion being witnessed in PDP’s hierarchy. Perhaps the wind of Change has blown through the PDP camp and many PDP members realise the need to embrace and enforce change.
“The APC reiterates that PDP members who are genuinely inspired by the APC-led administration are welcome to the APC fold. It is their right to abandon a sinking ship and join one that is smooth-sailing.”
