PDP Says APC Party of Hypocrites, Wolfs
Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has accused the All Progressives Congress
working with external forces to undermine the country's democracy.
The PDP in a statement by its spokesman Chief Oliseh Metuh said “We have
the ill-conceived and wicked offensive deployed by the APC wherein it has now
resorted to attacking the personality of individuals and institutions of
using a section of the media.
“In the last few days, the media have been awash with paid write-ups and
advertorials by the APC using resources meant for the development of their
castigate, discredit and ridicule PDP officials and other well meaning
in the country.
“It is rather despicable that instead of coming out with tangible
would delink it from the negatives for which Nigerians have rejected it,
now haunted by its ugly shadow, has resorted to yet another diversionary
propaganda, blackmail and falsehood, this time, using paid consultants
as newspaper columnists to attack and insult individuals including the
President Goodluck Jonathan.
“We however wish to restate that the PDP is not perturbed by these attacks
cannot deter us from exposing the APC. We completely stand by our position
APC is a party of unpatriotic persons whose agenda is to destroy our
the unity we enjoy as a nation.
“This wave of attack is clearly part of APC's “Janjaweed” ideology of
and inciting the people against individuals, especially government
furtherance of the plot to undermine the system and balkanize the nation
ethnic and religious lines ahead of the 2015 general elections; an agenda
“We are aware that the APC has engaged the services of foreigners who have
been imported into the country to do the hatchet job in collaboration with
consultants who pocket as much as N5 million naira for each negative
“We are however aware of failed efforts by the APC to compromise credible
columnists and bloggers, who for the love of our dear country and fear of God
refused to be made agents of destabilization.
“Nigerians must insist that the APC declares the source of the billions of
with which it is sponsoring the negative publications. We must ensure that
are not coming from the resources meant for the development of their
the people are already subjected to untold hardship on account of the
heavy taxes by the APC.
“As an ill-bred party, it is not surprising that the APC has continued to
crass hatred for the President even to the extent of unleashing their
attack innocent citizens for the singular reason of being in possession
of President Goodluck Jonathan.
“Nigerians are now aware that the APC is a party of hypocrites; of wolves in
messianic robes seeking to deceive with the promise of change. We wish to
categorically that the APC as presently constituted has nothing to offer.
It is not
an alternative to the PDP neither is it an option to Nigerians. Its
mantra of change remains cosmetic, hypocritical and hollow, unless we now
change from democracy to dictatorship.
“By every indication, the APC is a rudderless ship heading for crisis and
destruction. We want Nigerians to note that whilst the leaders of the APC
continued to focus on attacking people and causing confusion, the PDP has
sensitizing the people as well as strengthening and expanding its support
“Whilst the APC leaders have relegated their duty of organizing their
party ahead of
elections and remain fixated on mischief, PDP leaders are working hard to
our members in all the states, local government and wards of the country
successful outing in 2015.
“Nigerians must note that as we match towards the general elections, the
APC has no
single democratic structure on the ground. It still lacks genuine
has no defined presence at the grassroot. On the other hand, the PDP
party with the largest number of members and supporters and shall continue
committed to the national interest for the good of all.
“We wish to remind the APC that he who fails to work, works to fail. This
ultimate fate that awaits them in 2015 and they should have nobody but
blame. Of course, as bad losers, the only plan the APC has perfected is to
the people and unleash mayhem in furtherance of its greater plot to
democracy by reenacting the ugly experience of December 1983. This agenda
failed as Nigerians are no longer in the dark regarding who the true
enemies of our
dear country are.”
