Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) at the weekend took the opposition All Progressives Congress (APC) to the cleaner, describing it as a party of wolves and hypocrites that can never be an alternative to the ruling party.
PDP, in a statement by its spokesman, Olisa Metuh, also described the APC as “a rudderless ship heading for crisis and self destruction.”
The statement said: “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 state categorically that the APC as presently constituted has nothing to offer.
“t is not an alternative to the PDP neither is it an option to Nigerians. Its orchestrated mantra of change remains cosmetic, hypocritical and hollow, unless we now speak of change from democracy to dictatorship.
“By every indication, the APC is a rudderless ship heading for crisis and self destruction. We want Nigerians to note that whilst the leaders of the APC have continued to focus on attacking people and causing confusion, the PDP has focused on sensitising the people as well as strengthening and expanding its support base.”
PDP added that whilst the APC leaders had relegated their duty of organising their party ahead of elections and remain fixated on mischief, the ruling party leaders are working hard to organise its members in all the states, local government and wards of the country for a 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 followership and has no defined presence at the grassroots. On the other hand, the PDP remains the party with the largest number of members and supporters and shall continue to be committed to the national interest for the good of all.”
