The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has advised the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the Nigeria Police to stop fighting a lost battle, as nothing can stop the imminent mass defection from the APC to the PDP across the country.
The PDP pointed out that the Saturday’s despicable attack on Ondo Deputy Governor, Agboola Ajayi, by the APC, using the Ondo State Commissioner of Police, Bolaji Salami, has further spurred Nigerians in their irrevocable determination to abandon the sinking APC and move into the PDP.
The party said this in a statement yesterday by its National Publicity Secretary, Mr Kola Ologbondiyan in Abuja.
The leading opposition party declared that the thoughtless and rude attempt to use the Police to stop the Ondo Deputy Governor from leaving the “disorganized APC” is symptomatic of the last kicks of a degraded and derelict political party that is now clutching at straws and can only resort to use of compromised security agents as face-saving measure.
The APC,the party said, is unnerved because Nigerians are no longer ready to stomach the deception and lies of 2015 as well as the impunity, political brigandage and the electoral fraud of 2019.
According to the statement, “This is because the situation in the country in the last five years have left no one in doubt that the APC is an ill wind; a soulless mob; a decrepit ship of insatiate pirates, political vampires and ravenous power mongers, who thrive in lies, deception and treasury looting; and whose only legacies are economic ruins, institution of poverty, escalated insecurity, confusion, divisiveness, humongous corruption, dissipated reserves and accumulated debts.
“It is therefore a natural national course for democrats in the APC, who have realized that the sinking party is completely irredeemable, to leave the APC in droves with their supporters.
“It is imperative to state that this development is sparking jubilations in every corners and crannies across our country.
