Nigerians won’t return PDP to power, says APC
The All Progressives Congress has said despite the hardship currently being experienced, Nigerians know better and will not return the Peoples Democratic Party to power in 2019.
The National Publicity Secretary of APC, Mallam Bolaji Abdullahi said this in reaction to news that the Supreme Court victory of the Ahmed Makarfi-led Peoples Democratic Party would begin the party’s return to power.
The party spokesman explained that the PDP as a brand had since expired.
Abdullahi said, “We also note with regret, the PDP’s penchant for mocking President Muhammadu Buhari with his health situation. We admit that the health of a president is every citizen’s business.
“It is however, un-African, if not ungodly, to continue to taunt a man and even challenge him to a fight at his moment of weakness. We have seen in the last few days, some members of the PDP who have boasted of defeating President Buhari in 2019.
“No matter the temporary hardship that we may be experiencing, Nigerians know better than to bring the PDP back to power so soon for fear that this time.”
The ruling party has urged Nigerians to continue to support the President Muhammadu Buhari-led APC because “whatever difficulty we are currently going through is only a passing phase.”
