“You Are Nigeria’s Problem”, PDP Replies APC Over Wike


Press Statement

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) says the All Progressives Congress

(APC) is Nigeria’s major problem, noting that the ruling party has

proven to be nothing but a despotic platform; a soulless mob and

political virus that has no interest in the wellbeing of Nigerians.

The PDP berated the APC leadership over its unwarranted tirade against

River state Governor Nyesom Wike’s unflawed comments on the overbearing

conduct of APC leadership, particularly in trying to impose itself on

the people of Edo state.

The PDP however notes that the outburst by the vindictive APC

leadership, under Adams Oshiomhole, does not reflect the views and

opinions of majority of APC governors and democratically minded leaders

in the APC, who are completely averse to the unbridled impunity being

exhibited by the national leadership of the party.

Our party invites Nigerians to note that such impunity, arrogance,

egoism, recklessness and disdain for rules and order, which are

symptomatic of crass incompetence and cluelessness, are at the root of

the problems, which the APC, under the leadership of Adams Oshiomhole,

has brought upon our nation.

It is on record that the contemporary political, security and economic

situation in our country has never been as bad as being experienced

under the current APC leadership, which has brought nothing but

confusion, acrimony, failures and impunity, within the ruling party and

its government, leading to the perilous situations in our nation today.

Our party stressed that Governor Wike’s position reflects that of most

APC members, particularly in Edo state.  Sadly, the Oshiomhole-led

leadership has become so irredeemable in its arrogance that it cannot

realize that it is standing alone, particularly, on all issues related

to Edo state governorship election.

Majority of Nigerians are aware how Governor Wike and other PDP leaders

across board, have been resisting the relentless ploy by the APC

leadership to destroy our democracy, subjugate our citizens and

appropriate their wishes and aspiration, especially during elections.

It is therefore not surprising that the APC leadership, having been

exposed, would resort to hauling of invectives and tirades on Governor

Wike and other democratically minded Nigerians.

Our party sternly cautions that it would not accept any such venting of

frustration by the APC on any of our governors or members.

The PDP holds that the APC leadership should blame nobody but itself for

its self-inflicted problems and come to terms with the fact that the

train has already left the station.
