The National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Senator
Sheriff stated this on Tuesday, April 5, while inaugurating four committees of the party - the convention, Reconciliation, Finance and Zoning committees.
“The leadership of the party shares the pains of Nigerians after one year in office of the APC. Nigerians now have an opportunity to compare the PDP and the APC and Nigerians are the ultimate judges. Instead of APC providing solution, the APC is blaming PDP for lack of petrol in Nigeria. I would like to advise the leaders of APC to stop blaming the PDP. We are now in opposition, re positioning the party to show Nigerians that we can do better,” he said.
Sheriff also accused the APC of mobilizing its governors from other states to come to Abuja to compromise the council elections scheduled for the Federal Capital Territory on Saturday, April 9.
“I have heard from reliable sources that governors of APC who are not resident of FCT want to come to the FCT for the election on Saturday. We will not allow anybody to rig us out.
"If they bring one governor, we will also bring in one governor. If they bring one former governors we will also bring in one former governor. We will not be part of any violence but we will protect our votes. Our votes must be counted and winners must be announced. There should be no inconclusive elections in the FCT,” he said.
The national leader of the APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, had on Saturday, April 2, blamed the ongoing fuel scarcityacross the country on the PDP, saying the party destroyed Nigeria during its 16-year rule.
