The All Progressives Congress (APC) has said that it would not welcome any more defectors from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
‘Stay in your party,’ APC tells aspiring PDP defectors
The APC further urged aspiring defectors to stay in their party and rebuild it into a formidable opposition party.
The comments were made via a statement released by APC National Publicity Secretary, Lai Mohammed on Wednesday, April 22, 2015 in Abuja.
The statement reads:
“PDP leaders and members are falling over themselves shamelessly and swearing undying allegiance to the APC. Well, in case they did not get the message of the President-elect and our National Chairman, we want to repeat it in very blunt terms: PDP leaders and members, you are not welcome in APC.”
“Please stay in your party, but if – as we suspect – you cannot survive in opposition, then, take a walk, quit politics.”
“The truth of the matter is that the PDP is scared stiff of being in opposition. We don’t blame them as they have neither the capacity nor the commitment to be in opposition. A party that stood for nothing but looting and rent collection will naturally be afraid of being in opposition, where there is nothing to loot or rent to collect.”
PDP National Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh had earlier accused the APC of plotting to turn Nigeria into a one-party state.
