'APC having secret meetings with our members,’ PDP spokesperson says

The PDP also accused the APC of making phantom promises to its members and trying to create a one-party system in Nigeria.

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has accused the All Progressives Congress (APC) of having secret meetings with its members in order to destabilize it.

The claims were contained in a statement released on Sunday, April 20, 2015, by PDP National Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh.

The statement reads:

“We are aware that as part of the plot, APC in the past few weeks, has been luring and encouraging some of our members to issue derogatory statements against the leadership of our party.”

“While some of their accomplices have openly decamped, we know that others have been instructed to stay back and cause crisis within our ranks. Even in states where they lost, APC has engaged in violence and instigating crisis all in the bid to impose a one-party system in the country.”

“Alhaji Mohammed, in his usual ill-mannered and condemnable approach, left the issues and dwelt on insults, disdainful comments and personal attacks. Is Alhaji Mohammed feigning ignorance of the various recent open and nocturnal meetings of his party with highly-respected members of PDP?”

“Furthermore, PDP National Publicity Secretary does not need Alhaji Mohammed’s so-called six weeks crash course in party publicity. He does not need a course on how to insult and denigrate the office and person of the President of our country. PDP will do no such thing, but only focus on constructive criticism.”

Metuh had earlier warned of a plot to destabilize the PDP, a claim which APC publicity secretary, Lai Mohammed dismissed.

Mohammed further offered Metuh a crash course in being an opposition party spokesperson.
