‘APC hasn’t shown any sign of seriousness,’ Opposition party says

The PDP said that the development has revealed APC’s double standards and blackmail upon which the ruling party rode to power.

PDP National Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has criticized the All Progressives Congress (APC) for the current crisis brewing in the latter party over National Assembly positions.

This was contained in statement released by PDP National Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh on Sunday, June 7, 2015.

It reads:

“The APC must understand that the hallmark of democracy is freedom of expression and opinion, particularly on governance issues; inalienable rights of all citizens guaranteed by the constitution and which must not be denied them under any guise whatsoever.”

“Though we had decided to give President Muhammadu Buhari and the ruling party time to settle down, indicators show that the APC is not getting its bearing right and the PDP as a party that has nurtured and sustained democracy in the last 16 years, we cannot fold our hands and watch our nation drift towards dangerous undemocratic paths.”

“The concern of well-meaning Nigerians is that this may be a pointer to the fact that the APC lacks clear-cut directions on how to govern a nation as complex as Nigeria.”

“The PDP observed that though some jostling for political offices are expected among politicians in a democracy, Nigerians are not comfortable with the confusion in the APC camp and the dimension it has assumed.”

“The negative effect of the glaring political commotion in the APC is compounding President Buhari’s self-confessed nervousness and puzzlement, his flip-flops and worrisome reneging on campaign promises for which Nigerians will continue to hold him accountable.”

“Instead of fighting for positions, which betrays their lust, APC leaders should be more concerned with how to help President Buhari, who is still struggling with his ministerial list and basic appointments more than a week after his inauguration.”

“They should be more concerned with how to end insurgency by the end of July as promised by President Buhari in his April 2, 2015 CNN interview.”

“They should be concerned about how to pay N5,000 each to 25 million poor Nigerians beginning from the end of June; how to bring the naira to the same value with the dollar; provide allowances to the discharged but unemployed Youth Corps members for Twelve (12) months; provide free education and meals for school children among others as they promised during the campaigns.”

“We invite the APC to note the concern of Nigerians that the pictures emanating from their camp are not reassuring in this direction.”
