The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has said that no politician worth his salt would defect to the All Progressives Congress (APC).

The opposition party also said that the APC has ruined Nigeria’s economy and brought it to an odious level.

The comments were made by PDP South West leaders loyal to the Ahmed Makarfi faction of the party via a communiqué released after a meeting on Tuesday, April 11.

The communiqué reads:

“No politician worth his salt should consider decamping to the ruling Party that has ruined the economy and impoverish Nigerians to this odious level.”

“We are resolved to ensure that our Party, the PDP, will not be hijacked and taken over by fifth columnists and APC agents as represented by the Ali Modu Sheriff group.

“That we take serious view of the impending election in Ekiti and Osun States and therefore resolve to stand in solidarity and absolute support for the Party in the two States as a family. We call on all members of the Party across the Zone to be ready to sacrifice for our victory in the elections.

“We take serious view of the reconciliation meeting convened by President Goodluck Jonathan on Thursday, April 6, 2017 and thus commend him for that initiative and leadership acumen he displayed. Therefore we urge him to continue to take actions that will promote cohesion in the Party and should not be discouraged by dis-honourable attitude displayed by the fifth columnists in our midst.

“We condemn the continuing arrest and wholesale intimidation of leaders and members of our great Party which subsists since the inauguration.

The meeting was attended by Ekiti State Governor, Ayo Fayose, National Vice Chairman, South West, Eddy Olafeso, Senator Iyiola Omisore, former Minister of Special Duties, Elder Wole Oyelese, Jelili Awosiyan, Kayode Amusan and Alhaji Tajudeen Oladipupo.
