The All Progressives Congress (APC) has said that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is making rash and wild accusations against the APC-led federal government in its bid to derail it from delivering dividends of democracy to Nigerians.
The party in a statement issued in Lagos yesterday by its national publicity secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed said the ceaseless accusations has confirmed its earlier statement that the PDP has perfected plans to distract the Buhari administration from its onerous task of reviving the country’s fortunes.
“The PDP is wondering why we are not responding to the wild accusations emanating from their fertile imagination. It is because we consider the accusations nothing but an irritant,’’ APC said.
It said there is no doubt that in issuing his bombastic statements, the PDP spokesman most often mistakes the APC for his party, hence he keeps attributing to the APC the failings of his own party, the same failings that have propelled the former ruling party into the opposition.
“Mr. Metuh wrote that ‘this administration must come to terms with the fact that democracy requires accountability, adherence to the rule of law and constitutional order’. Very interesting, because if the PDP had known all that, it would still have remained in power at the centre.
“It is therefore clear that the PDP spokesman has been so traumatized by the defeat of his party that he sometimes imagines he is writing about the APC when indeed he is listing the failings of his fallen party, the PDP,’’ APC said.
The party challenged Metuh to substantiate the claim in his statement about contracts allegedly awarded to the APC national spokesman or be ready to do so in court.
