Governing party advises PDP to stop defections dream

By Aanya Igomu


Nigeria’s main opposition the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP has been advised to focus on the reality of the forthcoming 2019 General Election rather than dreaming about members of the governing All Progressives Congress, APC defecting to the party.

The advice is on the heels of the claims that six APC Governors and 27 National Assembly members are set to defect to the PDP.

“With the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) claims, it is now clear that it has assumed the role of comic relief ahead of the 2019 General Elections.

“Nigerians have rejected the PDP and all that it represents; corruption, impunity, waste, and greed. Hence, in the face of imminent 2019 defeat, the PDP has chosen to hide behind lies and false realities to save face,” the Press statement released by the APC Acting National Publicity Secretary, Mr Yekini Nabena said.

APC says ”it is focused on becoming a smarter, more united and stronger political force in order to win the 2019 General Election.”

“While the PDP wallows in its cooked up tales on the state of the nation, the President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration is focused on bettering the lives of Nigerians, addressing infrastructure needs, revamping the economy as well as restoring our rank in the comity of progressive nations, confronting the challenges we face as a nation and generally repositioning Nigeria in line with the Change Agenda promised to the people,” the Governing party said.
