‘Seun Ibukun-Oni, Abuja – The ruling All Progressives Congress, APC has blasted the chairman of People’s Democratic Party, PDP for passing the blame of the intractable crisis in his party rather than facing them squarely.
This position was contained in a statement signed by the National Publicity Secretary, Felix Morka today, September 6, 2022.
The statement reads in part: “As he struggled to deny a statement credited to him that Governor Nyesom Wike could not father a child, the National Chairman of the opposition People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Sen. Iyorchia Ayu, alleged, ridiculously, that the All Progressives Congress (APC) and “other mischievous people” were planting such stories in the media and stoking the feud between him and the Rivers State Governor.
Chiding Ayu for his bulk passing with the attendant consequence of a deteriorating crisis, he said: “Understandably, Chairman Ayu is deep in quicksand and swinging wildly in search of third parties to blame for the internal combustion in the party that he leads.
“With such an escapist mindset, it is not difficult to see why the meltdown in the PDP has proved intractable on his watch. Lacking forthrightness and character to accept responsibility for the crisis in his party, how can he possibly resolve it?”
He maintained that the APC does not meddle in the internal affairs of other parties.
“Unlike the party of Ayu, APC does not “plant stories” and does not meddle in the internal affairs of other parties. That is an area of extreme and unrivaled competence of the PDP. In any event, the PDP is unraveling unstoppably and needs no help from the outside.
“Rather than distract himself in search of an illusory scapegoat, Ayu and stakeholders of his withering PDP should concentrate on finding an anchor to slow the Party’s rudderless drift” the statement reads.
He added that their focus is search of new and creative ways of improving the quality of life of Nigerians and working to convince them to vote APC in 2023.
