The PDP on Saturday alleged a plot by leaders of the APC to disown Muhammadu Buhari upon what the opposition party claimed as the failures of the regime.
The PDP indeed alleged that President Buhari has been turned into a lame-duck by the seeming plots by APC leaders to kickstart the 2023 campaign barely one year into the life of the second term of the Buhari presidency.
The PDP made the assertions in a statement issued by its spokesman, Kola Ologbondinyan.
“The PDP says the frenzy by the APC to commence the 2023 election campaign, just a year into President Buhari’s second tenure of four years in office, further confirms that APC leaders are now looking beyond its current structure and government, having realized that the next three years under the Buhari-led APC administration would be a waste,” the PDP said.
“The PDP asserts that the underground moves by APC leaders to disown the Buhari administration, given its failures; the conversation about possible change of their party’s name as well as the plot to destabilize the PDP, are signs of desperation to hold on to power despite APC’s failures and explicit rejection by Nigerians.
“Our party and indeed discerning Nigerians have seen through the rambling of the APC, which is merely raising dusts to foul the political firmament in a bid to cover for its lack of internal cohesion, failure in governance and reneging on the promises they made to Nigerians in other to have access to power.
“The attitude and character of the APC have manifestly shown that it is mortally afraid to stand election in 2023, given that Nigerians have seen through their antics and are determined not to have anything to do with such a deceitful, beguiling, divisive and incompetent party in future elections.”
“APC has shown that it is a party without conscience; the reason it has failed, in the last five years, to bring together a Board of Trustees that ought to serve as the custodian of its supposed ideals and principles.
“Our party charges the APC factional caretaker committee Chairman, Governor Mai Mala Buni, to stop chasing shadows and go back to Yobe state, which has almost been taken over by bandits, since he abandoned his electoral mandate for politics in Abuja.”
