The PDP has rebuffed the APC House of Representatives leader, Hassan Ado Doguwa as it Saturday confirmed ongoing talks with some APC lawmakers for a mass defection to the opposition party.si
The PDP said that Doguwa in debunking the talks and slamming the PDP House leader, Ndudi Elumelu chose to side the failures of the Muhammadu Buhari administration.
GreenWhiteGreen GWG reports that Doguwa had in a statement debunked the claims of a defection to the PDP as he lashed at Elumelu for allegedly spinning proceedings in a closed door session of the House.
But rebuffing Doguwa, the PDP in a statement issued by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondinyan said:
“The unwarranted attack on the Minority Leader has further exposed the insensitivity of the APC leadership in the House of Representatives to the killings, kidnapping, bloodletting, violence, hunger and utter hopelessness pervading our country due to the manifest incompetence and divisiveness of the Buhari-led APC administration.
“The attack further shows that the APC leadership in the House is insensitive to the fact that our nation is heading to a failed state; that all parts of our nation is practically under siege; that Nigerians can no longer move freely around our country, as terrorists, bandits and kidnappers have taken over towns, communities and highways in various parts of our country, and that President Buhari-led APC has no solution, having been overwhelmed by the demands of governance.
“The PDP counsels the APC leadership in the House of Representatives to note that the move by the lawmakers is in consonance with the wishes and aspiration of the vast majority of their constituents and Nigerians across board, who are fed up with the failures of the APC administration.
“For the avoidance of doubt, our party confirms being in talks with patriotic Nigerians who are trapped in the APC; who are fed up with the incompetence, lies, falsehood and corruption in the APC administration and, as such, ready to join forces with our party to rescue our nation.
“The PDP had earlier alerted Nigerians that the APC had resorted to gaging its members from speaking out against the failure of the Buhari Presidency and the APC to tackle insecurity in our country.”
