- APC has berated the opposition party, PDP, over its comment on its (APC) direct primaries mode of selecting flag-bearers
- The statement was made available by APC's spokesperson, Nabena, who said PDP is a coward dog hiding under its shame of yesteryears
- He expressed confidence in Buhari winning the forthcoming presidential election
The All Progressives Congress (APC ) has said its direct primaries system remains the best democratic process for the adoption of its flag-bearer in preparation for the coming general elections.
The ruling party added that Peoples democratic Party (PDP)'s camp is jealous and unsettled by the move.
This is contained in a statement released by the spokesperson of the party, Yekini Nabena while reacting to a statement credited to the main opposition party, The Punch earlier reports.
Legit.ng gathers that the PDP has early made a statement condemning the ruling party's direct primary mode of choosing its standard party flag-bearers.
Nabena in his statement, however, berated the main opposition party, saying:"With over 13 million registered APC members coupled with a large section of non-partisan Nigerian electorate supporting the President Muhammadu Buhari-led APC administration, it would seem that the PDP on account of its attack of the APC’s adoption of direct primary particularly to elect its presidential candidate, has already conceded defeat even before the 2019 elections."
He further added that the ruling party"quite understands that the revolutionary and progressive idea of direct primaries to elect party candidates is strange to the PDP – a party known for its inability to ensure internal party democracy and actively promotes imposition of candidates against the will of its members.”
