The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has advised the national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole, to stop pushing the APC third term discourse in the public space.
The opposition party also urged Oshiomhole to desist from going to the Presidential Villa to push the impossible as such will not save him from suspension by his party.
Reacting to remarks by the APC's national chairman that the rumoured reports that President Muhammadu Buhari plan to contest for presidency in 2023 was orchestrated by the PDP, the opposition said Oshiomhole will not be saved from "his inescapable prosecution over allegations of corruption and mismanagement of Edo state resources while he was governor of that state."
In a statement released on Thursday, January 2, by the party's national publicity secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, the PDP said the alleged frequent visit to the Presidential Villa by the APC's national chairman will not save the APC from fizzling away before 2023.
Ologbondiyan said: "Mr Oshiomhole should, therefore, stop sounding like a broken brass in his attempt to launder a failed merchandise."
"Of course, Nigerians need not be reminded, of the exit date of an administration that has caused them so much pains, abused our law, trampled on their rights and undermined our electoral process," Ologbondiyan said.
He warned the ruling party that Nigerians are already counting days for May 29, 2023, when the APC and the Buhari administration will be consigned to the dustbin of history.
"Oshiomhole should, therefore, accept the fact that Nigerians have moved ahead towards 2023 and that the APC is not in their equation," Ologbondiyan added.
