- The APC has been accused by the PDP of trying to divert attention by attacking former vice president, Atiku Abubakar
- The opposition wants the ruling party to respond to some allegations levelled against it
- The PDP spokesperson, Kola Ologbondiyan, recalled how the governor of Edo state, Godwin Obaseki, recently accused the APC national chairman, Adams Oshiomhole, of importing thugs
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has accused the All Progressives Congress (APC) of attacking Atiku Abubakar, the opposition party’s presidential candidate in 2019, just to divert attention from issues staring the ruling organization in the face.
The PDP claimed that the APC was responsible for the rising tension in the country in relation to crime and insurgency.
The opposition party alleged that the APC continues to feed fat from the anguish and economic repression of the citizens of the country.
“The party also alerts Nigerians to be wary of APC’s renewed attacks and baseless allegations against the PDP and our leaders, including former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, all in the failed bid to divert public attention from its atrocities against our country, including compromising our security architecture for selfish purposes,” the PDP claimed.
The party urged the APC to react to a recent claim by an international security expert, Eeben Barlow, that Nigeria is working to satisfy foreign interests in its fight against insurgency.
“It is instructive to note that the APC had engaged in an unwarranted attack on the PDP and Atiku Abubakar as well as sponsoring negative divisive publications in the last few days in the bid to divert public attention from this very grave issue.
“Only recently, Edo state Governor Godwin Obaseki accused the APC national chairman, Adams Oshiomhole, of always relying on thugs for elections and Nigerians know the devastation thuggery and its associated violence had caused the nation in the last five years of the APC,” the party said in a statement by its spokesperson, Kola Ologbondiyan.
Legit.ng earlier reported that the APC recently accused the PDP and Atiku of representing Nigeria's wasted years. The ruling party is yet to react to the recent allegations by the PDP.
