- The recent visit by APC governor to ex-president, Goodluck Jonathan continues to generate reactions
- The PDP in reaction to the APC governor's visit described it as an endorsement of the opposition
- A spokesperson for the party, Ologbondiyan said the visit has further affirmed that Nigeria is better under the governance of the PDP
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has said that a recent visit by governors of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to former President Goodluck Jonathan has further affirmed that Nigeria is better under the governance of the opposition.
Legit.ng gathered that the PDP stated this in reaction to the governors' visit on Friday, November 20, describing it as an endorsement of the opposition party's administration.
APC governors led by the acting national chairman of the party and Yobe state governor Mai Mala Buni held a private meeting with Jonathan at his residence in Abuja.
The party made this known in a statement on Sunday, November 22, through its spokesperson, Kola Ologbondiyan.
According to Ologbondiyan, the opposition receives the visit by APC governors as an apology by the ruling party to the PDP and Nigerians over the lies and other allegations deployed to grab power.
Ologbondiyan went on to warn Nigerians to be careful of the APC's antics, adding that the party will not allow the failed party and its pranksters to mislead them once again.
“The visit, which is a clear endorsement of the acceptability of the PDP administration, also indicates that the APC, in 2015, only created artificial symbols of misgovernance, corruption, and other alleged misgivings just to discredit our party and grab the levers of power to achieve their selfish desires.
“This visit to Jonathan by the APC governors is a direct acceptance of the successes recorded by our party in building a strong nation with a virile economy that was rated as one of the fastest-growing economies of the world.”
Earlier, Legit.ng reported that the APC is trying to convince a former president Jonathan, to run for president on its platform in 2023.
The report which was carried by This Day claimed that some leaders of the party have been pressuring the former president to consider the offer.
A source who spoke anonymously said governors on the platform of the APC who visited Jonathan to felicitate with him on his 63 birthday anniversary, used the occasion to subtly represent their presidential proposal to him.
