All Progressives Congress (APC) has again berated the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) over what it termed as the opposition party's desperate move to regain power in 2023.

Speaking on Channels TV on Friday, November 27, Yekini Nabena, APC deputy national publicity secretary, said the opposition is weak and lacked the moral ground to speak on power.

Nabena in a taunt also told the PDP that former president Goodluck Jonathan is a progressive elder statesman working for the administration of the President Muhammdu Buhari-led government.

The APC stalwarts, led by Mai Mala Buni, governor of Yobe state and caretaker chairman of the party, with other stalwarts, had visited Jonathan on Friday, November 20.

Though the visit coincided with the 63rd birthday of the former president, there were speculations that it had to do with the political permutations ahead of the 2023 presidential election.

Jonathan, a then-incumbent president and PDP presidential candidate, lost to APC's President Buhari in the 2015 presidential election, becoming the first sitting president to be voted out of office through the ballot.

This was contained in a statement released on Monday, November 23, in Abuja.

The APC spokesman told PDP to shift attention from frivolous activities and start "picking itself up" from the crisis of confidence presently bedevilling its leadership.

According to him, the APC on its part will continue to consolidate on its national appeal and acceptance as exemplified by its visit to Jonathan upon his 63rd birthday.
